PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Shazier won’t play again this season.

Yet he remains very much a part of the team even after injuring his spine against Cincinnati last month.

Shazier attended practice on Wednesday for the first time since undergoing spine stabilization surgery on Dec. 6.

Shazier posted a photo on Instagram from the team’s indoor facility as Pittsburgh prepared to host Jacksonville in the divisional round of the playoffs. Shazier is pictured in a wheelchair wearing sweatpants and a Steelers jacket, a visit that gave his teammates a needed jolt.

“It was awesome to see him,” guard Ramon Foster said. “Everybody is worried but him and it proves that he’s as strong as it gets.”

The extent of Shazier’s injury has not been released. In his Instagram post, he said his visit to the facility was “a first down” in his recovery. Shazier wrote he has been “making strides” over the past month but added he is “far from done.” The 25-year-old says he is “working harder than ever” to get back.

FALCONS: Quarterback Matt Ryan said he’ll be ready for Saturday’s NFC divisional playoff game at Philadelphia after missing Tuesday’s practice for personal reasons.

Ryan was back with the team for Wednesday’s practice. He didn’t disclose details of his absence, but indicated he was attending to a family matter.

“I just want to thank everybody for their support and outreach. It means a lot to me,” Ryan said. “I’ve always tried to keep my family life private and I hope you can respect that and I’d like to continue to do that moving forward.”

SAINTS: New Orleans placed left guard Andrus Peat (fractured fibula) and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel (undisclosed) on injured reserve and added offensive tackle Bryce Harris and defensive tackle Woodrow Hamilton to its active roster.

JAGUARS: Backup linebacker Blair Brown sprained his left ankle during practice Wednesday, a potentially big loss considering starters Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny already were dealing with injuries.

SEAHAWKS: What’s expected to be an offseason makeover for Seattle started with its coaching staff.

The Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and offensive line coach Tom Cable on Wednesday. Bevell was in charge of calling plays, while Cable was responsible for a run game and offensive line that failed to meet expectations.

It was a stunning sweep for head coach Pete Carroll, who has been immensely loyal to his assistants during his tenure.

BROWNS: New General Manager John Dorsey added former Green Bay executives Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith to his revamped front office.

The 35-year-old Wolf was the Packers’ director of football operations and recently interviewed to be their GM. He’ll be the assistant GM for the Browns.

Highsmith, a former NFL running back, spent 19 years in Green Bay’s scouting department. He will be a vice president in Cleveland’s personnel department.
