LB Sean Spence Placed On Season-Ending IR

Sean Spence

The hopes that LB Sean Spence was going to be able to make it all the way back this season is now officially over, as today the Steelers placed him on Injured Reserve, ending his season.

The linebacker’s repaired knee has just not responded enough for the Steelers to think that he will be able to contribute in any way this season.

“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 said on the Steelers official site.

“There is some disappointment, some letdown, but there is a reason to rejoice.”

The 2012 third-round pick has been trying to make it back on the field after he went down with a nasty injury in the final preseason game last season vs the Panthers.

It was an injury that could have ended his career before it ever got started, but now he thinks that despite the setback he will play again.

“People thought I would never be able to walk again without a brace,” Spence said.

“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.”
