Report: Steelers RB Le\’Veon Bell Expected To Miss Six Weeks
The Pittsburgh Steelers have yet to address how long they expect rookie running back Le\’Veon Bell to be sidelined with the mid-foot sprain he suffered Monday night against the Washington Redskins, but that hasn\’t stopped the reports.
Steelers rookie RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be out six weeks with a Lisfranc injury.

Adam Schefter of ESPN is now reporting on Twitter Wednesday afternoon that Bell is expected to be out six weeks with a Lisfranc injury.
If indeed that report winds up being true, Bell would hopefully be ready for the Week 6 game against the New York Jets following the bye week.
The Steelers Week 4 game will be played in London against the Minnesota Vikings, but I would guess they wouldn\’t try to have him ready by then.
Once again, until the Steelers confirm the timeframe, nothing is really set in stone.
