Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell wants to be more explosive this season
by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell enjoyed a career season last year. He rushed for 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns.

But that's not enough.

This season, Bell wants to concentrate on being more explosive and breaking off more long runs.

“It’s making the defense play all of their gaps, play honest. If they don’t, if they get a little greedy, you have to make them pay. That’s when the big runs come," Bell said. "You see a defender try to make a tackle and he is out of his gap. I have to make a defense pay every time for that. When they make that mistake, and everybody is human, when one of them make a mistake I have to make them pay.”\

Bell will miss the first three games of the season due to a substance abuse suspension.

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell awaiting word on suspension appeal
by Marty Gitlin |

Steelers standout running back Le'Veon Bell has yet to hear back about his appeal to a three-game suspension for marijuana, ESPN has reported.

Bell has apologized for getting himself in trouble, stating that pot is not important to him and issuing self-blame.

"It's my own fault," he said Tuesday. "I learned my lesson and it made me a better man and person. It's going to make me a better player."

Bell is hoping that his reputation can eventually match his production, which has been significant. He rushed for 1,361 yards a year ago and caught a whopping 85 passes.

"Everybody has their own opinions about me, but that's fine," he said. "I can't make everybody like me and I can't make everybody hate me. I just have to continue to move forward and continue to be me. I know I'm a great person and a great football player, so I have to continue to be on and off the field."

Report: Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell will be suspended three games
by Igor Mello |

Two days after LeGarrette Blount received a one-game suspension, his former teammate, Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, will be suspended three games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Wednesday. Bell, who will lose four game checks, will appeal his suspension, per Schefter.

Bell, 23, was arrested on Aug. 20, 2014 after being pulled over by police while driving. After the arresting officer alleged a smell of marijuana coming from the car, Bell was charged with DUI and possession of the drug. Police found 20 grams of marijuana in the vehicle. Blount, his teammate at the time, was in the car and arrested as well.

Bell was second only to DeMarco Murray in rushing yards last season with 1,361 and eight touchdowns on the ground during the regular season. He also had 83 catches for 854 yards and three touchdowns.

The Steelers signed DeAngelo Williams in the offseason, who could be in line to start the first three games of the season in Bell's absence.

Report: Le'Veon Bell expected to receive two-game suspension
by Larry Hartstein |

Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is expected to be suspended for the first two games of the season as a result of his arrest last summer on marijuana possession and DUI charges, reports Bell agreed last week to enter a program for first-time offenders, and he'll be on probation for 15 months.

The website's report backs up a comment from Bell's attorney, who told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that entering the program can be considered an admission of guilt and thus result in a one- or two-game suspension.

Bell ranked second in the NFL last season with 1,361 rushing yards, and he added 83 catches for 854 yards, scoring 11 total touchdowns. He'll turn 23 next week.

Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert told the team will be prepared if Bell gets suspended.
