Steelers lose Max Starks for season with neck injury

PSR Logo
The veteran offensive tackle is expected to recover in time for the 2011 season after suffering injury in Monday's win over Cincinnati.

Steelers offensive tackle Max Starks was lost for the season today when the team placed him on the Reserve/Injured List due to a neck injury suffered in Monday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Starks, a seven-year veteran, will require surgery and the team expects him to make a full recovery in time for the 2011 season.

Veteran Jonathan Scott replaced Scott on the line Monday night.

The Steelers replaced Starks on their roster by activating rookie offensive tackle Chris Scott from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List. Scott (6-4, 319) was selected by the Steelers with the team’s first pick in the fifth round (151st overall) out of Tennessee in last April’s NFL Draft. Scott missed all of training camp and the first eight games of the regular season after he injured his foot while working out last summer.

Chris Scott will wear No. 61 for the Steelers.
