Sean Spence injury: Steelers LB suffers severe damage to left knee

NFL

A promising 2012 draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers is quickly being torn asunder by injury. Just one week after losing first-round OG David DeCastro to a severe right knee injury (although DeCastro might be able to return late in the season), the Steelers apparently have also lost third-round LB Sean Spence to an even more devastating knee injury.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Spence is believed to have a torn ACL, a torn LCL (lateral collateral ligament) and a dislocated knee cap.

Spence was carted off the field with his leg in an air cast after his cleat appeared to get caught in the turf while he was pursuing Carolina Panthers quarterback Jimmy Clausen.

Here’s a screenshot of the injury:

Spence’s journey to becoming the next great Steelers linebacker will have to wait a year. He was listed as Lawrence Timmons’ backup on Pittsburgh’s official depth chart.

Last year (2012) we have been witnessed a number injuries in Pittsburgh Steelers (professional football team) which forced the team to give poor performances during last sessions that results for a huge fall in ranking and position. Here we notice how the legend players of professional football team get injured during every regular interval that ultimately affects the team performance.

Even as a Cleveland fan, that just hurts to watch.  Hope, for his sake, that he recovers well.

 @LeilaniHernandez You're an idiot.  To be happy when someone who did nothing to you gets hurt is probably one of the most pathetic things possible.  I suppose you're a fan of one of their rivals.  I guess it's just something for a nobody like you to do when you're wasting away.

 @LeilaniHernandez There's a big difference between not caring about idiots like you and being happy when someone has a significant injury that can ruin a career.  You may not have a career, so that could be difficult for you to comprehend.  This might all be too complex for you to figure out.
