Bell and teammate LeGarrette Blount are both slated to play in Thursday's preseason finale against the Panthers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

While coach Mike Tomlin has indicated that the Steelers are considering their options in terms of punishment following the duo's arrest on marijuana possession charges last week, ESPN.com suggests that it's unlikely that the team will sit either running back for an entire game, adding that a potential suspension from the NFL won't likely come until next season. That's a notion echoed by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who doubts that either Bell or Blount are candidates to be suspended or made inactive for the first game of the season.

Bell could still face a team suspension after getting arrested on marijuana possession and DUI charges last week, according to ESPN.com. "There are parts of this that are going to have to go through the legal process and the league review process," said Steelers president Art Rooney II. "We'll just have to deal with it as that process unfolds."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin added that both Bell and LeGarrette Blount, who was also charged with marijuana possession, will be punished, meaning Pittsburgh could be without one or both running backs when they open the regular season against Cleveland. Their absence would be particularly worrisome, as no other running back on the Steelers' roster has any NFL carries. Both Bell and Blount also face discipline from the league, although nothing is expected to happen until next season. Blount has been projected to take a few of Bell's touches, especially in short-yardage and goal-line situations, while Bell is being drafted just outside the top 10 in most formats. Owners planning on starting either should check back to see what, if any, punishments are handed out.
Bell rushed for 23 yards on nine carries, and had one reception for three yards in the Steelers' preseason game against Philadelphia Thursday.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell, who was arrested for marijuana possession and suspicion of DUI on Wednesday, played into the fourth quarter of Thursday's game. So did teammate and backfield mate LeGarrette Blount, who was arrested along with Bell on Wednesday. With no league punishment expected anytime soon, the bigger issue for prospective fantasy owners is figuring out how the goal-line work will be divided. The Steelers didn't get in range to provide any hints Thursday, but it seems likely that Blount will at least handle some, if not most, of the goal-line carries. Bell still figures to get more touches, and he will be much more active as a receiver, but the Steelers have made it fairly clear that Blount will also be a big part of the offense.
Bell and LeGarrette Blount are slated play in Thursday's preseason game against the Eagles, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
