Per his twitter account on Saturday, Steelers OT Max Starks is heading in for surgery next week.
Hey tweeps, thanks for the well wishes. I go in for surgery next week, but I’m thankful for your prayers and support!
According to Mike Tomlin at his season ending press conference, Starks sustained an ACL injury so one can presume this surgery is to repair a tear of his ACL. I’m sure we’ll hear more from Max as it gets closer and then when he’s out and beginning rehab. Things could certainly change for the Steelers heading into 2012 at the Tackle position if Starks is not ready to go by training camp.
