Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell Returns To Practice
Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell said Friday the left knee injury he re-aggravated during practice a day earlier isn't believed to be serious.
''It's not too bad, nothing too major,'' said Bell, who added there was no ligament tear. ''I don't know the length or period of time, but it's not as bad as everybody thinks it is.''
The second-round pick from Michigan State proved it by dressing in full pads and practicing in a limited capacity, participating in non-contact work with the other running backs. He sat out all team drills.
''He's got a clean bill of health, so it's time to get back out here and start the process of readying himself for the game like all other healthy men,'' Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said.
Bell's status for the team's second preseason game Monday night at Washington remains uncertain, but the rookie hopes to see action.
''I'm going to try my best,'' Bell said. ''I can't make any promises, but we're going to see.''
