Steelers outside linebacker Ryan Shazier was back on a football field over the weekend.
And though he’s far from being able to play again [url=http://www.vikingscheapstore.com/kyle-rudolph-jersey-cheap]Kyle Rudolph Jersey[/url] , he’s staying connected to the game he vows to return to.
Via聽Joe Rutter of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Shazier helped with a youth football camp, encouraging the crowd of 300 kids along with teammate Jesse James.
Shazier [url=http://www.chiefscheapstore.com/anthony-sherman-jersey-cheap]Anthony Sherman Jersey[/url] , who suffered a spinal injury last December, walked around the field with the assistance of canes. After walking to the podium to announce a Steelers pick at the draft, it’s a pair of high-profile appearances for a player who lost feeling in his legs from the hit in a game against the Bengals. He’s not going to play this season but hopes to return.
“It helps me out [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/george-kittle-jersey-cheap]George Kittle Jersey[/url] , but it helps the people on the outside looking in, also,” Shazier said in a video released by the Steelers. “They’re doing all this for me and they barely know who I am. It really means a lot for me [url=http://www.buccaneerscheapstore.com/josh-robinson-jersey-cheap]Josh Robinson Jersey[/url] , so when I get a chance to show people I’m doing better and come out here and help them and get the responses I’ve been getting, it makes me want to go even harder every day.”
Having a player suffer such an injury during a game could have been the NFL’s worst nightmare. But Shazier has become an inspirational figure, largely through his own positive attitude and determination to walk again.
Running back Orleans Darkwa remains a free agent after leading the Giants rushing last season and his attempt to find a job for the 2018 season could get a boost thanks to some positive medical news.
Darkwa had surgery in May to remove a plate in his leg and announced on Twitter that he has been medically cleared to resume football work. Darkwa had the plate inserted after fracturing his leg in 2016.
Darkwa ran 171 times for 751 yards and five touchdowns for the Giants last year [url=http://www.seahawkscheapstore.com/russell-wilson-jersey-cheap]Russell Wilson Jersey[/url] , but a return to the team would seem to be out of the cards with Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Stewart joining the backfield this offseason.
Other than a visit with the Patriots early in free agency, the market was quiet for Darkwa before his operation. We’ll see if things heat up before training camp as a result of the news about his leg.
