Report: Ryan Shazier regains movement in legs, making ‘incredible progress’

Ryan Shazier

Ryan Shazier has made tremendous progress since suffering a spinal injury in early December, and the Pittsburgh Steelers has reportedly regained movement in his legs.

Sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Shazier has been taking part in a regular walking routine and is “making incredible progress.” The next three to six months will be critical in determining how much more mobility he can gain, but all signs have been positive for the 25-year-old over the past two months.

Shazier began inpatient rehabilitation therapy on Dec. 6, which was two days after he suffered a spinal injury while making a routine tackle against the Cincinnati Bengals. He was released from the rehab facility on Thursday.

Shazier was able to attend one of the Steelers’ practices last month, which was a good sign. His father has also provided some encouraging updates about the 25-year-old’s motor skills, so hopefully the progress keeps coming.
