Ryan Shazier’s Presence Continues to Have an Impact

Even though he is still in the midst of rehabbing from his scary injury on December 4th, Ryan Shazier continues to make strides in all the right directions. Although his future as a player is still highly questionable, we have learned that Shazier has been a big part of keeping a high morale amongst players and has been a part of things pertaining to team personnel. In a statement from GM Kevin Colbert, he states:

“It’s been great for both of us. Ryan works extremely hard at his rehab. So, from a physical standpoint he’s continuing to work to overcome this injury but what we’ve enabled him to do is also be involved with the football part of it because we think it is important for him to still have that in front of him. He’ll come in here, he’s here on a daily basis. He does some physical workouts in the morning. He either sits in with the coaches or he’ll sit in with us. He’s learning some personnel stuff just to keep him involved with us and then he goes and does his rehab at a rehab facility. But the great thing about it is Ryan does as much as we do for him because the way he works at this and the attitude that he has shown and his rehabilitation, it’s really uplifting. Never once has he said, why me. And I know that is an uplifting gesture for us and those that deal with him because he shows us that everyone has problems but he’s going to work to overcome his as we should ours.”

We all anxiously await more positive news regarding Shazier’s health, but this recent news is great to hear. It’s important that he stays close to the team, as well as
be involved with day-to-day operations to maintain positivity and continue to rehab as successfully as he can.
