Report: Steelers RT Banner has torn ACL

Pittsburgh Steelers right tackle Zach Banner sustained a torn ACL during the team’s season-opening victory over the New York Giants, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday.

An MRI is scheduled for Banner, who was injured in the fourth quarter on the same play that JuJu Smith-Schuster reeled in an 8-yard touchdown pass from Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers went on to record a 26-16 victory.

Banner, 26, has appeared in 23 games (two starts) during his career with the Cleveland Browns (2017) and Steelers.

Former Western Michigan lineman Chukwuma Okorafor, a third-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft, is listed as Banner’s backup on Pittsburgh’s depth chart.
