Banner took to social media on Tuesday even to let everyone know how much he appreciates them, that he is having surgery on Friday and that he will be back.

Banner is in the final year of his contract with the Steelers and is set to be a free agent. Hopefully this will be an opportunity for Banner to rehab, be ready to roll when training camp rolls around next year and he can get a reasonable contract with the Steelers to keep him in Pittsburgh.
