Playing for the 49ers and Steelers, Vance McDonald ends his career with a 181/2036/15 line over 101 NFL contests. The eight-year veteran will save Pittsburgh $5.2 million in cap space for the 2021 season.
Ebron was hit by a couple of Bengals in the second quarter of the game. Ebron called for a flag and then laid back down on the turf and needed attention. The Steelers offense is struggling and Ebron has been a key target in the red zone. His status for Week 16 will need to be monitored. McDonald and Gentry are up next on the depth chart.
Less than 24 hours after the Steelers defeated the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 24-19, ESPN's Field Yates reported that the Steelers had placed tight end Vance McDonald on the reserve/COVID-19 list after he tested positive.
The story said while this usually wouldn't be too worrisome, McDonald was showing symptoms of an illness days before the Steelers and Cowboys kicked off. He was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday of last week, but missed Friday with an "illness." He was listed as questionable to suit up for Pittsburgh in Week 9, but he did end up playing and caught his only target for a total of two yards. The story also said just because McDonald tested positive on Monday does not necessarily mean he had the coronavirus when he was feeling ill last week. Contract tracing could give us more information in the coming days.

Steelers TE Vance McDonald (illness, questionable) missed practice Friday and is questionable for Week 9. If he's out, Eric Ebron could see a few extra snaps.
