Ryan Shazier’s condition continues to improve according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport. After suffering a scary spinal contusion injury on Monday Night Football, initial fears have been soothed.
Wednesday, the Steelers announced Shazier has been transferred from a hospital in Cincinnati hospital to a University of Pittsburgh Medical Center facility. There, Shazier will continue to undergo further testing and treatment but optimism has grown from signs of his progress.
He will continue tests and evaluations before his medical team provides any further updates on his condition,” the Steelers said in a statement. “We again want to thank the doctors and staff at UC Health’s University of Cincinnati Medical Center for the excellent care Ryan received while at that facility.
Shazier also tweeted out a message to Tuesday thanking everyone for their prayers.
Thank you for the prayers. Your support is uplifting to me and my family. #SHALIEVE
