The news of Bell’s surgery comes weeks after we thought the running back was in the clear.
Bell missed most of the Steelers’ loss to the New England Patriots due to a groin injury. Bell told NFL Network during Super Bowl week that he had been dealing with the injury before the AFC Championship game. The NFL is investigating Bell not being listed on the team’s injury report during the playoffs. The investigation remains open, an NFL spokesman confirmed to NFL.com.
