Le'Veon Bell injury: Steelers RB could be out a month, per report

Al Messerschmidt

Pittsburgh's rookie back might be sidelined until October.

The Pittsburgh Steelers had plenty of problems in their Opening Day 16-9 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Now, they get news that running back Le'Veon Bell might be out for a month, according to Dejan Kovacevic.

Bell came into training camp with a chance to take the top spot on the depth chart but hasn't been able to stay on the field after suffering a foot sprain during the preseason. The Steelers decided to start Isaac Redman against Tennessee, but nothing seemed to work as the team gained 32 yards on the ground.

Pittsburgh did re-sign Jonathan Dwyer after cutting him right before the season began. Dwyer led the team in rushing last year and seems to be the answer until Bell can come back.

The Steelers will look to get back on the right track Monday night when they travel to the Queen City for a date with the Cincinnati Bengals.
