Frazier hasn’t had the easiest road to recovery, dealing with headaches, light sensitivity and memory problems (even struggling to remember his cats’ names).
Frazier talked about his long road back with NJ Advance Media Yankees reporter Brendan Kuty :
I’ve been getting antsy. I want to get back up there with the team and be part of that special group up there. I’ve got to get through all the hurdles to get there. This is just another one and it doesn’t last long for me to get back up there.
That’s a huge lift, for not only him, but for us, Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told the team’s official website. To see where he’s come from to where he is and knowing where he might be able to go, it’s beyond inspirational. It’s just exciting. It’s really exciting for him.
Shazier, who joined the Steelers as a first-round pick (15th overall) out of Ohio State, has appeared in 46 career games with 41 starts, totaling 299 tackles (202 solo), seven sacks, seven interceptions, 25 passes defensed and seven forced fumbles.
Pete Carmichael has served as coordinator since 2009 and will head the offense again in 2018 with a 39-year-old Drew Brees under center.
A year ago, Brees got to relax a bit, attempting 536 passes over 16 games, his first dip below the 600-mark since—get this—2009. He still threw for 4,334 yards with 23 touchdowns and eight interceptions, yet he turned most of the offense over to Rookie of the Year Alvin Kamara.
Kamara ran for 728 yards and eight touchdowns on only 120 attempts, boasting a 6.1-yard-per-carry average. He chipped in 81 catches on 100 targets, adding 826 yards and five Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada scores.
While Kamara came up shy in rushing touchdowns behind Mark Ingram’s Cheap Ice Hockey Jerseys 12, he tied Michael Thomas for the team lead in receiving scores with five.
