Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is quickly becoming a superstar in the NFL, and the weekly awards for the second year player continue to roll in.

After his 145 yards from scrimmage (57 rushing / 88 receiving) and a touchdown against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, Bell has been nominated for the FedEx Ground Player of the Week award.

This is Bell's third nomination for the award this season, and the winner not only gets the label of being the best ground performer of the week, but FedEx will also donate $2,000 to the local area Red Cross chapter of the winner.

To vote for Bell, simply go to the NFL's FedEx page and place your vote for Le'Veon Bell, but also for the local Pittsburgh area Red Cross chapter receiving a fine donation that will help the community.

The other nominees for this week's Ground Player of the Week award are DeMarco Murray of the Dallas Cowboys who had 128 yards rushing and a touchdown in a victory over the New York Giants, and Denard Robinson of the Jacksonville Jaguars who rushed for 127 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' first win of the season over the Cleveland Browns.
