Shazier was injured making a tackle back in December of 2017 in a game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Overcoming odds, he has made it no secret that he wants to play again and continues to work on his rehabilitation.
Current and former teammates of Shazier were in attendance as the couple tied the knot at The Pennsylvanian, a downtown Pittsburgh wedding venue.
Among those that attended was Steelers quarterback Josh Dobbs, linebacker Tyler Matakevich, linebacker T. J. Watt, running back James Connor, wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, tight end Xavier Grimble, actor Joe Manganiello and more.
