Le'Veon Bell will start for the Steelers against Vikings

USA TODAY Sports

The rookie second-round draft pick will start in his professional debut.

ESPN 970's David Todd tweeted Sunday the Steelers will give Le'Veon Bell the first start of his pro career when the Steelers take on the Vikings in London.

Bell has been sidelined since Aug. 19 with a foot injury. The Steelers are the league's worst rushing team, and Bell was supposedly the team's top running back through training camp.

The offensive line is still a question, so Bell might not make much of a difference. The Vikings are among the league's worst rush-defensive teams, though, and it wouldn't be a shock to see the Steelers aim to get Bell the ball early and often.
