The Pittsburgh Steelers are starting to wind down their Sunday practice and it appears as though first-round draft pick Ryan Shazier may have suffered some sort of right knee injury.
Shazier limped off of the field after tackling running back Le’Veon Bell during a red zone drill and was being attended to by the trainers on the side. He currently has his knee wrapped with ice and reports state that the injury doesn’t appear to be serious.
Shazier has been penciled in to be the starter at inside linebacker alongside Lawrence Timmons this year. He’s had a solid off-season and start of training camp so far.
Head coach Mike Tomlin will likely update Shazier’s status following practice.
Update: After practice Tomlin called Shazier’s injury a “little boo-boo”.
