Ryan Shazier undergoes spinal stabilization surgery

A day after Ryan Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery shortly after returning to Pittsburgh his teammates emphasized they're not remotely worried about him as a linebacker.

The team offered no additional update on Shazier.

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery on Wednesday night, the team announced Thursday. Steele noted the neurologist had not seen Shazier's medical records and was only giving his professional opinion.

Although reports on Monday night indicated that Shazier suffered a spinal contusion, Alessi said the surgery means that's not the case. The pain was also evident as the National Football League player was placed on a stretcher and escorted to the hospital.

"It's not good", Alessi said. Shazier hit Malone low with his shoulder pads, then immediately reached for his back while his legs remained motionless.
