Le'Veon Bell practices, but isn't looking to re-injure foot

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

It's encouraging the Steelers' rookie Bell is back on the field, but it doesn't appear he's going to go out of his way to play in Week 3.

Steelers rookie RB Le'Veon Bell was back at practice Wednesday, but as he told Tribune Review reporter Alan Robinson,"I don't want to rush it. ... I'm still in the healing process. I've got to make sure I don't reinjure it."

Bell isn't likely to play Sunday against the Chicago Bears, despite the Steelers getting off to their worst rushing start in franchise history (37.5 yards a game as a team). It's a marathon, not a sprint.

It's not a marathon or a sprint for the Steelers' running game right now. It's more like evolution. By the time the Steelers are able to run the ball, humans will have that third eye nature knows the species needs.

Bell, in the meantime, will continue with individual drills, and isn't quick to make any claims about being able to jump-start the beleaguered rushing attack.

“I'm not promising anything or saying I can do anything. I just want to help the offense.”
