WATCH: Ryan Shazier stands, gets standing ovation at Penguins game

Ryan Shazier

This is simply awesome. Watch Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier receive a standing ovation at the Pittsburgh Penguins game. And the crowd goes particularly wild when Shazier manages to stand up himself.

This is an amazing display of some major Pittsburgh love.

Shazier suffered a devastating spinal injury in Week 13 which required spinal stabilization surgery.

The outpouring of support Shazier has received stems well beyond Pennsylvania. And, the fact that he has regained mobility in his legs and can walk with assistance at this time is tremendous.

We continue to wish Shazier our best as he journeys down his long path to full recovery.
