Pittsburgh Steelers' linebacker Ryan Shazier announced today that he is taking his rehab one day at a time, and dreams of playing in the NFL again after suffering a spinal injury that left him nearly paralyzed. While his toughness is admirable, many want Shazier to walk away from the NFL and live life to the fullest without the league. Others want to see Shazier back on the field for an inspirational story.

No one wants to see Shazier go, but he is struggling to even walk. He needs a cane to get around and still hasn't gotten full use of his legs yet. If he can't even walk on his own, playing one of the most brutal sports is out of the question. Shazier has his whole life ahead of him. He shouldn't be risking paralysis to play again. He should retire and enjoy his life.

In a world where bad things happen every day, people need something good to hold onto. Shazier's comeback story can be a source of inspiration for a lot of people looking for a reason to carry on. If he could make it back from a devastating injury like that, people will draw from his success to overcome whatever adversity they are experiencing. He needs to continue to rehab and make it back as a player. See you on the field, 50.
