Report: Tomlin Intends On Playing Bell, Blount Against Eagles

The Pittsburgh Steelers will play the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night on the road and apparently running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will both play in the preseason game just one day after being caught possessing marijuana during a traffic stop in Ross Township.

Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network reports that head coach Mike Tomlin intends to play both players against the Eagles as he believes the whole team shouldn’t suffer because of the transgressions of the two players.

Kinkhabwala does add, however, that Tomlin’s decision to play both Bell and Blount “could theoretically be overruled” by general manager Kevin Colbert, but she’s been told by two team sources that the chances of that happening are unlikely.

Blount reportedly flew with the team to Philadelphia after the incident too place while Bell reportedly had to take a later flight at his own expense.
