Steelers rookie RB Le'Veon Bell suffers knee injury in practice

USA TODAY Sports

BTSC's Rebecca Rollett is reporting RB Le'Veon Bell suffers a knee injury in practice Thursday during practice at Steelers training camp.

Update:

Steel City Insider's Jim Wexell says he spoke with a few Steelers players who said Bell's injury isn't significant.

According to Behind The Steel Curtain's Rebecca Rollett, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie RB Le'Veon Bell suffered a knee injury on a stretch run in practice on Thursday afternoon.

Bell went down and stayed there initially favoring his previously injured knee.  He then got up under his own power and gingerly walked off the field.  However, he returned to the ground soon after with the Steelers training staff, who eventually heavily wrapped and iced his knee and upper calf area.

Bell is the second running back to leave practice on Thursday, after Isaac Redman took a vicious blow from Larry Foote on the first play from scrimmage.  As Bell was having his knee wrapped, Redman was watching from the sidelines with his pads already off and his day over, but no visible wrappings or bandages on his reportedly injured arm.

Bell removed the wrapping by the end of practice, but did not return to the field noticeably limping on the sidelines.

The Steelers do not resume their preseason schedule until Monday night against the Washington Redskins, giving both backs the opportunity to rest their legs.  BTSC will update both situations as further details emerge.
