Although Le'Veon Bell has been planning to report to the Steelers in time to be ready for their October 28 game against the Browns, Pittsburgh team officials and players have not heard anything from the star running back, sources told ESPN.
Citing a source, ESPN reported two weeks ago that Bell was planning to show up during the Steelers' bye week, which began on Monday, and be ready for the Week 8 game against the Browns.
Conner is the Steelers Digest Player of the Week.
"I don't know, I".
By not showing up this week - during which the Steelers do not even play a game - Le'Veon Bell is costing himself at least a shot at $856K. Although James Conner has been playing exceptionally as the replacement running back, it's hard to imagine the Steelers struggling as much with Bell on the field. Whatever his intentions, the Steelers still haven't heard anything from him. Whether or not you agree with his argument, the Steelers are in the business of preparing for the next opponent and hanging around in a feisty AFC North. With the exception of Todd Gurley, Bell is the most dynamic running back in the NFL.
We should all be so lucky - to float around America with nobody tugging on us to be here or there at every second of the day.
