Report: RB Le’Veon Bell Has ‘Badly Torn’ MCL, To Miss Rest of 2015 Season

Cincinnati Bengals v Pittsburgh Steelers

Four weeks ago the Steelers got away with not losing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for the season after it looked like it could have been a season ending injury.

The news on Le’Veon Bell isn’t as lucky.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, an MRI following Bell’s injury against the Bengals shows that he “badly tore” his MCL, and it’s not almost a for sure that his season is over.

Schefter said in the tweet that Bell will be re-evaluated Monday, but unless there’s a miracle he’s carried the ball for the last time this season.

Bell went down for the second straight season against the Bengals at home. Last year he was hurt in the regular season finale vs Cincinnati and missed the playoff loss to the Ravens.

Now it looks like they will have to play the final nine games of the regular season without him, and the running duties will have to go to DeAngelo Williams, who started the first two regular season games while Bell was suspended.

On the year, Bell had 511 yards with three touchdowns.

The running back did send out a tweet to show his thanks for fans that teammates that wished him well after he was injured.

    In addition to my above comment on Bell , between the suspensions of Bell and Bryant and the catastrophic injuries to Pouncey , Roethlisberger , Beachum , Shazier , and now LeVeon Bell again , this team never stood a chance . Thats alot to overcome for a any team , much less an average team like the Steelers . How can you legitimately judge this team when you dont even know whos going to lineup on Sunday afternoon ? These arent routine bumps and bruises , they are major injuries causing multiple games to be missed and in some cases season ending . At this point , all they can do is take the field , play out the string and hope they can find some form of consistency to finish the year .
