The Bengals' Andy Dalton joined with Steelers players to pray for Ryan Shazier, who was injured in the game on Monday night, Dec. 4.

Linebacker Shazier was carted off the field due to a back injury. ESPN reports he won't need surgery, but remained in the hospital overnight.

Though the Steelers had just beat the Bengals 23-20, Dalton knew his allegiance was to Christ first and then his team. He got down on his knees and held hands with the Steelers to lift Shazier up in prayer, and Twitter took notice.

 

 

Prayers also came from around the internet.
