Le'Veon Bell Injury: Reactions from fans and media border on exasperation

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Sighs, jokes and general frustration permeate social media after Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell injures his foot in the first quarter of Pittsburgh's preseason game against Washington.

Le'Veon Bell went down with a right foot injury after taking four carries in his preseason debut. He rushed for nine yards, a mark Jonathan Dwyer eclipsed on one carry.

Post Gazette reporter Gerry Dulac broke kayfabe for a second in his reaction Tweet.

It doesn't take long for fans to quickly bring up decisions that weren't made. Perhaps this is a fair statement now.

Humor certainly always helps.

Le'Veon Duce doesn't quite have the same ring to it, but that's the third reported time Bell has been injured, and the Steelers are one game and one quarter into the preseason, and three weeks into training camp and practices.

At least the Steelers offensive line is healthy, and looking outstanding.

Oh.
