Ryan Shazier's recovery so far has been nothing short incredible.
Just a year after suffering a scary spinal injury that put his ability to even walk in question, Shazier is reportedly jogging unassisted and has posted video of himself doing dead lifts.

It goes without saying that a return to football after an injury like that would be near miraculous, but after what he's already accomplished when some thought he'd never even walk again, I absolutely would not bet against him.
