Tuesday afternoon, Pittsburgh Steelers tight end, Eric Ebron took to social media and posted what looked like an emotional Instagram post foreshadowing the news ahead.
It looks like the knee injury that Ebron suffered Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers is going to force Ebron to need surgery.
Steelers TE Eric Ebron is expected to miss extended time as he braces for potential knee surgery, per source. Ebron, who got injured Week 11, is waiting on a second opinion but a procedure is the likely approach as of now.

In a related move, the Steelers promoted tight end Kevin Rader from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
More to come.
