Steelers TE Xavier Grimble underwent surgery to repair ligament in thumb/wrist area, per source. The hope is a Week 1 return but will be out a few weeks. Team already thin at TE with Vance McDonald nursing a foot injury https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/ ... 4996965376

After brief stint in concussion protocol, Ben Roethlisberger is practicing in full Saturday, including his normal rugby ball warm up routine. https://twitter.com/JFowlerESPN/status/ ... 8358864896

Well, you have Bucky Hodges, Jaylen Samuel, and Pharoah McKeever or whatever the hell his name is. Opportunity for someone to get some TE reps.

Sign a new TE at cutdowns. That 4th string TE from Green Bay was pretty good. He was killing our secondary. Get ready to replace Old McDonald who is stealing a paycheck. Due like 5M next year.

Getting these TEs with lethal pass catching and game changing potential only to have them stand around on crutches all the time fricking sucks.

He'll be a cap casualty next year.

Does anyone know what is wrong with McDonald? All I have seen is that he has a "foot" injury, with no further detail.

Grimble is out at least to the first regular season game and it could be more. No further updates on McDonalds foot injury. He gets more injuries than Evil Kenival. Besides Outlaw, no other TE has regular season experience. Time for a roster move?

McDonald had aptly filled the shoes of LaDarius Green.

So frustrating!

It is indeed frustrating. A healthy McDonald = win v Pats and #1 seed. Healthy Green 2015 could've and likely would've ended very differently.

Will anyone be surprised if “foot” ends up meaning Lisfranc? I won’t.
