Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.

Footballguys view: McDonald returned and he was productive last week, but he might not be ready for Sunday night's game. He has had trouble staying healthy in the past, so this isn't a shock. New acquisition Nick Vannett would start if McDonald can't go vs. the Chargers.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 4, but is listed as questionable for Week 5.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 27.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald misses practice    Thu Sep 26, 03:24 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.

Footballguys view: Nick Vannett is a brand new Steeler, but he could start at tight end this weekend. Rookie Zach Gentry is the team's only other option at tight end if McDonald is out. He isn't a viable play until Mason Rudolph gets it on track anyway.

  Steelers | Shoulder sprain for Vance McDonald    Tue Sep 24, 09:41 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) is dealing with a shoulder sprain but isn't expected to miss an extended amount of time, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Footballguys view: That's an interesting news item considering the Steelers just traded Seattle for Nick Vannett. The Steelers might just be covering their bases in case McDonald needs to miss more time than they are anticipating.

  Steelers | Vance McDonald in doubt for Week 4    Tue Sep 24, 02:29 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (shoulder) was spotted at the team's facility with his arm in a sling Tuesday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: McDonald has talent and seems to be a favorite target of QB Mason Rudolph...but the guy is always banged up. He played in only 15 snaps against the 49ers in Week 3. Xavier Grimble and Zach Gentry would get more work for the Steelers if McDonald has to miss time.

  Steelers | Pittsburgh hoping to spread the wealth    Mon Jun 3, 02:14 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers WR JuJu Smith-Schuster is the 'obvious primary option' in the passing game, but the team believes it will have at least nine viable pass-catching options, according to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. TE Vance McDonald is 'poised for an expanded role,' while WR Donte Moncrief is being asked to learn all three receiver positions.

Footballguys view: Fantasy GMs know that Smith-Schuster is going to be a stud WR1 in 2019, but behind him there is nothing but potential breakout players and question marks. We'll be monitoring these battles at the Steelers WR position closely in training camp. Smith-Schuster is going off the board at WR6 (2.04) in 12-team PPR leagues. The other Steelers receivers currently being drafted include James Washington (WR46, 10.06) and Donte Moncrief (WR59, 13.12). In a high-powered Steelers passing attack, these are players to follow to and through training camp and the preseason.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald (hip) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 13.

Footballguys view: McDonald's hip injury doesn't look like it will limit him on Sunday against the Chargers. He's a solid streamer with the strong cornerback play by Los Angeles possibly encouraging Ben Roethlisberger to throw more to his tight ends.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald registered three receptions for 27 yards and a touchdown in Week 11 against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Monday, Nov. 18.

Pittsburgh Steelers TE Vance McDonald caught all four of his targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in a 52-21 win over the Carolina Panthers in Week 10.
