Steelers Activate OT Zach Banner

Pittsburgh Steelers fans got some exciting news Saturday afternoon as fan favorite Zach Banner was activated off of injured reserve. In order to make room for Banner on the 53-man roster, the Steelers had to place wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster on IR after he underwent shoulder surgery earlier this week.



Banner, who was slated to start at offensive tackle in the beginning of the season, will be back on the game day roster for the first time since Week 1 of the 2020 season. Banner tore his ACL in the season opener last year against the New York Giants and has been chomping at the bit to get back. It’s unclear whether the Steelers will start Banner on Sunday, but expect him to get some significant playing time over the course of the season.
