Ryan Shazier Remains in the Huddle

Ryan Shazier is gearing up for his role with the Pittsburgh Steelers, as he will remain a very special part of the team. Shazier’s positive spirits and emotional journey has lifted the team’s spirits, and it really shows.

The Steelers announced today that Shazier’s contract will be tolled into the 2019 season and will remain on the roster until he is eventually placed on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform List.

Shazier continues to make very positive achievements on his road to recovery after his spinal injury in 2017.

“We will continue to support Ryan’s efforts to return to play,” general manager, Kevin Colbert, said. “Although he won’t be able to help us on the field in 2019, his leadership, insight and emotional support have always been very valuable to us, and we look forward to his contributions in our pursuit of a championship.”

With Shazier’s contract being tolled, this will enable him to receive his regular medical insurance and count the 2019 season towards his players’ pension.


Just a positive note, regarding a beloved Pittsburgh Steeler.
