Steelers' Ryan Shazier: Contract tolled into 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (spine) had his contract tolled for the 2019 season on Tuesday, Bob Labriola of the team's official site reports.

Tolling Shazier's contract means that he will remain on the Steelers' roster for 2019 and eventually land on the reserve/PUP list. He will also accrue seasons towards his NFL players' pension. The Steelers continue to support Shazier as he works to eventually gain medical clearance and resume his NFL career, though there's no chance the 26-year-old linebacker sees the field before 2020 at the earliest.

Shazier (spine) won't play in 2019 despite hoping to resume his playing career, Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Shazier is scheduled to become a free agent in March but the Steelers have said they will keep the linebacker with the organization for the upcoming season. Though the team wants to keep him there is no chance the linebacker sees the field in 2019. Shazier is continuing to seek medical clearance but he won't be able to play until 2020 at the earliest.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: Hopes to resume playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (spine) still wants to resume his NFL playing career, assuming he's medically cleared, TribLIVE.com reports.

Shazier began jogging in December for the first time since suffering the spinal injury in early December 2017. The Steelers kept the 26-year-old under contract for 2018 despite knowing he would not see the field, and he is now set to become a free agent once the new league year begins. Owner Art Rooney II indicated the team would like to re-sign Shazier, though how exactly they would do so remains unclear given the unique injury situation.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: Jogging for first time since injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (spine) has resumed jogging for the first time since he suffered a serious spinal injury, Stephen Nesbitt of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Shazier initially sustained a serious spinal injury in December of 2017, and a year later has managed to jog for the first time since his surgery. The two-time Pro Bowler appears to be making substantial progress in his recovery, considering that doctors initially told Shazier there was less than a 20 percent chance he'd walk again, and he has not lost hope regarding an eventual return to the field. Shazier officially remains on the Steelers' PUP list.

Steelers' Ryan Shazier: Placed on reserve/PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shazier (spine) has officially been placed on the reserve/PUP list, Teresa Varley of the Steelers official website reports.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert announced months ago that Shazier wouldn't play during the 2018 season, so this is merely confirmation of that previous report. Shazier will continue to go through his rehabilitation with the organization's medical staff after a severe spinal injury cut his 2017 campaign short. He seemingly hopes to eventually return to the field.
