Le'Veon Bell still has had no contact with Steelers

Report: Steelers still haven't heard from Bell

Although Le'Veon Bell has been planning to report to the Steelers in time to be ready for their October 28 game against the Browns, Pittsburgh team officials and players have not heard anything from the star running back, sources told ESPN. During his absence, James Conner has emerged as a productive replacement at running back, rushing for 453 yards and seven touchdowns. Which could, in theory, result in Bell not signing the tender.

Bell could instead report October 22.

Further complicating matters is that Pittsburgh has a bye in Week 7, which means Bell may not be in any rush to come back.

Bell has been holding out and has missed the first five games of the season after the Steelers placed the franchise tag on him for the second straight year.

As reported by ESPN, the Steelers camp has yet to hear from Bell.




Steelers are not expecting RB Le'Veon Bell to return to the team this week, per source.

Instead, it was much of the same as it has been - an empty locker and Steelers players confirming that Bell was nowhere in the facility.

Additionally, Bell is costing himself money by not returning during the bye week.

Pittsburgh will head into its bye week without Bell, a star player now not under contract after refusing to sign his $14.54 million franchise tender with the club.
