McDonald Hoping to Continue Growth in 2016
This was a difficult setback for McDonald because he was looking to continue building on a career year in 2015 this season as San Francisco's primary tight end.
Prior to the injury, he had five catches, 93 yards and two touchdowns in 2016 after setting career highs with 30 catches for 326 yards and three touchdowns in 2015. He appeared in 14 games last year after playing in just eight during the 2014 campaign.
The 26-year-old demonstrated his explosiveness in Week 2 with a 75-yard touchdown catch against the Carolina Panthers in which he raced up the sideline and picked up a majority of the ground after the reception.
Now, with the 49ers making a quarterback change from Blaine Gabbert to Colin Kaepernick, McDonald will look to get in a groove with the team's new signal-caller.
