Report: Ryan Shazier Walking as Rehab Progresses, 'Making Incredible Progress'

"He's making incredible progress", said one source familiar with Shazier's recovery, per Schefter. Shazier confirmed Tafoya's report via Twitter that walking remains a struggle for him. He was transferred to UPMC, where he underwent spinal stabilization surgery.

Earlier today on Super Bowl Sunday, it was widely reported that Pittsburgh Steelers star linebacker Ryan Shazier had regained enough strength and was able to walk again just two months after his spinal injury. Steelers teammates and coaches have been moved by Shazier's vigorous rehab.

Shazier was photographed standing a few times on Thursday and once it included him being alongside Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Pittsburgh's Ryan Shazier has reportedly regained movement in his legs and has been discharged from his rehabilitation center.

Shazier was initially hospitalized in Cincinnati after suffering a spinal injury in Pittsburgh's game against the Bengals on December 4. He is also seen leaving the hospital in a wheelchair.

Shazier suffered a career-threatening spine injury in the team's Week 13 game, and was finally released from the hospital Thursday.

Last offseason, the Steelers picked up Shazier's fifth-year option, which is guaranteed for injury at around $8.7 million.
