The Pittsburgh Steelers named Zach Banner the starting right tackle for the season opener Monday night.

Banner will be just one of several new faces in different spots when the Steelers open against the New York Giants. With right guard David DeCastro being slowed by a knee injury that has kept him out of practice for nearly two weeks, the Steelers could have starters in three new positions against the Giants.

Matt Feiler switched from right tackle to left guard, replacing the retired Ramon Foster. Free-agent signee Stefen Wisniewski will fill in at right guard if DeCastro can’t play. And Banner edged out Chuks Okorafor as starter at Feiler’s former spot.
