Source: Bell not expected to report this week
7:01 PM ET
The Steelers are on their bye this week and the players are off Thursday through Sunday. Bell could next report Monday, Oct. 22.
Although Le’Veon Bell has been planning to report to the Steelers in time to be ready for their Oct. 28 game against the Browns, team officials and players have not heard anything from the star running back, sources told ESPN.
Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell plans to report during the Week 7-8 time frame, a source has told ESPN. The Steelers are on a bye in Week 7.
Bell told ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler earlier this month that he intended to report to the Steelers during the Week 7-8 time frame.
“I miss football,” Bell told Fowler then. “When I do get back, I plan to give it my all. I still do want to go out there and win a Super Bowl with the Steelers.”
Despite that statement, as of Sunday, Bell had still not been in touch with team officials or players, sources
