Bell not expected back with Steelers this week

16 October 2018

The Pittsburgh Steelers still haven't heard from Le'Veon Bell despite his plan to report in time to be ready for their October 28 game against the Baltimore Ravens. They previously reported that Bell was rumored to return around the Steelers' bye in week 7.

Le'Veon Bell's relationship with the Pittsburgh Steelers has been an ongoing headline all season. He's been fined a reported $853,000 for every game he's missed, which adds up to $5,118,000 in total fines so far. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora also reported Sunday the Steelers still are considering trading the 26-year-old running back if he signs his $14.5 million franchise tag before the October 30 trade deadline. No one within the Steelers organization knows exactly when Bell will report this upcoming week, which was previously reported by ESPN's Jeremy Fowler. He also caught four passes for 18 yards to finish with 129 yards from scrimmage.

Television images showed waters coursing through towns and villages, with cars stranded in the floodwaters. Several deaths were in the town of Trebes, which sits between a canal and two rivers, including the Aude.

Despite Bell's absence, the Steelers' offense now ranks fifth in total yards per game (417.7), a season after ranking third (387.7).

Bell's window to return to the team and still earn a full season continues to shrink but coming back in Week Seven gives him plenty of time.
