We’re not sure when Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier will return to the field. Following the serious spine injury he suffered last season, the Pro Bowler has been ruled out for the entire 2018 campaign.
As his Steelers started training camp this week in Latrobe, Shazier was seen out on the field with the team’s linebackers. Check out this awesome video.

As you can tell, Shazier is still walking with a pretty heavy limp. It’s a clear indication that he has a lot more to overcome before even thinking about returning.
Even then, it’s awesome to see the former first-round pick out there and supporting his teammates. Based on what we saw Friday, it has to be expected that Shazier will be a pretty common figure around the Steelers this season.
That in and of itself has to be music to the ears of his teammates.
