The Pittsburgh Steelers getting all their offensive weapons back on the field for the Week 8 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals didn't last  long. In the second quarter against the Bengals, Le'Veon Bell caught a pass out of the backfield and was tackled awkwardly by several Bengals defenders with his knee folding underneath him while going to the ground.

This injury was to his right knee, where the injury last year against the Bengals in Week 17 was to his left knee. Bell was taken to the team's locker room for further evaluation, leaving his return not just for the game, but for the rest of the season is certainly put in question.

When Bell left the game the Steelers were clinging to a 7-6 lead with time left in the first half remaining in the game. This story will be updated as more news on Bell comes to light.

UPDATE: Bell's return to the game Sunday has been labeled as 'Doubtful'.
