Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported late Monday night that rookie Le’Veon Bell is expected to play when the Steelers meet the Minnesota Vikings in London on Sunday.
This would be an acceleration of the recovery clock for Bell, who has been sidelined since suffering a mid-foot sprain during a Steelers’ preseason game last month. According to Glazer, Bell “progressed faster” than the team had anticipated.
At 6’1, 244 pounds, Bell brings a bruising running style with him from Michigan State. He rushed for 1,793 yards and 12 touchdowns on 382 (!) carries during his final year with the Spartans.
