The Pittsburgh Steelers are likely having a brutal go of it. With linebacker Ryan Shazier on the shelf, dealing with serious medical issues, his teammates must have a hard time keeping their mind on other tasks.

If nothing else, the aftermath of Ryan Shazier injuring his neck (as well as other parts of his body) has taught us that he's a beloved member of the Steelers. It is why it should come as no shock that his teammates plan on honoring him on Sunday with cleats made in his likeness.

Various images of the cleats have emerged on social media, including the Sunday Night Football account and the SportsCenter Twitter account.

As for Shazier, the young defensive standout underwent spinal stabilization surgery this week after suffering a back injury against the Bengals. Reports on his condition have mostly been mum, as it appears people are — rightfully — trying to protect his privacy.

Of course, we wish him nothing but the best and a full recovery.

The Steelers are hosting the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. It should be a good one.
