The catch was Spaeth's first of the season and was, in fact, his first target of the season as well. He also scored a 2-point conversion after a botched hold by punter Brad Wing.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports Steelers TE Matt Spaeth (foot surgery) is a candidate for injured reserve/designated to return.

Spaeth is out 8-10 weeks after undergoing Lisfranc surgery. The Steelers' decision on Spaeth will likely depend on how confident they are about Heath Miller's (ACL) health. Spaeth is not a difference-making talent. The Steelers might be best off saving their IR/designated to return slot.
