Pittsburgh Steelers’ Ryan Shazier dances at his wedding 18 months after spinal injury

Shazier’s wedding was Friday in Pittsburgh, and one of his teammates, Olasunkanmi Adeniyi, captured a brief video of Shazier dancing with his new wife, Michelle Shazier.

Ryan Shazier has been recovering since a December 2017 injury that left him temporarily paralyzed. He’s had many milestones along the way, including last year’s walk across the stage to announce a Steelers draft pick.

Several Steelers were in attendance at the Shazier wedding, including James Conner, TJ Watt and Tyler Matakevich. Longtime Steelers fan Joe Manganiello was also there. 

The Steelers recently put Shazier on the physically unable to perform list, which means he’s still under contract but unable to play. Shazier’s ultimate goal is to return to the field.
