The Pittsburgh Steelers certainly could use blocking tight end Matt Spaeth back in the lineup and according to Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, the veteran hasn't wore a boot on his previously injured foot for some time now. Spaeth, who suffered a Lisfranc injury during training camp, is eligible to return to practice right now, but has yet to do so. Being as he was placed on the injured reserve list with the designated to return tag at the start of the season, he cant be placed back on the active roster until after week eight. So, will Spaeth be ready for the week nine game against the New England Patriots? Being as he has yet to practice, that seems unlikely. When asked if he knew when he might return, Spaeth offered up no clues as it appears as though he's been instructed not to talk about it. "Yeah, I can’t tell you," Spaeth said, according to the Kaboly report. Just when it looked as though David Johnson was starting to play well as the Steelers second tight end, he suffered a dislocated wrist in the win over the New York Jets and was lost for the season. The Steelers then signed free agent Richard Gordon with the hopes he might could help, but he has been hampered by a great toe injury that he suffered during his very first practice with the team. As a result, he didn't even play Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens as he was listed as one of the seven inactives. The Steelers used tackle Mike Adams as a second tight end quite a bit against the Ravens and will likely continue to do so until Spaeth returns. Hopefully that return is soon. "I am working hard every day and doing what I can do to get back," Spaeth said. Steelers TE Matt Spaeth Offers No Clues As To When He Might Return is a post from: Steelers Depot
