The Steelers selected Sean Spence with their third round draft choice in 2012. Spence suffered an ugly knee injury in the 2012 preseason that led many to believe that he’d never play another down of football again.
According to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Sean Spence will start the season on the PUP list, and is hopeful to return to the team in 2013. Fittipaldo also said Spence has regained some of his speed.
The Steelers have major depth issues at linebacker. If Spence can make a full recovery, it would be a boost for the Steelers.
