That was fast. Or slow.
Steelers rookie Le'Veon Bell was injured in the first quarter of the Steelers' preseason game at Washington Monday. ESPN broadcasters said it appeared he was favoring his foot when he left the game after four carries and nine yards.
According to Steelers Digest editor Bob Labriola, Bell did not leave based on the game plan.
Dwyer in at RB for the @Steelers for their second offensive possession. Bell must be injured, because the plan was to play him longer— Bob Labriola (@BobLabriola) August 20, 2013
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, and the Steelers trail 7-0 in the first quarter.
Needless to say, it's not a good start in Washington.
