Two weeks after breaking his right ring finger, wide receiver Donte Moncrief is a full practice participant with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 26-year-old was back on the field Wednesday as he competes for the No. 2 receiving spot behind JuJu Smith-Schuster.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Moncrief's experience has helped him get up to speed quickly with the Steelers, who signed the five-year NFL veteran to a two-year, $9 million contract in March. "Cumulative reps, no question," Tomlin said, per The Athletic. "Money in the bank."

Moncrief caught 48 passes for 668 yards and three scores in 16 games with the Jacksonville Jaguars last season. In four seasons with the Indianapolis Colts (2014-17), he caught 152 passes for 1,875 yards and 18 touchdowns.
