Bell Ready To Show What He Can Do; Listed As Co-Starter At RB For Monday


“This Monday, I can show people what I can do,” he said.

Big talk from a big rookie, but those words from Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell may just be a reality on Monday night as he’s gone suddenly from third team to first on the Steelers depth chart for Monday’s game vs the Redskins.

Bell will make his pro debut on National TV as the game will be on ESPN.

He was listed behind Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer last week, and wound up not playing due to a sore knee. The chart, released today, shows him as a co-starter with Issac Redman.

“The guys who are calling the shots are confident in me,” Bell said. “It’s good motivation. I’m going to keep striving to be the best I can be. I’m going to continue to compete.”

Bell has been talking tough from day one, and it appears if he can be the runner the Steeler felt like they got when they drafted him, he could be the starter come opening day vs the Titans.

For now, he’s out to prove something, and that is he should have gotten earlier looks from teams when it came to being drafted.

“I wasn’t the first running back and I didn’t go first round,” Bell said, “that’s something I can use as motivation. I always find something to motivate me and that happens to be it.”

Bell was the 48th player taken in the draft.
