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

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.

No, not at all.

I feel McDonald is closer to seeing IR than he is the field.

That's exactly what I'm afraid of. But if that's the case, then I wonder why they haven't yet put him on IR.

My other thought is that it might be plantar fasciitis, and they're keeping him off his feet to help the swelling subside.

EDIT: just saw jewelsong's post. PF is something that never really goes away unless you stop high impact activities (e.g. running), so I hope that he doesn't have a severe case.

Vance McDonald on the field but not dressed today. It's been 22 days since he last practiced.
Safeties Marcus Allen and Sean Davis in pads. Good signs for both.
Dan McCullers isn't suited up today. T.J. Watt is in pads. We'll see what his level of participation is.
Players being introduced. Okorafor suited up. Hurt shoulder in Thursdays game vs GB.
Matt Feiler working 3rd team center today. Haven't spotted rookie Patrick Morris, who got hurt vs GB.

McDonald has a chronic vaginal strain and it's getting old. JFC.

PF is no joke. As a long-time runner, I know it can sideline someone for weeks.

Actually, it can be put to rest. Stretching, good inserts, rolling out the ball of the foot with a tennis ball, rest & wearing the right shoes all help. I've had PF a few times and yes it sidelines you for a few weeks. The way it becomes chronic? By doing nothing but resting. PF is primarily caused by folks putting to much weight on the arch of their feet, most commonly called: over-pronation. It is exacerbated by having the wrong shoe fit. In cleats, this means a good insert to correct. If it isn't corrected? You get too much emphasis & weight on your arches when you run and yeah bad things happen from there.

All those types treatments, plus several cortizone shots, did nothing for my PF. I had to give up running and jogging and wear an air boot for 6 weeks to make my PF subside.

McDonald is a world class athlete, and I trust that the Steelers have world class doctors and trainers to help McDonald, but PF can be a stubborn annoyance.
