As you likely know, Sean Spence suffered an injury to his right knee during Thursday night’s loss to the Eagles. After the game, Coach Tomlin described it as a PCL, but didn’t have any further information. According to Jerry Dulac of the Post Gazette, Spence sprained his PCL, and it will not require surgery.
Sean Spence, who sprained PCL in right knee vs Eagles, does not need surgery and should be OK

As I mentioned the other night, most PCL injuries do not require surgery. Thankfully for Spence, this appears to be minor. Goodness knows the kid has overcome enough in his short NFL career. Hopefully he makes a quick recovery. Assuming it is a low grade sprain, his recovery time should be relatively short.
