• Steelers Running Back Le’Veon Bell Has Surgery

    After it was reported he wouldn’t get in for a procedure, today Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell underwent surgery after all today.

    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Pittsburgh Steelers’ running back had surgery Monday to fix a core muscle injury, according to a source informed of the procedure. The normal timeline for recovery is approximately six weeks

    Bell posted a photo of himself in a hospital gown on Snapchat earlier in the day, with little other context, via BehindTheSteelCurtain.com.

    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.

     
  • Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell Won’t Need Groin Surgery

    During Super Bowl LI week, Le’Veon Bell said he was hoping to avoid groin surgery. It appears the Steelers’ running back will, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

    NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that Bell is not expected to undergo surgery after visiting doctors after the playoffs. Bell has not scheduled surgery yet, which would have happened by now if necessary, per Rapoport.

    Bell missed most of the Steelers’ loss to the New England Patriots due to a groin injury. The dual-threat back told NFL Network earlier this month that he had been dealing with the injury before the AFC Championship game.

    “People don’t understand I was kind of fighting that through the playoffs,” Bell said. “I really hurt it in the Miami game. I played through the whole Kansas City game with it. The beginning of the Patriots game, I felt it.”

     
  • NFL Looking Into Le’Veon Bell Injury and If the Steelers Reported It Correctly

    While the Steelers are still licking their wounds over a disaster of an AFC Title Game last week, there’s now news that the NFL is looking into the injury for running back Le’Veon Bell.

    The NFL is looking to see if the team properly listed Bell on the injury report, an injury that eventually ended his game and most of the running output for the Steelers in the 19-point loss.

    Here’s the report from ESPN:

    The NFL is investigating whether the Pittsburgh Steelers properly listed running back Le’Veon Bell on last week’s injury reports, a source told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter on Friday.

    Bell said after Sunday’s AFC Championship loss to the New England Patriots that he had been managing a groin injury in recent weeks. Bell was hurt in the game and carried the ball five times for 18 yards.

    Bell got consecutive Wednesdays off during the playoffs with a “not injury related” designation, and, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Bell had an excused absence on Jan. 19. A source close to Bell told ESPN that the absence was specifically for a personal matter and not groin-related.

    What could come of the eventual situation with Bell and will the Steelers get punished? It’s probably going to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist if anything, but as usual with the NFL, you never know what’s going to happen.
