Le'Veon Bell injury: Steelers rookie running back returns to the field

Ed Mulholland-USA TODAY Sports

Bell struggled with injury to his right foot in the preseason, and may have aggravated it again against the Jets.

Update: Bell returned for the Steelers in the fourth quarter.

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell came up gingerly after it appeared his right foot and ankle were rolled over after a reception in the third quarter of the Steelers' Week 6 game against the New York Jets.

Bell was taken out of the third down play that followed, a passing attempt from Antonio Brown where he was pushed out of bounds for a loss. It resulted in a field goal, putting the Steelers up 19-6.

Bell had 41 total yards at the time of the injury, as the Jets are dominating the line of scrimmage against the run.

He missed half of the preseason, and the first three games of the season with a Lisfranc injury in his right foot. His return is questionable.

While Bell's statistics are not outstanding in this game, he's drawing coverage in an outstanding passing game for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

The Steelers are up 19-6 with the ball with 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter.
