The Pittsburgh Steelers, almost 20 players together, wanted to wear cleats to honor injured linebacker Ryan Shazier before the Sunday Night Football game vs. the Baltimore Ravens. However, the NFL usually sticks their nose up to players showing individuality like this.

To most, this would be a no-brainer considering the severity of Shazier’s injury in Week 13, but, for once, the NFL is doing the right thing and allowing players to wear the “Shalieve” cleats.

Take a look at some of the cleats players will be wearing, as well as how the team is honoring Shazier prior to the prime time game.
