Steelers TE Vance McDonald (foot) took full practice reps again Thursday. It looks like McDonald will make his return this week. He was expected to be the primary receiving tight end for the Steelers but Jesse James played pretty well against the Browns.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Jesse James ran just 29 routes last week but caught five passes for a career-high 135 yards and a touchdown. He's now caught eight passes for 198 yards and a touchdown this season. Tampa has allowed 20 receptions to opposing tight ends on just 24 targets. James and Vance McDonald split TE reps pretty evenly last week but there could be enough to go around this week, making both solid TE2 plays with TE1 upside. James' production, however, doesn't seem sustainable.
