In the post-game press conference, Coach Tomlin was asked about Matt Spaeth’s status. In reply, Mike Tomlin said he had surgery preformed, but did not have an update at this time. This confirms the early reports that Spaeth would need surgery when he injured his foot in practice last week. This contradicts Gerry Dulac’s report that Spaeth simply had a linsfranc sprain.
#Steelers need a No 2 TE: Matt Spaeth has Lis Franc sprain, out 8-10 weeks.

Coach Tomlin said he would have an update on Spaeth tomorrow.
