Le'Veon Bell injury: Steelers RB to play vs. Dolphins

Jared Wickerham

The rookie running back will play on Sunday after suffering a concussion on Thanksgiving.

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will be active on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, according to the team's inactives list and reported by CBS Sports' Jay Glazer.

The rookie running back suffered a concussion on a hard hit during his Thanksgiving night game against the Baltimore Ravens, but he has cleared all concussion protocols and is healthy to play against the Dolphins. Bell has emerged as a legitimate three-down back for Pittsburgh in his first season in the NFL and will be going up against a Miami defense that has struggled significantly against the run this season.

Bell is averaging just 3.3 yards per carry this season, but has 319 yards receiving on 33 catches, becoming a serious threat out of the backfield for Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers offense. The rookie back has 528 total yards rushing and five touchdowns in nine games this season.
