Steelers place RT Zach Banner on IR

PITTSBURGH — Zach Banner’s season is over. The Steelers placed the right tackle on injured reserve Wednesday, two days after he tore the ACL in his right knee in a win over the New York Giants.

Banner edged Chukwuma Okorafor during an extended training camp battle to earn the starting job. His season ended in the fourth quarter against the Giants when his knee appeared to give out while dropping back in pass protection.

Okorafor, a third-round pick in the 2018 draft, figures to get the start when the Steelers host Denver in their home opener on Sunday.

The Steelers filled Banner’s roster spot by bringing back offensive lineman Jerald Hawkins. Pittsburgh originally drafted Hawkins in the fourth round in 2016 but he struggled to stay healthy, appearing in just five games over three seasons. He bounced from Indianapolis to Tampa Bay to Houston before being re-signed by Pittsburgh.

Bullock expected t

to go vs. Browns

CINCINNATI — The Bengals claimed former Browns kicker Austin Seibert off waivers but expect Randy Bullock to be ready to play in Cleveland on Thursday night.

Bullock missed a 31-yard field goal with 2 seconds left Sunday when his left calf cramped, leaving the Bengals with a 16-13 loss to the Chargers. Bullock fully practiced Tuesday and coach Zac Taylor said he would be the kicker heading into their intrastate rivalry game.

Bullock’s calf cramped as he planted it to make the kick, which then sailed wide right. He said he’d never previously developed a cramp while kicking.

“That’s a kick I make 99 times out of 100,” Bullock said. “It was a freak deal.”

Seibert, a fifth-round pick in 2019, missed a field goal and an extra-point attempt during Cleveland’s 38-6 loss to the Ravens on Sunday. He gives the Bengals another kicker in case Bullock has more calf problems.

The Bengals also placed starting right guard Xavier Su’a-Filo on injured reserve with an ankle injury suffered against the Chargers.
