PITTSBURGH — The Steelers got a familiar visitor to practice for OTA No. 8 on Wednesday, as linebacker Ryan Shazier, who is still officially a member of the team on the physically inactive list, visited practice.
Shazier hung out with the defense during drills. Several Steelers have credited his presence as an extra voice with the team as a pseudo player-coach for their ability to offset his loss during the 2018 season.
