Steelers’ Shazier remains in hospital
Pittsburgh linebacker Ryan Shazier will remain in a Cincinnati hospital until at least Wednesday to undergo further testing on a spinal injury suffered in the first quarter of Monday night’s win over the Bengals.
Shazier left Paul Brown Stadium on a stretcher less than four minutes into the Steelers’ 23-20 victory over Cincinnati following a tackle that left the 25-year-old writhing on the turf, his legs motionless.
#SHALIEVE” While Shazier stayed in Cincinnati surrounded by family and his medical team, the Steelers are left trying to find a way forward without one of their key players.
Suspensions: Pittsburgh rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Cincinnati cornerback George Iloka have been suspended one game each by the NFL for violating league safety rules.
Smith-Schuster was flagged for unnecessary roughness and taunting after a blindside hit on Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh’s win.
