Pittsburgh Steeler’s close end Vance McDonald was put on the reserve / COVID-19 list on Monday after testing positive for the virus.
The Steelers said they were informed of a positive test Monday morning, but the team did not immediately reveal the identity of the player they said was in self-quarantine. Later in the day, the NFL’s daily transaction report listed McDonald as a player.
McDonald played 24 snaps (20 offenses, four special teams) and scored a 2-yard pass in Sunday’s 24:19 win over the Dallas Cowboys. The team included him in their injury report on Friday, citing illness and calling him questionable, but he traveled with the team and played against Dallas.
McDonald has nine receptions for 61 yards in eight games this season, his fourth with the club.
In his eight NFL seasons, McDonald has caught 175 passes for 1,998 yards and 15 touchdowns in 95 games (71 starts). He spent his first four years with the San Francisco 49ers.
