Shazier visited the Steelers' practice facility two days before Christmas and participated in team meetings before the team flew to Houston for a Christmas Day game. But Wednesday was the first time he got to see his teammates prepare for a game without him. "It meant everything in the world," said running back Le'Veon Bell
12/21/17 - LB Ryan Shazier of the Pittsburgh Steelers is making progress as he copes with a severe spinal injury, according to his father, but there's a long road ahead in his bid for recovery. "We have seen some improvement that is encouraging," Vernon Shazier told ESPN in an interview. "We're taking it one day at a time. We do not know what tomorrow holds. It's a (daily) journey we don't know. But I know God is getting the message." Ryan Shazier was injured while making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone with 11:14 remaining in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 win on Dec. 4. Shazier hit Malone low with his shoulder pads, then immediately reached for his back while his legs remained motionless. The two-time Pro Bowl selection was placed on a backboard and carted off the field before being transported to a Cincinnati area hospital. He underwent spinal stabilization surgery two days later and remained in a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility for rehabilitation.

"However, even off the field Ryan will continue to be one of our team leaders. We know his spirit and positive outlook will help him to continue in his recovery, as well as serve as an inspiration to our team." A Pro Bowl selection last season, Shazier was injured while making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone with 11:14 remaining in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 win on Dec. 4. Shazier hit Malone low with his shoulder pads, then immediately reached for his back while his legs remained motionless.

A Pro Bowl selection last season, the 25-year-old Shazier spent Monday and Tuesday night at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center before being transferred to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility. Since he returned to Pittsburgh, Shazier has received visits from Steelers owner Art Rooney and many of his teammates.
