Ryan Shazier returns to Steelers practice in wheelchair, brings 'joy to everybody'”

I want to say thank you to the fans and Steelers Nation for the prayers. "The Lord has not finished his work yet".

"I want to thank the Lord for the first downs that he has been allowing me to achieve", he wrote. "The touchdown is going to come in his timing, but today was a first down". The 25-year-old says he is "working harder than ever" to get back. I was finally able to make it to practice with my teammates.

"It's great to be back for practices and meetings", Shazier posted on Instagram after his visit.

Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery on December 7 at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center hospital, and a report by WPXI-Pittsburgh last week stated that he has recently regained feeling in his legs since the accident.

Shazier experienced spinal adjustment surgery on December 7 at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center doctor's facility, and a report by WPXI-Pittsburgh a week ago expressed that he has as of late recaptured feeling in his legs since the mischance.

"He's making progress daily", said Vernon Shazier.

Vernon Shazier, a Florida minister, said that wasn't the case when he first received a call from his son soon after the injury occurred on December 5. "He's a long ways from where he was on that Monday night when he was laying on that field".

A first-round pick by the Steelers in 2015, Shazier started all 12 games he appeared in this season.

Fans and friends rallied around Shazier using the hashtag "Shalieve" after his injury. After a win, Shazier FaceTimed the team from the hospital and sent the locker room into a frenzy.

Shazier didn't give details on his physical status, but the fact that he's still in a wheelchair gives an indication of how serious his injury was and how far he still has to go.
