    Spence

    According to twitter, Kaboly is reporting that Sean Spence will come off the PUP list next week and practice with the team.

    Some good news in an otherwise bleak season so far.

    Silly question but does this mean he might actually play this year? Who gets cut to make room??

    Crush your enemies, see them driven before you, hear the lamentations of their women.

    I don't know who gets cut (guess would be the LB they brought back, Sylvester), but I think he has to be able to play. This team isn't in a position to give roster spots out to spectators... besides Whimper.

    I'm happy to hear it. And lord knows we need as many young, fast bodies as we can get.

    This "kid" as you call him is fighting his azz off to return from a career threatening knee injury and you say, "he better be worth all the hype..."

    Are you serious???

    Would the Steelers be this patient with his recovery if he wasn't all that and a bag of chips? I'm thinking not.

    Shawn's got it right. I've heard our LB coach state he thought Spence is worth the wait. Kudos to Spence for fighting through this. I'm rooting for him.

    I think the Steelers have 3 weeks to either add him to the 53 or put him on IR...Time will tell if he is ready to play football this year. Hopefully he can make a full recovery and finally start his NFL career...

    Spence has been hyped on this board and that's about it...

    ???
    IMO, he wouldn't have to be that great to be an improvement over what we have.

    That said, it would be amazing if he were truly ready to play in the next few weeks. Even if he's physically recovered, I would think it would take a number of weeks for him to get into "playing shape." And we need to remember that he's basically a rookie...there will no doubt be a learning curve.
