During a Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 4th, 2017, Shazier sustained what appeared to be a severe back injury after a head-on tackle.
The hit left Shazier seemingly unable to move his legs. After stabilization he was taken to the hospital and the next morning revealed that he had sustained a, spinal contusion.
On December 7, Shazier underwent spinal stabilization surgery to secure the injured section of spine and to aid in his recovery. The surgery ended his 2017 season.
He’s been on the road to recovery ever since.
Now he’s doing what he probably never thought possible, dancing at his very own wedding.

If Shazier can make this much progress in only a few years, who’s to say he won’t be able to play football again.
Where there’s a will, there’s a way.
