Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier busted a move at his wedding well over a year after suffering a brutal injury.

Twitter account Steel Faithful posted a video Saturday of Shazier dancing with his wife Michelle during their wedding, and it’s a pretty awesome moment. (RELATED: Pittsburgh Steelers Star Returns To The Field He Suffered Horrific Spinal Injury On. The Video Is Chilling)

Check it out below.

It’s great to see Shazier progressing nicely. He’s almost certainly never going to play in the NFL again, but at least he’s moving back towards a normal life after his horrific spinal injury back in 2017 against the Bengals.

Who knows what the future holds for him at this point. Playing is almost certainly off the table. Luckily, he’s made over $18 million since entering the league back in 2014.

That should be more than enough money to help set him up for the future and a life after football, which is what he’s going to have to focus on.
