    It was for a broken finger/hand (depending on who's reporting) in October. It was affecting his ability to show his full range of motion so the Steelers had to make a call.

    Sean Spence won’t play this season

    Steelers linebacker [URL=""]Sean Spence[/URL] won’t make his NFL debut this season.

    The 2012 third-round pick started practicing [URL=""]a few weeks ago[/URL] after being placed on the physically unable to perform list at the start of camp as a result of the serious knee injury he suffered in the 2012 preseason. The Steelers had to make a choice about putting him on the active roster this week and announced

    Wednesday that they won’t do that, which means Spence will go on injured reserve.

    Spence said he was frustrated in a statement included in a release from the team about the move, but he said he still believes he will play in the NFL.

    “I beat a lot of odds,” said Spence. “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.”

    Spence’s efforts to make that happen will resume during an offseason that is shaping up to be an interesting one in Pittsburgh.

    IMO probably the best thing that could happen this season. Why rush him back for a lost season at 70% when we could have him near 100% next year.

    Given that the Steelers DL can't occupy blockers with any real consistancy, playing Spence was always a poor choice. He's too small to be continually pounding heads with oncoming OG's. Next season, after adding an actual NT, then bring him back to play.
