Despite not having their biggest play maker at the running back spot with them thus far in training camp, the Steelers have been going at it hard getting ready for 2017.
Today it appears they found out some clarity as to when the team might see running back Le’Veon Bell, who was unable to reach a long term deal with the Steelers before the start of camp.
Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will report back to team before regular season kicks off, though it remains unclear exactly when, per source.

It’s not a surprise to see Bell likely miss the next two preseason games and come to camp with a week left before the team takes the field for real against the Cleveland Browns on September 10th in Cleveland.
Bell and the Steelers did chat quite a bit about a long term deal, but couldn’t decide on anything, and to date has yet to ink his Franchise Tender with the team, that being the reason he hasn’t had to pay fines for missing camp thus far.
