Pittsburgh Steelers starting right tackle Zach Banner will undergo knee surgery this Friday, and will miss the remainder of the 2020 season.
The veteran offensive lineman announced the news in a video posted on social media Tuesday night. “Everything’s going to be OK,” Banner said in the Twitter video. “I’m going to get over this. I’m excited about my recovery process and I’m going to come back even stronger next season. It’s another obstacle that I’ve got to get over.”
The 26-year-old Banner sustained a torn ACL during the fourth quarter of the Steelers’ 26-16 win over the New York Giants on Monday Chuks Okorafor replaced Banner in Monday night’s game against the Giants, and is expected to fill in for Banner moving forward.
