Ryan Shazier Suffers Spinal Contusion

Ryan Shazier avoided what could have been a life-altering injury Monday night. The 25-year-old Steelers linebacker suffered a spinal contusion and some swelling. He was hospitalized following a collision with Bengals receiver Josh Malone. Shazier initially had no feeling in his lower body. The injury is reportedly similar to one former Steelers quarterback Tommy Maddox suffered in 2002. Maddox was eventually able to make a full recovery once the swelling went down.
