Report: Steelers Rookie RB Le’Veon Bell Scheduled To Play Sunday Against Vikings

According to Jay Glazer on Twitter Monday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers are indeed planning to play rookie running back Le’Veon Bell against the Minnesota Vikings this Sunday in London.

Glazer reports Bell’s foot sprain that he suffered during the second preseason game has progressed faster than they thought it would and that they now feel he can play this weekend as long as there are no setbacks this week in practice.

Bell, the Steelers second-round draft pick this past April out of Michigan State, practiced fully last week on Thursday and Friday and was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report.

The Steelers have rushed for an all-time franchise low 155 yards through their first three games of the 2013 season and that includes as season-high 80 yards Sunday night against the Chicago Bears.

If indeed Bell does play, he more than likely will be put on a snap count Sunday against the Vikings.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin will likely address Bell’s status Tuesday during his weekly press conference.
