Le'Veon Bell: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bell has been suspended three games for a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell will also be fined an additional game check, but per Schefter, the Steelers' back plans to appeal. It had been previously reported that Bell was facing a two-game suspension stemming from marijuana and DUI charges last August, so the punishment turned out to be a bit harsher than expected. After collecting over 2,000 total yards and 11 combined touchdowns in 2014, Bell was expected to be a clear cut first-rounder in most 2015 drafts. Although this still may hold true, owners who go this route risk having to wait until Week 4 to utilize the 23-year-old's services. His absence to start the regular season paves the way for newcomer DeAngelo Williams to see added responsibilities in the Pittsburgh backfield early on.
Bell faces a potential two-game suspension to start the 2015 season as a result of his August arrest on marijuana and DUI charges, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

It remains to be seen if and when such a ruling will be handed down by the league, but the report indicates that a two-game suspension is an expected outcome for Bell, who was the NFL's second-leading rusher this past season, with 1,361 yards to go along with eight rushing touchdowns. The 22-year-old running back was also the Steelers' second-leading receiver in 2014, with 83 catches for 854 yards and three receiving TDs. We'll await further word on Bell's status to start the coming season, but if he is indeed suspended, his value in re-draft formats will obviously take a bit of a hit, while the Steelers will need to come up with alternate backfield arrangements out of the gate.
Bell may be suspended by the NFL for an incident back in August that led to charges of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell was accepted into a 15-month probationary program, and with the court case finally resolved, the NFL can hand down a suspension. Bell's attorney, Robert Del Greco, said that league guidelines suggest a one or two-game suspension. It's probably not a good sign that Bell's attorney is admitting as much, and we should know more within the next few weeks. This will likely add a wrinkle to the beginning of 2015 fantasy drafts, as Bell was the early favorite to go first overall in many leagues.
Bell indicated Monday that his injured knee feels good enough for him to play in the NFL Pro Bowl later this month, ESPN.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell missed this past Saturday's playoff loss to the Ravens with a hyperextended right knee, but he believes that he would have been able to play this coming weekend, had the Steelers advanced. In any case, his knee won't be an issue as the 2015 season approaches, at which time he'll reprise his duties as Pittsburgh's top back, on the heels of an outstanding 2014 campaign in which carried 290 times for 1,361 yards and eight TDs, while also catching 83 passes for 854 yards and three receiving touchdowns.
The Steelers have ruled Bell (knee) out for Saturday's playoff game against the Ravens, the team's official site reports.

With Bell out this weekend, ESPN.com notes that Josh Harris is in line to start in his place, with Dri Archer and the recently signed Ben Tate, to a lesser degree, also in the mix for touches in the Steelers' backfield on Saturday.
Bell (knee) did not practice Thursday, Bob Labriola of Steelers.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell, who suffered a hyperextended knee against the Bengals in Week 17, thus remains iffy for Saturday’s wild card game against the Ravens. If Bell is unable to play in the contest, ESPN.com indicates that Josh Harris would be in line to start in his place, with Dri Archer and newcomer Ben Tate, to a lesser degree, also in the mix for touches in the Steelers' backfield.

2013

With the 48th pick in this year's draft, the Steelers seemingly drafted Bell to be their starter this season. Gone is Rashard Mendenhall, and Jonathan Dwyer – last year’s leading rusher – and Isaac Redman aren't likely to hold off the rookie who rushed for 1,793 yards at Michigan State last season. Behind an offensive line that features Mike Pouncey and 2012 first-round pick David DeCastro, Bell should find good running room. At 6-2, 237, Bell isn't fast (4.6 40 at the combine), but he has good field vision, nimble feet and powerful legs to push the pile. Moreover, he comes from a program that ran a pro-style offense, which offensive coordinator Todd Haley speculates should make Bell's transition to Pittsburgh's offense easier. LaRod Stephens-Howling will complete for a third-down role, but Bell is expected to stay on the field on passing downs as he's a good blocker and has soft hands (78 career receptions in college). All of which puts Bell in an excellent position to produce as a rookie once he is able to return from a foot injury that will hold him out of action early in the season.
