  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Signs one-year tender with Steelers

    Spillane signed his one-year, $2.43 million tender with the Steelers on Friday, Joe Rutter of TribLIVE reports.

    Spillane appeared in 14 games (four starts) last season and totaled 56 tackles (29 solo), including two for loss. The fifth-year linebacker figures to provide depth behind Devin Bush and Myles Jack again in 2022, but his role may increase slightly with the departure of Joe Schobert.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Gets tender from Pittsburgh

    Spillane received a right of first refusal tender from the Steelers on Monday, Brooke Pryor of ESPN.com reports.

    Spillane has earned over 300 defensive snaps in each of the last two seasons with the Steelers, and he managed a career-best 56 tackles in 2021. He'll currently earn around $2.4 million in 2022, though he could sign for more elsewhere with the Steelers then having the option to match the terms. If Spillane remains in Pittsburgh, he could have a significant role in 2022, particularly if the team decides to part ways with Joe Schobert to free additional cap space.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Not on injury report

    Spillane (knee) wasn't listed on the injury report for Wednesday's practice session, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Coach Mike Tomlin revealed Tuesday that Spillane is dealing with a knee injury, but the 26-year-old didn't have any limitations during Wednesday's practice session. It appears as though he'll be available for Sunday's wild-card matchup against Kansas City.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Dealing with knee injury

    Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that Spillane is dealing with a knee injury, Dale Lolley of DKPittsburghSports.com reports.

    Spillane recorded five tackles (four solo) across 47 defensive snaps in Week 18, but he apparently picked up an ankle injury during the contest. His practice status Wednesday -- and throughout the week -- will likely give a good indication as to whether he will be available for the wild-card matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Returns to full practice

    Spillane (knee) was a full practice participant Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Spillane has been sidelined for each of Pittsburgh's last two games, but he should be in line for a Week 15 return against Tennessee. Prior to the injury, Spillane had played primarily on special teams while logging 27 total tackles across 10 contests.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Ruled out for Thursday

    Spillane (knee) will not play Thursday against the Vikings.

    Spillane was able to clear COVID protocols in time for Thursday, but the knee injury he suffered against Cincinnati in Week 12 will still keep him out. The four-year vet's absence will likely lead to extra opportunity for 2021 fourth-round selection Buddy Johnson.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Back from COVID list

    Spillane (knee) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Placed on COVID list

    Spillane (knee) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports.

    Spillane has already been dealing with a knee injury, and he now finds himself in COVID-19 protocols as well. The confluence of maladies will sideline him against Baltimore in Week 13, and Spillane will be fighting an uphill battle to get back on the field next Thursday against Minnesota.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Will not return

    Spillane (knee) will not return Sunday against the Bengals, Burt Lauten reports.

    Spillane's absence will be a blow to the Steelers' linebacker unit. Marcus Allen or Ulysees Gilbert will likely pick up the few snaps that Spillane will miss.

  • Steelers' Robert Spillane: Practices fully Wednesday

    Spillane (ankle) was able to practice fully for the Steelers on Wednesday, Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Spillane suffered an ankle injury in Monday's win over the Bears, and coach Mike Tomlin stated the injury isn't considered serious. After recording a full practice Wednesday, Spillane should be able to suit up Sunday against the Lions. If the linebacker suffers any setbacks before Week 10, expect Buddy Johnson to see an increased role behind Joe Schobert.
