Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier continues to rehab from a spinal injury suffered against the Cincinnati Bengals in late November. Shazier stood, albeit with assistance, Tuesday night at the Penguins game as the PPG Paints Arena crowd roared during a video board tribute.
Wednesday, Steelers president Art Rooney II confirmed Shazier will have a role with the team—in whatever fashion—when the team takes the field next season.
One of the best & most inspiring notes to come from Art Rooney IIs media sessions today was that he confirmed @RyanShazier will have a role in some form or fashion with the #Steelers this upcoming season.— Burt Lauten (@SteelersPRBurt) February 8, 2018
Shazier may never play another football snap again, but it's clear the Steelers will stand by their fallen teammate.
