For the second consecutive preseason game, the Steelers have lost one of their draft picks to an ugly leg injury.
In tonight’s preseason finale, linebacker Sean Spence, the Steelers’ third-round pick in this year’s NFL draft, was carted off the field after he suffered what appeared to be a serious left leg injury. Spence’s leg awkwardly underneath him when he was blocked from the side while chasing Panthers backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen.
Last week the Steelers lost guard David DeCastro, their first-round draft pick, when he suffered a knee injury in the preseason game against the Bills. DeCastro is expected to miss much of the season.
It’s too soon to say how much time Spence will miss. But his injury didn’t look good.
