Steelers GM Kevin Colbert confirms Ryan Shazier won't play in 2018

Kevin Colbert has announced that LB Ryan Shazier will not suit up for the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2018.

The 25-year-old is undergoing outpatient therapy and has documented a portion of his recovery on social media. "We know that going into the season he won't play".

'He will be part of our team officially and really unofficially because he's still with us day-to-day as he rehabs.

Remember, this was a guy who was just able to begin walking again, which means there's zero reason why he needs to try and get himself back on the field in 2018.

Roethlisberger has two years remaining on his contract and will count $23.2 million against the salary cap in each of the 2018-19 seasons.

Shazier, a fourth-year veteran, was still a presence at the recent Pro Bowl, as other Steelers players honored their injured teammate with the linebacker pictured on their cleats during the game.

"Ryan works extremely hard at his rehab", said Colbert.

Neither the actress, nor Take Two Interactive Software have responded to requests for comment. The court upheld a ruling from a lower state appeals court, which dismissed her lawsuit.

On Monday Night Football in Week 12 of this past season, Shazier suffered a serious neck/back injury.

Three days later, he underwent spinal stabilization surgery; he spent almost two months in the hospital before being discharged to an outpatient therapy program. "I'm really trying to come back and still be a Pro Bowler".

"I've gotta get back, bro", Shazier said on Nix's podcast.

"I got to get it, you know what i'm saying?" "We will evaluate players we might not draft because we have to stack the draft board accordingly".

According to Colbert, there's never been a call made by the Steelers about dealing Bryant.

"They say like some progressions they see week to week, they see from me day to day".
