Ryan Shazier Visits Teammates

Ryan Shazier: A Ray Of Sunshine

Ryan Shazier visited the Pittsburgh Steelers practice facility for the first time since injuring his spine during a game against the Cincinnati Bengals December 4th.

The veteran linebacker, who is in a wheelchair after undergoing spinal surgery, reportedly had some feeling return to his legs.

He called his visit to the facility “a first down” in his recovery. Shazier says he has been “making strides” over the past month but added he is “far from done.”

Team officials say Shazier has been watching game film and helping out with the scouting report on the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Steelers host the Jaguars on Sunday with the winner advancing to the AFC title game.
