    Shaun Suisham will have surgery on his left knee this week and the Steelers will go shopping for another kicker.

    Suisham has a torn anterior cruciate ligament and cartilage damage, and the team will almost surely place him on injured reserve, ending his season. The 10-year veteran was injured on the opening kickoff of the second half Sunday night’s first preseason game in Canton, Ohio, won by the Minnesota Vikings, 14-3.

    Suisham converted 59 of 64 field goal tries over the past two seasons. He signed with the Steelers during the 2011 season and is their most accurate kicker on field goals in their history.

    Among the possible kickers the Steelers will look at are veterans Billy Cundiff, Shayne Graham and Jay Feely.
