McGee (Achilles) will be placed on injured reserve Monday, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
McGee tore his Achilles in OTAs last week and could be sidelined around 6-to-9 months. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the league year.
McGee is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles tendon during Wednesday's OTA session, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.
McGee was a member of the Steelers' practice squad last season, but he reportedly stood a decent chance at making the 53-man roster in 2018. If the diagnosis of a torn Achilles proves true, McGee would almost certainly miss the entire campaign.
McGee signed a reserve/future contract with the Steelers on Monday, TribLive.com reports.
McGee joined the Steelers in August and failed to make the 53-man roster, but finished the season on Pittsburgh's practice squad.
