Ryan Shazier couldn’t be with his Steelers teammates in person while he recovers from spinal surgery, but he was there in spirit. The team made sure he could celebrate along with them over FaceTime following their win over the Ravens:

We can see from the video that Shazier was brought inside the Steelers locker room postgame to hear the team’s victory speech, bring it in (which he did from the bed), and give two claps and a Ric Flair with the team.
Shazier suffered the spinal injury in Week 13 on the first offensive possession of the game against the Bengals. Football fans and beyond have been anxiously awaiting more updates on Shazier’s condition, but it’s amazing to see him following the team from his bed and celebrating like he was on the field with his teammates.
Get well soon, Ryan.
