Steelers place LB Shazier on injured reserve

(TSX / STATS) -- The Pittsburgh Steelers placed linebacker Ryan Shazier on injured reserve Tuesday, nearly one week after he underwent spinal stabilization surgery.

"Unfortunately Ryan will not be able to contribute on the field during the remainder of this season," Steelers president Art Rooney II said in a statement. "However, even off the field Ryan will continue to be one of our team leaders. We know his spirit and positive outlook will help him to continue in his recovery, as well as serve as an inspiration to our team."

A Pro Bowl selection last season, Shazier was injured while making a tackle on Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Josh Malone with 11:14 remaining in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 win on Dec. 4. Shazier hit Malone low with his shoulder pads, then immediately reached for his back while his legs remained motionless.
