Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Update from Steelers: “Ryan Shazier remains hospitalized at UPMC recovering from the spinal stabilization surgery performed last week by UPMC neurosurgeons and Steelers team physicians Drs. David Okonkwo and Joseph Maroon. Mr. Shazier has started physical rehabilitation as part of his recovery process.”

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers C Maurkice Pouncey: "Every week teams try and takeaway our key players and obviously they're still making plays. Belichick did a good job in the AFC Championship of guarding our guys. I think this year we have a couple more guys they're going to have to worry about."

Jeremy Fowler ESPN Staff Writer 

Steelers' Mike Mitchell on covering Gronk: "It's gonna be a group effort. We've got several guys we're going to try to throw (at him). It's going to require coaches calling the right calls, it's going be us exceuting everything they call to a T. There's no real one real answer."
