Vance McDonald To Practice Tuesday

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that tight end Vance McDonald has been cleared to come off the COVID-19 list and will return to practice on Tuesday. Meanwhile, tight end Zach Gentry (knee) is dealing with a significant knee injury and will not play on Thursday night against the division-rival Ravens. McDonald hasn't played since the Week 9 win over the Cowboys, but it looks like they'll have him this week against Baltimore. As long as Eric Ebron remains healthy, McDonald just isn't fantasy relevant with all of the offensive weapons around him. The veteran tight end has only nine receptions on 11 targets for 61 scoreless yards in eight games this season.

Vance McDonald Tests Positive For COVID-19

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday. McDonald was immediately quarantined and is being put on the Reserve/COVID-19 list, which means he won't play in Week 10 against the Bengals. Pittsburgh is in the league's intensive protocol and is in the process of completing contact tracing. The team announced on Saturday that a staff member self-quarantined after testing positive for the virus. McDonald did not play in Week 9 and hasn't been fantasy relevant behind Eric Ebron in 2020. The only unbeaten team in the NFL after a close win over the Cowboys in Week 9, the Steelers will host the Bengals in Week 10. Stay tuned to see if McDonald had any high-risk close contacts.

Vance McDonald Questionable Against Cowboys

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald (illness) is questionable for Week 9 against the Cowboys with a non-COVID-19-related illness. McDonald first showed up on the injury report on Friday and didn't practice. McDonald just hasn't been relevant in fantasy this year with Eric Ebron the team's primary pass-catching tight end. The 30-year-old has only eight receptions on 10 targets for 59 yards in seven games played this season. Even if McDonald is active on Sunday, he'll play second fiddle to Ebron, who should be considered a high-end TE2 with TE1 upside if he finds paydirt.
