    Rumor both may miss the remainder of the season. We’ll get DeCastro back but it’s looking really thin on the OL.

    Tomlin confirms Zach Banner is out for Denver, gives updates on James Conner, David DeCastro

    By Bob Flounders |

    Road wins are never easy, even in this unique 2020 in which the Steelers and New York Giants played in front of no fans Monday night in East Rutherford, N.J.

    Pittsburgh pulled away from New York 26-16 in the second half and prepares for its home opener Sunday against Denver. Both teams are operating on a short week as the Broncos fell 16-14 at home to Tennessee on Monday night.

    Denver will be without standout pass rusher Von Miller, who suffered a significant ankle injury in prior to the team’s loss to the Titans.

    And Pittsburgh is dealing with some significant injuries on its offensive line and in the backfield.

    Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that tackle Zach Banner is out for Sunday with a right knee injury but would not rule out running back James Conner or offensive linemen David DeCastro and Stefen Wisniewski.

    Connor suffered an ankle injury in the first half and gave way to Benny Snell, who ran for a career-high 113 yards.

    DeCastro was ruled out of the opener with a knee injury, and Wisniewski, a Penn State grad, started in his place at right guard. But he suffered a pectoral injury late in the contest.

    Let’s get to Tomlin’s Tuesday’s thoughts on all of the above players.

    On Banner: “I think it’s safe to characterize Zach Banner as out for this week.”

    On Wisniewski and Conner: “They’re still in the process of getting scans on ‘Wiz’ and James Conner but I think their forecast is a more favorable one, so we’ll leave the light on for those two.”

    On DeCastro: “I don’t know, I’m hopeful that he’s able to work (Wednesday). We’ll see.”

    Tuesday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 2

    Published: Sep 15, 2020
    Around the NFL Staff

    Zach Banner's first season as Pittsburgh's starting right tackle is likely over after one game.

    The initial diagnosis for Banner's knee injury is a torn ACL, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported, per a source informed of the situation. Banner will undergo an MRI to verify the injury, which will end his season if confirmed.

    Banner suffered the injury late in Pittsburgh's 26-16 win over the New York Giants on a game-sealing touchdown pass to JuJu Smith-Schuster. While the Steelers enjoyed their first victory of 2020, Banner was visibly upset on the sideline as his teammates helped him move from one location to another, seemingly aware of his unfortunate outcome.

    The former USC lineman is in his third professional season and second campaign with Pittsburgh after beginning his NFL career with Cleveland. Former Western Michigan lineman Chukwuma Okorafor is listed as Banner's backup on Pittsburgh's depth chart.

    Elsewhere in Pittsburgh's offense, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters that offensive lineman Stefan Wisniewski (pectoral) and running back James Conner (ankle) are still being evaluated. Tomlin added the Steelers will "leave the light on" for Conner to play against the Broncos in Week 2.

    This is where losing Finney in the offseason hurts.
