    Sean Spence returning to Steelers workouts

    Steelers 2012 draft pick Sean Spence has yet to play in an NFL regular-season game after a major knee injury forced him to miss his rookie year and the rehab from it along with a broken finger cost him his second season. But he has a clean bill of health according to the official team website and will participate in full workouts when OTAs begin in May. "He's healthy and working," coach Mike Tomlin said according to the official team website. "... I don't think that we'll start from scratch. These haven't been empty days for him since he's been here with the rehabilitation process and what he's been able to do in terms of learning our system of football. I'm not going to assume that he's starting from ground zero."

Colbert quickly added that it would be naive of the team to think Spence is done with his rehab and ready for football. Spence suffered a torn ACL, LCL and a dislocated kneecap in a gruesome moment during a preseason game in 2012. He has yet to play in an NFL game.
