Ryan Shazier has feeling in his legs, father says

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier has not appeared in a game since the team's Week 12 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on December 4, a game he left in the first quarter after suffering what was declared to be a spinal contusion. While details about his recovery have not been made public, Shazier's father Vernon mentioned about the progress in a recent interview.

Vernon Shazier said he won't offer specifics on Ryan's condition "until [Ryan is] ready to share where he's at" but did note that his son is "making progress daily".

Shazier's teammates, though, have insisted that they care far less about seeing him back on the field than simply back on his legs, walking. However, Pittsburgh got welcome news about a player with a much more concerning issue when Ryan Shazier's father revealed that the injured linebacker has regained feeling in his legs.

WPXI reported the news after their anchor Lisa Sylvester traveled to Florida to check up on the Steeler.

Shazier, 25, has feelings in his legs again. He underwent spinal-stabilization surgery following which doctors raised concerns over Shazier's future in the National Football League. "He's a long ways from where he was, on that Monday night when he was laying on the field".

Vernon Shazier, who is an National Football League chaplain, told WPXI that faith is helping the family through the crisis.

He asked Vernon, a Pastor, to "pray for me", according to the report. "When he went down, all of us went down with him".

Shazier and his father have come a long way from that phone call.

"Do you think he'll play again?" "I Shalieve. I Shalieve", Vernon said.
