Zach Banner Tells SteelerNation He Is Grinding To Come Back

Every single member of SteelerNation can not wait to see their 2020 Week 1 starting right tackle return to the football field. After putting together a solid showing in Week 1 last season before exiting with an injury, Zach Banner has been grinding to get back to the field.

Tuesday afternoon he assured everyone that that grind hasn’t stopped. Banner put out a tweet from his personal Twitter account stating he is continuing to make strides in his recovery and that it kills him to not be out there with his teammates.



The Pittsburgh Steelers offensive line has had its struggles throughout the first quarter of the 2021 season, but are coming off of what is their best performance of the season.

Adding Banner back to a group that appears to be starting to gel and become more consistent should be a big boost in terms of both play and team moral. Banner has always been a fan favorite, as well as someone who has increased the energy level of his teammates when he is on the field.

Banner returned to practice last week which started the 21-day window the Steelers have to either activate him to the 53-man roster, or place him on season ending IR. Let’s all hope Banner continues to progress the way he needs to and gets back on the field as soon as possible!
