It’s been a long time since we’ve heard an update on the condition of Steelers linebacker Sean Spence, who suffered an ugly knee injury last preseason. And the update we now have doesn’t sound good.
Steelers linebackers coach Keith Butler told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette it will be “miraculous” if Spence can play football again.
A 2012 third-round draft pick out of Miami, Spence suffered a torn ACL and LCL and a dislocated kneecap during a preseason game against the Panthers.
The Steelers plan to keep Spence on the roster for at least another year, but there is little hope that he can play in 2013. The Steelers just hope he might be able to play in 2014.
