While doctors are waiting for the swelling and bruising in his back to subside, they are controlling and limiting his movements, according to ESPN.
Shazier had spinal stabilization surgery Wednesday night after returning to Pittsburgh.
He was carted off the field in Monday’s night game and was taken to the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.
Shazier went in to make a tackle, striking Cincinnati receiver Josh Malone with the crown of his helmet and immediately appeared to go limp as he fell to the ground face-down.
