This didn’t look good at all.
Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier just exited his team’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals after a frightening hit.
Shazier came up to deliver a hit on the Bengals’ Josh Malone and immediately grabbed his back after he hit the turf. It appeared Shazier might have lost feeling in his legs.
Here’s the clip of the play.
