Steelers TE Vance McDonald (back) is questionable for this weekend’s game against Vikings. He was added to the injury report on Thursday and didn’t practice on Friday. We’d bet against him playing, but McDonald shouldn’t have been in your fantasy plans anyway. McDonald’s absence would give TE Jesse James a slight boost.
