Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday morning in a written statement that the team is seeking a second opinion on rookie running back Le\’Veon Bell, who suffered a mid-foot sprain Monday night against the Washington Redskins.
Bell had an MRI on Tuesday and was reportedly already wearing a walking boot. He has been ruled out for the third preseason game Saturday night against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Le’Veon had his MRI on Tuesday, and we are still awaiting final diagnosis and results of a second opinion. He will not participate this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I will provide an update once we have received the official results of his tests over the next couple of days.
This is certainly not good and you sure hope it isn\’t a Lisfranc injury. It doesn\’t sound like he will be suiting up any time soon.
Bell was drafted by the Steelers in the second-round this past April out of Michigan State.
