Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell practices Monday
Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell didn't play in Saturday's preseason opener against the Giants because of a sore knee. Bell said he wanted to play and called his absence a "disappointment," but the Steelers were just being cautious with their likely 2013 starter. Bell was back at practice Monday and should play next Monday against the Redskins.
"I can't wait until Monday's game," Bell said. "But I am going to just sharpen my sword, get ready for battle and go out here for practice and do what I can."
I love that quote.
Bell's ADP should be rising above the likes of Montee Ball and perhaps even David Wilson -- and that's hard for me to admit. Unlike those other two, it doesn't look like Bell will have to share the Steelers' backfield. The team reportedly wants to make him its workhorse right away. Bell is a nice RB2 with considerable upside.
