Injured Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier is going home.
Shazier was released from the hospital on Thursday http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com...air-jersey , nearly two months after suffering a spinal injury in a victory over Cincinnati. The Pro Bowler underwent spine stabilization on Dec. 6 and while he was able to travel a bit, including visiting team practices and making appearances at Heinz Field for games, he returned to the hospital each evening.

The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center says Shazier will transition to an outpatient therapy program.

The 25-year-old Shazier posted a picture on Instagram of him standing alongside Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger shortly after his discharge was announced. Shazier has his left arm draped over Roethlisberger’s shoulders and his right hand on something for support. Shazier thanked everyone from family to teammates to doctors to fans for their support and said he will ”continue to work hard and push and find a way back.”

”I want everyone to know that I’m moving on to the next step of the process,” Shazier wrote.

Shazier has not disclosed the exact nature of his injury. He used a wheelchair as transport while attending team events following his surgery.

NOTES: The Steelers signed punter Jordan Berry to a one-year contract extension for the 2018 season on Thursday. Berry, 26, could have become a restricted free agent in March. He averaged 43.2 yards per punt in 2017, his third since taking over as the team’s punter.



AP NFL website: More than 40 million people watched the NFL’s two preliminaries for the Super Bowl on Sunday, a drop of more than 8 percent compared to last year’s conference championship games.

The Nielsen company said an average of 43.2 million people watched the games. While that’s down from the 47.1 million who watched the conference championships last year, it was a more heartening report than the NFL had gotten only a week earlier. This year’s divisional championship round had seen a 16 percent dip in audience size.

Night games generally do better in the ratings than afternoon contests, but not this year. The New England-Jacksonville contest that ended around dinnertime was a better game featuring the league’s marquee player in Tom Brady. That game reached 44.1 million http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com...ton-jersey , compared to the 42.3 million who watched Philadelphia blow out Minnesota, Nielsen said.

After seeing viewership erosion all year, the NFL will be anxious to see if that extends to the secular holiday of Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 4. The Super Bowl is the most-watched television event each year.

The NFC game boosted Fox’s new medical soap, ”The Resident,” which reached 8.65 million viewers for its premiere episode on Sunday. Television viewers had their stethoscopes handy, with medical shows ”The Good Doctor,” ”Grey’s Anatomy” and ”Chicago Med” also landing among Nielsen’s 20 most popular programs last week.

With a prime-time football game, Fox won the week by averaging 10.6 million viewers. CBS had 6.9 million, ABC had 4.74 million, NBC had 4.69 million http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com...nes-jersey , the CW had 1.53 million, Univision had 1.47 million, ION Television had 1.3 million and Telemundo had 1.2 million.

Fox News Channel was the week’s most popular cable network, averaging 2.65 million viewers in prime time. MSNBC had 1.95 million viewers, USA averaged 1.5 million, HGTV had 1.49 million and TNT had 1.46 million.

ABC’s ”World News Tonight” topped the evening newscasts with an average of 10.4 million viewers. NBC’s ”Nightly News” was second with 9.8 million and the ”CBS Evening News” had 7.4 million.

For the week of Jan. 15-21, the top 10 shows, their networks and viewerships: NFC Championship: Minnesota vs. Philadelphia, Fox, 42.3 million; ”NFC Championship Post-Game” (9:39-9:47 p.m. ET) http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline....rds-jersey , Fox, 26.53 million; ”NFC Championship Post-Game” (9:47-10:04 p.m. ET), Fox, 18.88 million; ”The Big Bang Theory,” CBS, 14.92 million; ”Young Sheldon,” CBS, 13.33 million; ”NCIS,” CBS, 9.88 million; ”This is Us http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline....gay-jersey ,” NBC, 9.82 million; ”Blue Bloods,” CBS, 9.45 million; ”The Good Doctor,” ABC, 9.34 million; ”Mom,” CBS, 9.26 million.
