Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - BASEBALL REPORT -

PITTS­BURGH >> The Steel­ers have placed line­backer Ryan Shazier on in­jured re­serve for the 2018 sea­son to give him more time to re­cover from spinal sta­bi­liza­tion surgery.

The team made the move on Wed­nes­day, which will open up a ros­ter spot for the AFC North cham­pi­ons as they be­gin or­ga­nized team ac­tiv­i­ties later this month.

Steel­ers gen­eral man­ager Kevin Col­bert ruled Shazier out for 2018 ear­lier this year. Shazier, in­jured in a game at Cincin­nati last De­cem­ber, walked pub­licly for the first time in nearly five months when he strode onto the stage to an­nounce Pitts­burgh’s first-round pick in last week’s NFL draft. The 25-year-old Shazier has re­mained ac­tive in the or­ga­ni­za­tion dur­ing his re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion.
