Steelers Injury Report: RB Le’Veon Bell Sits Out Wednesday As Expected

The Pittsburgh Steelers will host the Baltimore Ravens Saturday night in an AFC Wild Card game at Heinz Field and with their first practice of the week now completed, the Wednesday injury report shows that running back Le’Veon Bell (knee) didn’t practice as expected.

Bell, who suffered a hyperextended right knee Sunday night in the win over the Cincinnati Bengals, is no longer walking with a discernible limp, according to several Wednesday media reports on Twitter. While he did not practice Wednesday, he was able to continue to work on an exercise bike.

“Obviously, I’m taking it day by day,” Bell said Wednesday.

In addition to Bell, tackle Mike Adams (illness), quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related) and tight end Heath Miller (not injury related) also failed to practice Wednesday. Roethlisberger and Miller were given a veteran’s day off.

Limited Wednesday were nose tackle Steve McLendon (shoulder) and tight end Michael Palmer (groin). Palmer failed to play this past Sunday against the Bengals after injuring his groin during the week of practice leading up to the game.

Practicing fully Wednesday were safety Troy Polamalu (knee) and cornerback Ike Taylor (shoulder, forearm). Polamalu has missed the last two games with a knee injury while Taylor hasn’t played since the Week 14 win over the Bengals.
