Report: Shazier has movement in legs, requires assistance in walking
While Ryan Shazier does have movement in his legs, his current progress toward walking again isn't quite as advanced as reported earlier Sunday morning.
A source close to Shazier told Michelle Tafoya of NBC that the Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker wants to clarify the Sunday morning report that he was engaged in a regular walking routine. Shazier does have movement in his legs but still requires assistance when trying to walk.
Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery on Dec. 6th after suffering a significant injury in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals two days earlier.
