Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier was carted off the field on Monday Night Football against the Cincinnati Bengals. He reportedly suffered a spinal contusion.

The Steelers have not released an official diagnosis on his injury. However, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ed Bouchette, Shazier suffered a spinal contusion.

Shazier was transported to University of Cincinnati Medical Center, where he’s expected to stay overnight. Steelers VP/GM Kevin Colbert, along with Head Coach Mike Tomlin, took a police escort to the hospital to be with Shazier.

The injury looked a lot worse then it turned out to be. It appears when he attempted to make a tackle and immediate pain in his back, his legs went limp.

He had a CT scan and an MRI while at the hospital to determine his condition.

The Steelers said in a statement that his injury does not require surgery at this time. The game plan is for Shazier to return to Pittsburgh on Tuesday if everything goes according to plan, should he be released from the hospital.
