The team announced McDonald’s return to the active roster along with two other moves involving tight ends. They placed Zach Gentry on injured reserve and signed Kevin Rader off the practice squad.
Gentry hurt his knee in last Sunday’s win over the Jaguars. That was only his second appearance of the regular season and Gentry caught one ball for four yards in Week 10.
Rader has spent most of the last two years on the Pittsburgh practice squad. He has never appeared in a regular season game.
