Le’Veon Bell goes to locker room with apparent knee injury vs. Bengals
Le’Veon Bell had to leave Sunday night’s pivotal bout against the Bengals with an apparent knee injury.
Bell was able to trot off the field under his own power initially, but he went to the Steelers‘ locker room after being examined by trainers on the sideline.
The Pittsburgh Steelers running back has struggled to stay healthy during his first two seasons in the NFL. He missed what should have been the first three games of his 2013 rookie season with a Lisfranc injury.
After getting back up to full strength, however, Bell has been an incredibly productive player in the Steelers’ offense. This season, he has gone over 100 yard rushing four times, including a 204-yard performance against the Tennessee Titans in mid-November.
Bell suffered the injury after taking a hit to his knee in the third quarter.
