PITTSBURGH (AP) This is not the way Arthur Moats or anybody else wanted the veteran linebacker to get back into the regular rotation for the Pittsburgh Steelers defense.

As teammate Ryan Shazier rested in a hospital on Thursday recovering from surgery to stabilize his injured spine Authentic Mark Andrews Jersey , his long-term prognosis still uncertain, Moats set about getting familiar with Shaziers spot at inside linebacker in preparation for Sunday nights game against Baltimore.

Its a position Moats hardly considers his for the rest of the season.

Thats the last thing Im concerned about, Moats said.

Not when theres still so much unknown about Shazier.

The 25-year-old left Paul Brown Stadium in an ambulance on Monday night after injuring his spine while hitting Cincinnati wide receiver Josh Malone in the first quarter of Pittsburghs 23-20 victory.

Shazier spent about 36 hours in a Cincinnati hospital before being transported to Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Team doctors and neurosurgeons Drs. David Okwonkow and Joseph Maroon performed surgery to stabilize Shaziers spine on Wednesday night.

If they say thats the best thing for him, were all for it, Moats said. Admittedly thats our brother. Youre always nervous seeing him go down on Monday and at the end of the day were just praying for him.

The Steelers signed linebacker Sean Spence who spent three seasons with the team after being selected in the third round of the 2012 draft on Wednesday to provide depth.

Spence Authentic Logan Couture Jersey , however, hasnt played since being released by Indianapolis in October. And with backup Tyler Matakevich dealing with a shoulder injury, Moats will line up next to Vince Williams when the Steelers (10-2) look to clinch the AFC North against the Ravens (7-5).

Moats moved frequently between inside and outside linebacker after the Buffalo Bills took him in the sixth round of the 2010 draft, but has worked exclusively on the outside since signing with Pittsburgh in 2014. That changed this week, when the coaches called him on Tuesday and told him to get ready to move inside.

If youre a linebacker on this team you should know what everybody on the field is doing every defense Authentic Jaire Alexander Jersey , defensive coordinator Keith Butler said.

The reason (Moats) has stayed around as long as he has is because he does know that. Knowing it and doing it are two different things. We hope he can help us.

Something Moats has done regularly when called on. He rolled up 11+ sacks from 2014-16 before taking on a lesser role this season behind Bud Dupree and rookie T.J. Watt.

Though he lacks Shaziers elite speed Moats joked he runs a 4.3 40-yard dash like Shazier but its wind-aided at 246 pounds he has the size to be effective against the run and the institutional knowledge so that being forced into the lineup so quickly shouldnt be an issue.

Ever since my situation in Buffalo where I would switch positions sometimes in the middle of the year from inside to outside, whether its 4-3 or 3-4, Ive always been aware of whats going on at the position and helps me understand defenses in general.

Though Butler allowed Spence isnt quite in football shape after being out of work for two months, Spences mere presence is a testament to both Pittsburghs trust in him and Spences perseverance.

Spence was a rookie nearing the end of an impressive training camp in 2012 when he stepped awkwardly in the preseason finale against Carolina and tore two ligaments in his left knee, leading to a long and painful rehab that robbed him of his first two seasons and threatened his career.

He returned in 2014 and played in a reserve role across two seasons before signing as a free agent with Tennessee Buccaneers Vinny Curry Jersey , a move facilitated in part by Shaziers emergence.

Back in Pittsburgh, Spence is all too familiar with the prospect of having your life severely altered by what looks like a routine play. He was able to recover. Shaziers prognosis remains far murkier.

In their limited contact with Shazier, his teammates say hes done nothing but encourage them to continue to push forward. Spence is ready to shake off the rust and put his hand in a pile that feels familiar even after two-plus seasons away.

People are saying he wants to be around, hes asking about all the guys here, Spence said. He wants us to go out there and play for him. Go out and win for him.

NOTES: Matakevich and CB Joe Haden (fractured leg) did not practice on Thursday. WR Antonio Brown (toe) also did not practice while Watt was limited (knee). S Mike Mitchell (ankle) and TE Vance McDonald (ankle) were full participants.
