Report: Ryan Shazier slowly improving after spinal surgery

Report: Ryan Shazier slowly improving after spinal surgery

Reports state the talented young linebacker is gradually improving after spinal surgery earlier this week. At this point, any good news is something to cling to when you are talking about Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier. After suffering a back injury in the Week 13 game vs. the Cincinnati Bengals, Shazier spent two days in a Cincinnati hospital before being flown back to Pittsburgh to be treated at UPMC. It was there the team reported Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery to help repair his injured back. Since then, there hasn’t been any official news from the...

Steelers given permission by the NFL to wear cleats honoring Ryan Shazier

Steelers given permission by the NFL to wear cleats honoring Ryan Shazier

The Pittsburgh Steelers players are honoring Ryan Shazier prior to the Week 14 game vs. the Ravens. The Pittsburgh Steelers, almost 20 players together, wanted to wear cleats to honor injured linebacker Ryan Shazier before the Sunday Night Football game vs. the Baltimore Ravens. However, the NFL usually sticks their nose up to players showing individuality like this. To most, this would be a no-brainer considering the severity of Shazier’s injury in Week 13, but, for once, the NFL is doing the right thing and allowing players to wear the “Shalieve” cleats. And the #Steelers do...

Steelers Injury Report: Two starters return to the practice field before Ravens game

Steelers Injury Report: Two starters return to the practice field before Ravens game

Despite facing a couple of major injuries, the Steelers otherwise have relatively good news on the injury front. The Pittsburgh Steelers and their fans have one main injury on their minds, and that would be the back injury to Ryan Shazier. Shazier, who was just flown back to Pittsburgh from Cincinnati, will obviously be out of the lineup this week and for the foreseeable future, but regarding his prognosis and/or status, no one outside of the organization is in the know. While it seems odd to talk about football within such a context as the previous paragraph, the team nevertheless is...

Mike Mitchell unleashes his thoughts on the NFL, suspensions, Roger Goodell and more

The Pittsburgh Steelers’ safety didn’t hold back when talking to the media regarding his thoughts on the state of the NFL. Just last week I wrote an article about Mike Mitchell telling it like it is in the Steelers’ locker room. Now, after the injury to Ryan Shazier and the suspension of JuJu Smith-Schuster, Mitchell had a lot to talk about again. Mitchell went on an epic locker room rant ranging from Roger Goodell to the NFL’s suspension policies to Matt Hasselbeck and more. Check out the video below, per Mark Kaboly of The Athletic: (Note: Some of the language Mitchell uses is...
The Steelers latest victory was one you couldn't enjoy in the moment

The Steelers latest victory was one you couldn't enjoy in the moment

The Steelers 23-20 victory over the Bengals on Monday night was one you really couldn't enjoy in the moment, as the injury to linebacker Ryan Shazier was on the minds of both fans and players, alike. When the Steelers are preparing to take on the Bengals, as a fan, you always fear for a serious injury. Why? Because this particular AFC North rivalry isn't of the sibling variety, meaning, the hate Pittsburgh and Cincinnati have developed for each other in recent years doesn't have mutual respect at the heart of it. At the heart of it, is Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, certainly the...

‘Football Is Secondary To Life’: Steelers Concerned For Their Brother, Not Their Teammate

The Pittsburgh Steelers released the news yesterday that starting inside linebacker Ryan Shazier, who suffered an injury attempting a routine tackle during a game on Monday, underwent spinal stabilization surgery.

Random Thoughts From a Black-and-Gold Mind: #SHALIEVE Edition

A more subdued edition of Random Thoughts in the wake of the Ryan Shazier injury. Random Thoughts From a Black-and-Gold is engineered to be an insightful, but snarky, and joyous column. With the Ryan Shazier injury, there is a black cloud of concern hanging over my black-and-gold mind, much like the scene in Independence Day when the alien ship covered the whole earth and left the likes of Jud Hirsch and Harvey Fierstein in complete darkness. With that being said, I'm offering up a less snarky and joyous Random Thoughts. Next week, we will return to the apologies and typical shenanigans....

Steelers vs. Ravens, Week 14: Three keys to a Black-and-gold victory

Ryan Shazier’s absence changes the essential character of the Steelers’ defense, placing the onus on Big Ben and the offense as never before. If the Pittsburgh Steelers are to make their seventh run to glory in Super Bowl 52, they’ll need to improvise substantially on the principal theme of their first 12 games of the regular season. The loss of star linebacker Ryan Shazier to a serious spinal injury and subsequent surgery is incalculable in much the same way that Cameron Heyward’s season-ending injury was in 2016. What’s different, though, is that, while we knew it was only a...

There was plenty on the line for both teams entering the Sunday Night Football matchup.

Lost amidst the chaos and confusion, there was plenty to like about the Steelers’ Week 13 win

The Pittsburgh Steelers may have barely beating the lowly Bengals, but there was plenty to like coming out of Week 13. After the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 23-20 win over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday Night Football, fans were left with this weird feeling in their stomach. Excited about the win, not sure what to think of the brutality which was displayed, and concerned about Ryan Shazier’s overall health. Nonetheless, as different outlets decide to cover different angles of this AFC North grudge match, it should be noted there was a lot of good to come out of this game. While some will...
