An already suspect Steelers offensive line was further weakened Tuesday when coach Mike Tomlin announced starting left tackle Max Starks will miss the rest of the season with a left knee injury.
Right tackle Max Starks, the Pittsburgh Steelers' starter for the past two seasons but likely to be challenged for the No. 1 job in 2007, has signed a one-year contract with the team.
Steelers tackle Max Starks underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a damaged meniscus cartilage in his right knee and will likely miss the final two games of the season.
Former Florida offensive lineman Max Starks is the son of Ross Browner, who played nine seasons in the NFL.
