Upon arriving in Latrobe for training camp, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell indicated that he didn’t know too much about the current appeal of his three-game suspension. On Monday, however, Josina Anderson of ESPN was able to get a little more out of the third-year running back.
Anderson asked Bell to update what specific progress has been made to date with his appeal.
“We just kind of been talking, going back and forth,” Bell told Anderson. “Still fighting, both sides. I’m making my case, they’re making their case. So, we’re just kind of letting things happen. Like I said, when the appeal date happens, I just got to go with it.
Anderson then asked Bell to name the biggest reason why he things his appeal hasn’t happened yet.
“I’m not real sure about what’s all happening, or what’s going on, said Bell. “I’m just going through the process. Me and my agent are trying to handle our business. We handle what we can. I’m just going to come out here and play football and take it day to day.”
Bell was suspended for the first three games of the 2015 season back on April 9 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy last August. According to the graphic used in Anderson’s report on NFL Live, that’s the same day that Bell filed his appeal.
