    Re: Ryan Shazier returns to Pittsburgh

    Well this doesn't look good. Honestly this is beyond football, I just hope he can live a normal life. Even if he's able to play again, if he's at a higher risk of injury for getting paralyzed, I'd rather him retire for his own safety.

    Just got off phone w neurologist Dr Anthony Alessi, who consults w NFLPA, asked him what he makes of Shazier's spinal stabilization surgery. "It's not good...We're not going to see him this season. He may not play football again."

    Alessi says surgery is needed when the "bones around his spinal cord are dislocated. This is a more severe injury (than a contusion.)"

    "This is a much more severe situation on our hands than we thought."

    Yeah I can't see how this doesn't spell the end of his NFL career. I just hope he regains good function of his legs so he can lead a relatively normal life.

    My sentiments are right along with everyone else's. Here's hoping he can walk against and have a normal life. And, if it isn't too soon, here's hoping this becomes a lesson to everyone playing football. Keep your head up when you hit.

    Awful. prayers for him that he has a normal life


    Also wish people wouldn't have said "oh he suffered the same injury as Maddox and Maddox missed 1 game"
    Also yet another year where at least one key piece misses the postseason.

    We all need to pray that Ryan can just somehow get back to normal life and be fully functional. Football is strictly an afterthought when we're talking about someone's life and how it will affect him and his family.

    Let's hope for the best for him going forward.

    I read an article that even with someone in the great shape as Ryan, at best it would still be 6 weeks to 3 months rehab. Hopefully we'll be seeing him walking on our sidelines rooting our guys on in the playoffs.....please GOD !

    Re: Ryan Shazier returns to Pittsburgh

    Really sad to possibly see such a promising career ended so shortly. Shazier was having a hell of a season. He's the heart and soul of this defense. Hate to say it, but him being out may be the deciding factor on how far this team goes. Gronk is giving me nightmares.
