Tuesday marked the one-year anniversary of the day that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier suffered a severe spinal injury.
And a year later, Shazier hasn’t stopped on his long path to recovery.
On Thursday, Shazier shared a video on his Instagram of his impressive deadlift workout, which shows how his condition is continuing to improve. It is certainly inspiring to see:

Shazier, who underwent spinal stabilization surgery following the injury, still hopes to play in the NFL again. He has missed the entire 2018 season as he continues to recover.
If Shazier returns to the NFL, it certainly would be an incredible comeback story. And as his most recent video shows, he clearly is working hard to try to make that happen.
