Ryan Shazier shared an awesome update on his continued recovery from a spinal cord injury.  The Steelers linebacker posted a video on Instagram of himself doing deadlifts, under the close watchful eye of a doctor. 

This comes just a couple of days after the one-year anniversary of his spinal cord injury.

I’m not a doctor, but I would think that being able to do deadlifts shortly after he jogged for the first time since the injury is a good sign. 

Will he ever be healthy enough to return to the field?  Nobody knows the answer to that yet, but he’s definitely closer to a return than he was yesterday.
