Spillane, who has one interception and two sacks this season, was already enjoying rather than beginning inside linebacker Devin Bush, who tore his ACL towards the Browns in Week 6.

Pittsburgh’s linebacking corps was thinned even additional when fellow backup Ulysees Gilbert III went on IR with a again damage final month.
