Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has mid-foot sprain, set for Tuesday MRI
If you're drafting in the next 12 hours, you might want to give Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell a wide berth. The rookie left Monday's game against the Redskins after just four carries, but that wasn't part of the plan. Bell limped off the field and has been diagnosed with a mid-foot sprain. More will be known after he undergoes an MRI on Tuesday.
Of course, Lisfranc is the first word that pops into the heads of many when such a diagnosis is made. Even if that's not the case, Bell might have ligament or tendon damage. We will update this story Tuesday. Knowing only what I know now, I think Bell is questionable to play in 20 days when the Steelers' regular season begins. Bell has been justly rising in drafts, but you should be aware that Isaac Redman is his backup.
