Steelers Will Have To Decide 2013 Fate Of LB Sean Spence Before Next Week
All eyes will be on Pittsburgh Steelers second-year linebacker Sean Spence this week as the team must make a decision as to his 2013 status before Week 10.
Spence, who injured a hand upon his return to the practice field in Week 7, must be placed on the 53 man roster, waived, or put on injured reserve due to the rules of the PUP list being as the three week window opened for him once he began practicing.
During his Tuesday press conference, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was not asked about Spence, so we will have to wait and see if any news comes out this week from the media as to whether or not he is back participating.
The Steelers could easily find a spot for Spence on the 53 man roster even if he might be a few weeks away still from being able to contribute as the team could waive linebacker Kion Wilson once again. Wilson, who was promoted back to the 53 man roster last week from the practice squad, was one of the seven inactives this past Sunday in the loss to the Oakland Raiders.
