• WATCH: Injured Shazier celebrates Steelers' win in hospital


    Ryan Shazier has been hospitalized for nearly a week after a hit left him with a spine injury in a Monday night game against the Bengals.

    The team and Steeler Nation have rallied around the young star linebacker, but other than a tweet and social media comments from family members, he hasn't made any public comments since he was carted off the field in Cincinnati.

    That changed Sunday night.


    After the Steelers clinched an AFC North title in a thrilling 39-38 victory over the rival Baltimore Ravens, Shazier FaceTimed with his teammates congratulating them on the victory. That moment was caught in a series of social media posts.

    Teammates said Shazier has been in good spirits despite the injury, and honored him in a number of ways before and during the game.

    It looks like he was in even better spirits after it.
