Steelers coach Mike Tomlin spoke about 2012 third round choice, linebacker Sean Spencer and his progress coming back from a serious knee injury.
Once thought to be career ending, Spence is on schedule Tomlin said, though there are some that aren’t so optimistic.
As the Steelers rebuild their linebacker corps, Spence would make a welcome addition, but the varying opinions leaves room for doubt, but don’t tell that to Tomlin.
"All the rehab is going to according to plan," Tomlin said, via Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "No news there. I did hear the opinion regarding Spence. My opinion differs. I think he'll have a full recovery. But now you have two opinions, neither of which are expert medical opinions, so do with it what you wish."
Tomlin was speaking about linebackers coach Keith Butler who stated his opinion that didn’t paint a rosy picture:
“It will be miraculous if he does come back,” Butler said last Saturday when he met with reporters. “It will be miraculous if he comes back next year. We are going to take a chance on him and see if he can come back. To me, he is worth every bit of that.”
