TE Vance McDonald among inactives for Steelers game against Bengals

Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Vance McDonald (89) is tackled by Seattle Seahawks linebacker Mychal Kendricks (56) during an NFL football game, Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, in Pittsburgh.

Tight end Vance McDonald, who missed the entire week of practice with a shoulder injury, will not play for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.

McDonald was one of seven players listed as inactive for the AFC North game between the division’s two winless teams. Also inactive for the Steelers are fullback Roosevelt Nix, outside linebacker Anthony Chickillo, guard Fred Johnson, tackle Chuks Okorafor, defensive end Isaiah Buggs and inside linebacker Vince Williams.

With McDonald out, the Steelers will dress two tight ends for the prime-time game: Nick Vannett, acquired earlier in the week from Seattle, and rookie fifth-round pick Zach Gentry.

Wide receiver Donte Moncrief, who was inactive last week at San Francisco, is on the active roster.

Inactive for the Bengals are defensive end Carl Lawson, defensive end Kerry Wynn, defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow, running back Trayveon Williams, tackle Cordy Glenn, wide receiver A.J. Green and quarterback Jake Dolegala.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
