Default Steelers LB Sean Spence Will Begin Practicing Next Wednesday (!!!)

Report: #Steelers LB Sean Spence To Begin Practicing Next Wednesday

Starting next week, Pittsburgh Steelers second-year linebacker Sean Spence will be eligible to begin practicing with the team if deemed healthy enough to do so. According to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review in a Friday interview on the David Todd Show, Spence will indeed begin practicing next week and will be removed from the PUP list.

"He is going to practice Wednesday," said Kaboly of Spence. "They have three weeks to be able to activate him."



... Spence, however, predicated back in May that he would play this season.

"I know I'm going to beat the odds. ... I'm not even worried about that. The progress I have made, the doctors have said I already have beaten the odds."

-- Good work kid. He worked hard to come back from that devastating knee injury and he's going to begin practicing again when he was told that he'd never play another down in the NFL. Spectacular news.

Keep grindin' Sean. You'll get there.

We'll have to see if his ceiling has dropped because of the injury. I'm just glad he has the chance now. What a great story if he could make it all the way back.

Who isn't pulling for this guy?

That's great news, hopefully he can come back strong and give this team the boost they need. This could also solve our buck lb issues.

word haha. i'm psyched to hear this kid may see the football field again. nothing like a great feel-good story about some kid who beat the odds to play in the NFL. I don't care if it's not even for our team, if he makes an NFL roster and becomes a starter, I will be super happy for him. Preferably he'll become our starter though

there's been people watching him do drills in training camp that say he's still very quick on his feet. let's hope that translates to the field. he was impressing the coaching staff in his rookie season enough to the point they were even saying he could start. if he can pick up where he left off, who knows, he may be our new starting ILB. vince williams doesn't look ready, and kion wilson is trash. sly had 200 years to prove himself and stunk it up everywhere but special teams. spence has a legit shot at stepping up and taking it if he's finally healthy.

That's the thing though, right? Williams has been playing very well. Hell, he's even relaying the defensive calls right now to the rest of the guys on the field.

Something tells me Sean Spence - as remarkable as his story is - won't be played out in Pittsburgh.
