Steelers rookie linebacker Sean Spence suffered a season-ending knee injury Thursday in the preseason finale against the Panthers. Spence, a third-round draft pick from Miami (Fla.), was listed as the No. 2 inside linebacker on the depth chart. The Steelers acknowledged Spence suffered a significant knee injury but have not confirmed published reports that he tore two knee ligaments and dislocated his kneecap.
