Steelers place Sean Spence on injured reserve

Posted · Add Comment

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Sean Spence was placed on injured reserve due to a knee injury.

His season is now over.

“There was frustration at first because I worked so hard to get to this point, all offseason, during spring ball and in camp and now I am back in the same predicament,” Spence told Pittsburgh reporters. “There is some disappointment, some letdown, but there is a reason to rejoice.”

A former third-round draft pick from Miami, Spence got hurt last season. He opened the season on the physically unable to perform list.

“I beat a lot of odds,” Spence said. “People thought I would never be able to walk again without a brace, never be able to run again without a brace. I did all of that. I think unfortunately I just didn’t have enough time. I have a sense of comfort knowing that I will be able to play again.”
