If this is confirmed by tests, it would likely end McGee’s 2018 season and lead to him being placed on injured reserve.
McGee, 26, signed on with the Panthers as an undrafted free agent out of Florida back in 2016. Unfortunately, he lasted just a few weeks in Carolina after he was waived from injured reserve with a settlement.
McGee had a brief stint with the Chargers before he was waived following last year’s draft. The Steelers later signed McGee during the preseason and later added him to their practice squad before bringing him back on a futures contract this past January.
During his college career between Virginia and Florida, McGee recorded 112 receptions for 1,150 yards receiving and 11 touchdowns.
