Ryan Shazier has regained feeling in his legs

Ryan Shazier has regained feeling in his legs

"Yes, yes I do", Shazier said, invoking the word that has become popular since Ryan Shazier's injury. "I Shalieve". I can't feel my legs, ' "Vernon told WPXI's Lisa Sylvester".

Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is making progress. "He's a long ways from the night when he was laying on the field".

Shazier's father expressed hope that his son would soon work with the team again.

Shazier's father, Vernon, declined to offer specifics on his son's current condition but did recall the moments after he suffered the spinal injury during a December 4 Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals. After spending a couple days in Cincinnati immediately following the injury, Ryan Shazier was transported back to Pittsburgh where he underwent a spinal stabilization procedure.

Getting him back on the field is probably the last thing the Steelers are anxious about; they're probably most concerned with making sure he regains his health.

One tourist killed, 12 injured in hot-air balloon crash in Egypt
The deadliest balloon crash in history occurred in February 2013 in Luxor, when 19 people were killed. Hot air balloon companies in Luxor offer the tours usually starting at sunrise.

Vernon Shazier got emotional when recalling that moment last month when his son called him after the injury.

"He said, 'Daddy, pray for me".

"We agreed to keep his progress private until he's ready to share where he is at". "I Shalieve. I Shalieve". Shazier has subsequently visited the team's practice facility in a wheelchair, but the Steelers and his family have made few details public about the progress of his recovery.

To make the situation just a little bit better for Shazier, his father, Vernon, has been there every step of the way to help his son and spread good thoughts for him on his Twitter feed.
