Held out of practice after being limited on Wednesday, McDonald has not yet been able to take a full part in training since suffering a foot injury during camp on July 29.When speaking with Teresa Varley of Steelers.com, McDonald was obviously disappointed with how his offseason has gone and it seems highly unlikely he will be cleared to play against the Cleveland Browns. Perhaps the biggest surprise of the injury reports so far this week has been the absence of Ramon Foster’s name. While a knee injury suffered during training camp seem to suggest he would miss some playing time at the start of the year, he appears to be much further along in his recovery than many might have expected. A full participant in both days of practice so far, Foster has could be a surprise starter on Sunday. As he told VarleyNothing has been reported all week about the health of T.J. Watt either [url=http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/chris-boswell-jersey]Authentic Chris Boswell Jersey[/url] , and it can only be hoped that he has recovered enough from his hamstring injury to be able to play in Cleveland too. As always, the Steelers final injury report of the week will be the critical one when it comes to determining player availability. Full injury report for Thursday September 9, as per Steelers.com.Steelers: TE Vance McDonald (Foot) - DNPBrowns: LB Genard Avery (Glute) - Full, LB James Burgess (Concussion) - DNP, DT Trevon Coley (Ankle) - Full, TE Seth DeValve (Quad) - Limited [url=http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/terrell-edmunds-jersey]http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/terrell-edmunds-jersey[/url] , DB E.J. Gaines (Knee) - DNP, WR Josh Gordon (Hamstring) - Limited, T Desmond Harrison (Knee) - Limited, LB Christian Kirksey (Shoulder) - Full, DB Damarious Randall (Knee) - Full With offensive numbers exploding around the league over the first half of the season, it’s no surprise that there are a lot of players on pace for big numbers this season.That group includes the five quarterbacks currently on pace to throw for 5 [url=http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/alejandro-villanueva-jersey]Authentic Alejandro Villanueva Jersey[/url] ,000 yards. That’s the same number of players who have done it in the history of the NFL — Drew Brees has done it five times — and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is one of the five, was asked if that impacted the accomplishment.Roethlisberger threw for 4,952 yards in 2014, which is good for 11th best in a single season, and he’s currently on pace for 5 [url=http://www.pittsburghsteelersteamstore.com/le_veon-bell-jersey]Womens Le'Veon Bell Jersey[/url] ,120 yards.“It’s still a pretty big deal,” Roethlisberger said, via the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I know I’ve never gotten there and a lot of other guys haven’t. It’s still probably a pretty big number, but it seems like there might be a few guys on pace this year.”Big deal or not, Roethlisberger said that winning games is “all that matters to me.” The Steelers have won four in a row with the Panthers coming to town on Thursday night.
