Pittsburgh Steelers LB Ryan Shazier was carted off the field on Monday Night Football and taken to the hospital after suffering from some sort of spine injury.
The injury appears to come after Shazier leads with his head on a tackle and it’s apparent that he does some damage with the impact. He doesn’t seem to be moving his lower body at all, not a good sign.

UPDATE: #50 Ryan Shazier has been taken to the hospital for further evaluation on his back.
He will not return to tonight’s game & there will be no further updates at this time.

Hopefully he is ok, you never like to see this happen, no matter who it is or what team they play for. These guys risk it all every time they step onto the field. At any given moment, your life can change in the blink of an eye. It’s a violent game. Thoughts and prayers to Shazier. Some Patriots players have already showed their support and are watching:
Prayers for shazier 🙏🏽
