Ryan Shazier has regained feeling in his legs

Carolina Panthers v Pittsburgh Steelers

Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is slowly recovering from a devastating spinal injury that left him without feeling in his legs. "He's a long ways from where he was Monday night when he was laying on the field". He underwent spinal stabilization surgery three days after suffering the injury, and started rehabilitation a week after that.

Included in the article is the claim from WPXI that Shazier can now feel his legs.

Vernon also discussed the tense hours after Ryan's injury.

"He said, "Daddy, pray for me".

Ryan watched the Steelers' final two regular season home games against the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns from a suite at Heinz Field.

Vernon was asked by WPXI if he thinks his 25-year-old son, a two-time Pro Bowler and the Steelers' second-leading tackler and co-leader in interceptions despite missing the final four games, will again play football one day. He suffered a spine injury and was taken to the hospital in Cincinnati for examination.

Ryan Shazier has a long road ahead of him to return back to normal, so any accomplishment at this point is huge.

Shazier's father, Vernon Shazier, declined to comment on the specifics of his son's recovery but told WPXI, "He's making progress daily".

To make the situation just a little bit better for Shazier, his father, Vernon, has been there every step of the way to help his son and spread good thoughts for him on his Twitter feed.

"We agreed to keep his progress private until he's ready to share where he is at".

"I Shalieve", he added, using the term that's become a rallying cry in support of Ryan.
