Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (concussion) was doing some running Monday, but he'll be a big question mark for Sunday's game with Miami.
Insight: The next test will be to see if he is allowed to practice Wednesday. Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones would share the workload if Bell ends up sitting Sunday.

Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell suffered an apparent head injury late of the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game against Baltimore.
Insight: Fantasy owners were robbed of a touchdown on the play in question when Bell's helmet flew off as he was falling over the goal line. A new rule signals the end of the play at the moment the helmet comes off costing fantasy owners a score.

Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell churned out 93 rushing yards Sunday against the Ravens.
Insight: Bell had 19 of the Steelers' 29 carries in the game. He's clearly locked in as the team's lead back after missing the first three games due to a sprained foot.

Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell touched the ball 20 times, had 84 yards from scrimmage and scored two touchdowns in his NFL debut Sunday versus the Steelers.
Insight: Bell missed the first three games with a sprained foot, but the Steelers threw the second-round pick right into the mix in his first game. Pittsburgh's other running backs combined for four carries for 10 yards. Bell should be a workhorse going forward, which makes him a reliable RB2.

Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot), who was a full participant in Friday's practice, is active for the Week 4 game versus Minnesota.
Insight: The Pittsburgh offense is struggling, particularly the running game and look to be determined to see if Bell is the answer. We're not sure if he is, but he's got a better chance to turn around the ground attack than anyone else on the Steelers' current roster.

9/26/2013 3:32:00 PM
Description: The Steelers have not given the official word, but Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) will start Sunday against the Vikings.
Insight: Bell is expected to make his NFL debut Sunday after missing the first three games with a sprained foot, and the team isn't wasting any time getting him involved after an 0-3 start. If he's officially announced as the starter, bump him up to a mid-level flex play.
 
9/26/2013 11:59:00 AM
Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell says his foot is 100 percent, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Bell is expect to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Vikings after missing the first three games with a sprained foot. The rookie should eventually take over as the lead back but he's a risky flex option Sunday given his uncertain role and Pittsburgh's ineptitude on offense.
 
9/25/2013 4:23:00 PM
Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice and barring a setback appears ready to play in his first NFL game.
Insight: Bell should end up being the primary running back, though it may not happen this week. He's a risky play in Week 4 unless you are forced into it by the first bye week of 2013.
 
9/24/2013 6:43:00 PM
Description: Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) will play in Week 4, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: That doesn't mean Bell will start, but given Pittsburgh's offensive issues the Steelers might want to get Bell as many touches as he can handle right off the bat. He's a low-end flex option for Week 4, but he could emerge as a solid option.
 
9/21/2013 10:22:00 PM
Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) will not play Week 3, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: Bell put in a limited practice Wednesday and fully participated Thursday and Friday, so he might be able to play next week. The Steelers will go with Felix Jones, Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer again Sunday night against the Bears, and fantasy owners can ignore this running back situation until Bell returns to action.
 
9/20/2013 2:08:00 PM
Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) was a participant in practice again on Friday.
Insight: Bell returned to a limited practice Wednesday but admitted that his foot sprain was still in the "healing process." However, his full participation in practice Thursday and Friday is a sign that he might be ready to play by Week 4.

Insight: "I don't want to rush it ... For now, I'm making sure I'm confident enough to go out there and make all the proper cuts, that I can completely stop when I need to with a burst and jump," Bell said. We expect the rookie to be out until after the Steelers' Week 5 bye.
 
9/17/2013 1:35:00 PM
Description: Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell will "ramp up" activity this week, according to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Insight: That still doesn't mean he'll be ready to go in Week 3, but does mean the sight of the inept Steelers offense on Monday night has the coaching staff worried. We still think Bell's more likely return is Week 5.
 
9/11/2013 8:02:00 PM
Description: According to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell's foot injury is now being classified as a Lisfranc injury and he could be out for at least another month.
Insight: Bell said last week he hoped to play in Week 2 against the Bengals, but it looks like he'll be out well into October.
