Ryan Shazier shared the sidelines with his teammates once again.
A month ago Ryan Shazier suffered a serious spinal injury during a Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Just a few days ago Shazier’s father updated his son’s health, revealing that the Steelers linebacker regained feeling in his legs.
His father’s announcement signaled the first real update to Shazier’s condition since his injury.
On Wednesday afternoon, he posted a touching photo to Instagram, showing him back at practice.
I want to thank the Lord for the first downs that he has been allowing me to achieve. The touchdown is going to come in his timing, but today was a first down. I was finally able to make it to practice with my teammates. It’s great to be back for practices and meetings. Just to be able to feel a part of it means the world. So I’m working harder than I ever have to get back. Ive been making strides over the past month and continue to make progress. Taking it day-by-day, but I’m far from done. The Lord has not finished his work yet. I want to say thank you to the fans and Steelers Nation for the prayers. If it wasn’t for my family, friends and your prayers I wouldn’t be were I am now. They have lifted me and my family through this journey and I ask for you to continue praying for me, as I continue to work daily on improving my health. #Shalieve#Steelers#prayfor50
It’s great to see Shazier back on the sidelines, even if in a wheelchair.
Shazier will watch on as the Steelers look to avenge their regular-season loss to the Jaguars on Sunday afternoon in Pittsburgh.
