McGee (Achilles) was not tendered a contract by the Steelers and is now an unrestricted free agent, freelance NFL writer Howard Balzer reports.
McGee missed the entirety of 2018 have suffering a torn Achilles' tendon at OTAs last May. It's currently unclear where the 27-year-old stands in his recovery.
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.
