Pittsburgh star linebacker Ryan Shazier, who suffered a serious spinal cord injury in a game last December, is determined to continue his playing career at some point, but he was in teacher mode on Saturday at Steelers training camp.

Shazier was using a cane to walk as he was working with the Steelers' linebackers.

A tweet from Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review showed Shazier close up for some linebacker drills.

Shazier suffered the injury while making a tackle Dec. 4 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Shazier's father, Vernon, told ESPN in May that the linebacker was "submerged" in rehab and is expected to soon walk on his own.

In February, Ryan Shazier said on a teammate's podcast that not only does he expect to return to the field, he expects to excel and take his place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

"I'm really trusting the process, and I know the end goal," Shazier said at the time. "I'm taking it every step of the way, but I'm like, I'm giving it like my football effort, like 1,000, everything I've got. ... I'm still reaching for that Hall of Famer. I really feel like I'm the best linebacker ever. I've just got to get back out there so everybody can see it."
