PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with potentially bad news, as right tackle Zach Banner is dealing with a major injury.


NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero says that the initial diagnosis for Banner is a torn ACL, which would be season-ending.


Banner had to be helped off the field without putting weight on his right leg. The look on his face said it all.


After the game, Banner tweeted:


I love you Pittsburgh.


I love this game.


We won. That’s all that matters.


Banner took over the starting job this summer.


Running back James Conner is also down with an ankle injury.
