Le'Veon Bell sitting out Saturday with ice on his left knee

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will miss practice Saturday with a bruised left knee. According to Post Gazette reporter Ed Bouchette, he is expected to recover quickly.

It's amazing how in just a few practices Bell has become, in the estimation of a long-standing Steelers beat writer, fairly indispensable.

Even national writers are seeing Bell's value early in his Steelers career.
