Steelers Place Ryan Shazier On Physically Unable To Perform List

By Brandon J. Wallace

PITTSBURGH, PA – The Pittsburgh Steelers have officially placed injured linebacker Ryan Shazier on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) List for the second straight year. This will not count against the team’s current 90-man roster.

Although this already ends Shazier’s 2019 season, the team is still going to pay the fifth-year linebacker out of Ohio State nearly $500K this year per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network:

Shazier originally injured his spine making a tackle against the Cincinnati Bengals back in December of 2017. He still wishes to play football again someday and will continue rehab in Pittsburgh.

“I try to tell people at the end of the day, just because I got hurt, doesn’t mean I lost the love of the game of football. I love football so much. I just care about the game. I really feel like the game has taken me places I never expected to go. I am putting everything into it. I feel like I was the best linebacker in the league. I don’t want to leave that as my legacy. I feel like I have so much to show.” – Ryan Shazier
