The entire NFL family is rooting for Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier to recover from a spinal injury and return to the football field, and that includes New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Shazier posted a video to his Instagram page Sunday of a workout, and ESPN tweeted it out. Brady saw it, and offered some words of encouragment for the Steelers star.

Patriots defensive backs Devin and Jason McCourty also were happy to see Shazier doing well.
Shazier wasn't expected to walk when he suffered his injury late in the 2017 season against the Cincinnati Bengals, so the fact he's not only walking but able to do box jumps is incredibly impressive.
The 26-year-old linebacker still has a long road back to playing in the NFL, but given his progress so far, no one should doubt his chances of a successful comeback. He's been an inspiration to everyone in football.
