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.

Georges St-Pierre 'not sure' if he'll defend UFC middleweight title
At the time, St-Pierre (26-2-0) said his contract called for him to fight interim champion Robert (The Reaper) Whittaker next. MMA journalist Damon Martin later confirmed that GSP would relinquish the belt he won from Michael Bisping at UFC 217.

It's unclear what has happened since Tuesday, only that Shazier's condition has not improved in the way the team had hoped. He returned to Pittsburgh from Cincinnati and continues to be treated at a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility.

Initially, the Steelers said that Shazier would not require surgery, and an unidentified team source said that his situation "was better than what it could have been".

Dynamic lumbar spine stabilization is "a surgical technique that stabilizes the spine with flexible materials to allow for more mobility in the spine than traditional spinal fusion surgery", according to the UPMC website.
