Pittsburgh Steelers nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) left the Thursday night game against the Baltimore Ravens in the second half with a shoulder injury but it looks like he might have a chance to play Sunday night against the Carolina Panthers.
According to Mike Prisuta of DVE Radio, McLendon said he participated in individual drills Monday and felt “really good.”

That’s great news as McLendon has been the lone bright spot on the Steelers defensive line in the first two games.
The Steelers former undrafted free agent has registered nine total tackles in 64 total snaps played so far this season. Five of those tackles have been credited as being stops.
Steelers heads coach Mike Tomlin will likely address the status of McLendon during his Tuesday press conference.
