Steelers LB Ryan Shazier completes a box jump 16 months after suffering a severe neck injury (Video)

Ryan Shazier is still working hard every day to comeback from a very serious neck injury. Today he completed a box jump and it was pretty impressive.

This is the coolest thing you will see today. Ryan Shazier was drafted by the Steelers in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He played college football at Ohio State. 16 months after suffering a very scary injury to his neck, the former Steelers leading tackler is still working at making a comeback.

During a Monday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals on December 4, 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 the spine and to aid in his recovery. This is pretty amazing! Keep it up Shazier
