Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't begun practicing yet

The Steelers said last week they hoped running back Le'Veon Bell would be back from his foot sprain by Week 2. Bell said he would play in the game. But you can't play if you don't practice, and according to Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest, Bell hasn't even taken part in individual drills since suffering his injury on Aug. 19. Labriola guesses that Bell won't play until after the Steelers' bye in Week 5.

Fantasy Analysis:

As such, the Steelers will head into Monday's game versus Cincinnati with Isaac Redman @ired33, Felix Jones @felixjones28, and Jonathan Dwyer @JDwyer27 as their top three running backs. Redman rushed for nine yards on eight carries and lost a fumble in Week 1. Jones played just one snap and promptly missed a block. Dwyer was just re-acquired yesterday by the Steelers, who cut him prior to the season but needed more depth after LaRod Stephens-Howling @LS_H36 tore his ACL. Redman will get the start again, but this is a situation to avoid, especially against the Bengals' solid run defense.
