Report: Zach Banner Out for Season after ACL Injury



Steelers right tackle Zach Banner has suffered an ACL tear in his right knee, according to a report by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, and will miss the rest of the 2020 season.

Banner was injured in the fourth quarter of the Steelers season-opening, 26-16 win over the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium on Monday and did not return to the game.

After the game, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that Banner was still being evaluated. Pelissero said that Banner will need to have an MRI performed to confirm the preliminary diagnosis.

Third-year tackle Chukwuma Okorafor replaced Banner during Monday’s game. The Steelers played without starting right guard David DeCastro, who missed the game with a knee injury and backup Stefen Wisniewski left the game with a pectoral injury.
