PITTSBURGH — Steelers inside linebacker Robert Spillane left the team’s game against Washington in the third quarter on Monday with a left knee injury and is questionable to return.
Spillane was injured after rushing the passer on a third-down play during the opening drive of the second half.
He immediately grabbed his left knee, but was able to walk off the field with a noticeable limp. Spillane was first examined on the sideline by Steelers athletic trainer John Norwig, before limping to the locker room.
The team announced that he is questionable to return. Spillane was replaced by Avery Williamson, who was acquired in a trade from the New York Jets after the injury to fellow inside linebacker Devin Bush.
