What Ryan Shazier’s teammates said about him attending Steelers practice
Ryan Shazier attended Steelers practice in a wheelchair on Wednesday and shared a personal message about the visit on Instagram. It was the first practice Shazier has attended since suffering a spinal injury against the Cincinnati Bengals on Dec. 4.
Shazier’s father, Vernon Shazier, recently told WPXI that Shazier has feeling in his legs. Shazier has visited the Steelers’ facility before and attended the team’s final two regular season home games in a private suite.
After the game, several Steelers talked about what it was like to have Shazier at practice. Here are quotes from a few of Shazier’s teammates on the practice visit, Shazier scouting the Steelers’ opponents and more.
“His dad even told me today just keep bringing Ryan around because he likes it. We’re going to continue to do that because not only does he like it, we like it, too.”
