Steelers Le’Veon Bell Scheduled for MRI on Sprained Foot

Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell suffered a mid-foot sprain in Monday’s preseason game, but will still undergo an MRI at some point on Tuesday. The Steelers want to rule out any ligament damage and ESPN’s Adam Schefter explains that this type of injury sometimes turns into a Lisfranc fracture.

Bell, a second round pick in this year’s draft, had 4 carries for 9 yards before the injury. Bell has been tagged as a sleeper by many experts due to his powerful running style and his 6’1’’ 244 pound build.

Many thought that his abilities combined with the Steelers smash-mouth running style would result in a lot of goal line touches for Bell.

Despite all of this, Bell is not guaranteed the starting job coming into the season. This injury could open the door for Jonathan Dwyer or Isaac Redman to seize the starting job going into the regular season.
