At noon in Pittsburgh on Sunday, it was 14 degrees and felt like 6, according to AccuWeather.
But you wouldn’t know it if you watched Ryan Shazier take some on-field pregame reps before the Steelers hosted the Dolphins in an AFC wild-card game.
The former Ohio State linebacker was warming up shirtless before the playoff game. But at least he was wearing gloves and had his head and face covered.
It's 14 degrees in Pittsburgh right now… So how does @RyanShazier warm up?

Shazier, a Florida native, apparently has adjusted to the cold during his time at Ohio State and with the Steelers.
A first-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Shazier was an All-American in 2013 with the Buckeyes. He’s transitioned well to the NFL and made 87 tackles and three sacks in 13 games during the 2016 regular season.
Shazier is hoping to make a Super Bowl run with the Steelers and reach the championship game in Houston, where it will be more reasonable to practice without a shirt.
