Yep. In fact, I’m fully expecting someone to die on the field in a national broadcast at some point. Not to sound morbid, but the game is that fast, that brutal.


I think its more of a testament to how durable and resilient the human body is. Even more so when it's kept in optimal condition. Just my two cents.

While still way too premature to speculate about his recovery, I think this is positive knews in that it seems and you medical experts can correct me if I'm wrong that the surgery sure has as much do to about controlling Shaz's movements in order to give him the best recovery possible, whatever the level of recovery may be.

While he remains hospitalized in Pittsburgh, Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier continues to show gradual improvement from his back injury, people familiar with his condition told ESPN.
Doctors are controlling and limiting his movement as they wait for the swelling and bruising in his back to subside, sources said.
It is premature to say whether Shazier will play football again, but the focus right now is not on his playing career but on trying to facilitate his recovery.


Wide receiver Antonio Brown is one of 15 Steelers players who will wear custom cleats featuring injured teammate Ryan Shazier during warm-ups for Sunday's game against the Ravens.

Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery Wednesday after suffering a severe back injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night. He spent Monday and Tuesday night at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center before being transferred to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility.
The Steelers have not updated his status since Thursday's surgery announcement, but his season is over and the team says it is concerned solely about his short- and long-term health.
Since he returned to Pittsburgh, Shazier has received visits from Steelers owner Art Rooney and multiple teammates, sources said. Shazier's family is also with him.
The injury has weighed heavily on the minds of his teammates, the organization and city. For Sunday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens, at least 15 players will be wearing cleats honoring Shazier and his expression, "Shalieve."

NFL Today Show provided a little bit of positive news

I'm paraphrasing but they said the Steelers expect him to walk again.....playing football again was unclear but they expect him to be IR'd

Someone put together a Shazier 6-minute movie which I'm linking. I'm not going to embed this video because the comments are worth reading:

Duke Johnson grew up 20 minutes away from Shazier in Florida.
Here's a longer look at his tribute.
