All-around effort by Steelers RB Bell puts him in record book


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell was held to just 47 yards on 20 carries Sunday in Atlanta.

That's the bad news. The good news is that he scored on a 1-yard run with time running out in the first half and added a 13-yard bolt into the end zone early in the fourth to provide a two-toucdown lead. He also caught five of his seven targets for 72 yards.

The big numbers allowed Bell to become the all-time Steelers single-season leader in overall yards. He surpassed fellow running back Barry Foster, who established the mark in 1992.

Bell will add to his total next Sunday against Kansas City.


Bengals have no answers Steelers' Le'Veon Bell in Week 14


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell ran 26 times for 185 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh's rout of the Bengals 42-21. He added six catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.

It was Bell's second-highest rushing total of the season, when re ran for 204 yards against the Titans. He now has 1,231 yards rushing and 693 yards receiving, putting him 76 yards away from 2,000 total yards on the year. 

Bell and the Steelers will take on the Falcons in Week 15. 


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell seeking first-offender deal


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell on Wednesday applied to enter a first-offender's program for the marijuana possession and DUI charges against him, reports WPXI.com. If Bell's tentative deal with the prosecutor is approved by a judge, he'd get 15 months' probation, a 60-day driver's license suspension, a drug and alcohol evaluation and group DUI therapy, the report said.

Bell and then-teammate LeGarrette Blount were arrested Aug. 20 after a motorcycle officer smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle they were in, according to the website. Blount's preliminary hearing is Dec. 10.

Bell's attorney told the website his client could face a two-game NFL suspension next season.


Steelers not concerned about Le'Veon Bell's massive workload


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/2/2014) Steelers second-year running back Le'Veon Bell has touched the ball 64 times over his past two games, but coach Mike Tomlin isn't concerned about that workload. Bell (6-1, 244) is "built for it," Tomlin told reporters.

Bell has 281 touches through 12 games after getting 289 touches in 13 games as a rookie. Bell visits the Bengals on Sunday.


Steelers' Le'Veon Bell totals 254 yards, touchdown in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell continued his career-high season, running for 95 yards on 21 carries and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Saints. Bell also added eight catches for 159 yards. 

In the first half, Bell rushed for 16 yards, pushing his season total for rushing yards over 1,000. It's the first time in Bell's short career he has surpassed 1,000 yards. It's the first time a Steelers running back has surpassed 1,000 yards rushing since Rashard Mendenhall ran for 1,273 yards in 2010. 

Bell now has 1,689 total yards on the year. He will look to stay hot next week against the Bengals. 


Le'Veon Bell rips Titans for career-high 204 rushing yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2014) The Steelers were committed to establishing their running game Monday, so they handed the ball to Le'Veon Bell on their first six plays from scrimmage. Bell gained 37 yards, setting up a field goal, and the rest of the night brought more of the same.

Bell finished with a career-high 204 yards on 33 carries (6.2 ypc), including a 5-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter in which he lunged for the goal line. Bell caught two of four targets for 18 yards.

This was the fifth 200-yard rushing game in Steelers history. Bell finished 19 yards shy of Willie Parker's franchise record of 223.

Bell, who had rushed for 56 yards over his previous two games combined, notched his first rushing score since the opener and is up to four touchdowns overall. He's on a bye Week 12.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell struggles in defeat to Jets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell has hit the skids. He rushed for just 36 yards on 11 attempts Sunday against the Jets, giving him 56 yards on 21 carries over the last two games.

Bell, who had rushed for 691 yards in the previous seven games, did tie a season-high with eight receptions in the loss and set a team single-season record for most catches by a running back in the process, but managed only 33 yards receiving. He also failed to score a touchdown.

Pittsburgh is set for the big stage as it plays at Tennessee next Monday night.


Steelers' rushing attack held in check in Week 9 win


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Steelers running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount combined for just 43 rushing yards on 20 carries in Pittsburgh's 43-23 win over the Ravens in Week 9.

Bell managed just 20 yards on 10 carries but did manage to secure one of Ben Roethlisberger's six touchdown passes while catching five balls for 38 yards. Blount could only muster 23 yards on 10 carries and didn't factor into the passing game at all. With Roethlisberger unlikely to keep delivering six-score performances, the rushing attack should get a chance to get more involved in the future. However, Bell and Blount face a tough challenge in the Jets in Week 10.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell contributes 148 yards on Week 8 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell took a backseat to brilliant quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on Sunday against Indianapolis, but he certainly played a role in the victory.

Bell rushed for 46 yards in the first quarter and finished with 92 on 24 carries while adding six catches for 56 yards. He was, however held scoreless.

He will try to find his way into the end zone next Sunday night against AFC North rival Baltimore.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell back in game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell did not take long to return to the Sunday game against Indianapolis after leaving in the second quarter with an ankle injury. He returned to the game soon thereafter.

Steelers RB Bell questionable to return with ankle injury


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) A right ankle injury sustained in the second quarter has Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell deemed questionable to return to the Sunday game against Indianapolis.

Outlook for Le'Veon Bell continues to improve


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/21/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell averaged 4.7 receptions per game through his first six games, but because he was involved in the passing game only intermittently as a rookie, you had reason to wonder if you could rely on him for that long-term.

But then he went and caught eight passes for 88 yards and a touchdown against the Texans in Week 7, putting him second among all running backs with 36 receptions, behind only Matt Forte (who remains in a class of his own). In PPR leagues, he's also third among running backs, behind Forte and DeMarco Murray, in Fantasy points to date.

Even better, his touchdown came from the 2-yard line -- a situation where the Steelers may have gone to LeGarrette Blount earlier in the season. Only one of Blount's seven carries even came in Texans' territory in this one.

Bell's touchdown total seven weeks into the season may be disappointing, but in terms of his receiving ability and role on offense, the verdict is in. If we were re-drafting today, he might be one of the first five running backs off the board.


Le'Veon Bell makes Steelers' history on MNF


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Running back Le'Veon Bell totaled 145 yards from scrimmage Monday against the Texans, becoming the first Steelers player to surpass 100 yards from scrimmage in the first seven games of a season. Bell joined Dallas' DeMarco Murray as the only players to accomplish the feat this year.

Bell caught eight passes for 88 yards and a touchdown and ran 12 times for 57 yards (4.8 ypc). He broke free from linebacker Brian Cushing in the second quarter, turning a short reception into a 43-yard gain. Right before halftime Bell exploited a blown coverage for a 2-yard score.

Bell's eight targets ranked second on the team behind Antonio Brown's 13. Bell, who surprisingly has only two touchdowns this year, plays the Colts in Week 8.


Le'Veon Bell waives right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell waived his right to a preliminary hearing on marijuana possession and driving under the influence charges, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. He also paid a parking ticket at a brief court appearance Wednesday.

Judge Richard Opiela ordered Bell to undergo an on-the-spot drug and alcohol evaluation.

"It has nothing to do with Mr. Bell and everything to do with the charges he's facing," Opiela said.

Bell and fellow Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount were arrested after a traffic stop in late August. The police officer smelled marijuana coming from a vehicle the men were in with a female friend. Police charged Bell with prohibited acts and driving under the influence. Prosecutors added an additional charge of general impairment at the hearing.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell rings up another strong effort


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Steelers featured back ran Le'Veon Bell ran well Sunday in Cleveland when he had a chance. But a huge deficit limited those opportunities.

Bell finished with 82 yards on 18 carries and added four receptions for 23 yards. But he had just 10 attempts on the ground after the first quarter and two in the fourth.

The Week 6 performance did give him 542 yards rushing on the season. He has exceeded 100 yards of total offense in every game. He will attempt to do the same against Houston next Monday night.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell seeking bigger workload Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/9/2014) Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell is hoping for more carries Sunday in Cleveland than he received in Week 5 against Jacksonville.

Bell made the most of his 15 attempts in the defeat of the Jaguars, rushing for 82 yards. Pittsburgh opted for more passing, however, when it worked its way into the red zone.

"I feel like a lot of runners in the NFL; the more they get the ball, they more they get into a rhythm," Bell told NFL.com. "The better (rhythm) I get, the game kind of slows down for you. You get into kind of a zone."

The Browns rank 30th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per rush at 5.1 and tied for 29th in yards allowed on the ground per game at 152.5. Those struggles could result in Bell receiving more opportunities in Week 6.


Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell surpasses 100 total yards again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell surpassed 100 total yards again during a 17-9 win Week 5 at Jacksonville. Bell had a team-high 82 rushing yards on 15 carries, while adding 36 yards on five receptions.

With his 118 yards, Bell became the first player in franchise history to post 100-plus yards in five straight games to open the season, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. His 688 total yards are the most ever for a Steelers' player through five games, topping running back Jerome Bettis' 610 yards in 1996.

The Steelers are back in action Week 6 at Cleveland.


Weak second half dooms Le'Veon Bell to Week 4 mediocrity


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Steelers featured back Le'Veon Bell finally came back down to earth Sunday against Tampa Bay after three strong performances to open the season.

Bell was held to 28 yards on 13 carries after the first quarter and 11 yards on eight attempts following intermission. He finished with 63 yards on 19 carries and no touchdowns, though he did contribute six receptions for 46 yards. He was also a victim of his own emotion, running for 16 yards on one play late in the first quarter and losing 15 on the same play for taunting.

He will try to keep his cool and improve his numbers next Sunday in Jacksonville.


Le'Veon Bell rips Panthers for 157 total yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell ripped Carolina for a career-high 147 yards on 21 carries in a Week 3 blowout win. Bell busted an 81-yard run in the third quarter that was the longest Steelers' run in 44 years.

Bell added two catches on four targets for 10 yards. It was his second 100-yard rushing game this year, third of his career. He averaged 7.0 yards per carry.

Bell is up to 315 rushing yards heading into Week 4 against Tampa Bay.


Le'Veon Bell held to 11 carries Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell performed well Thursday despite limited carries.

Bell gained 59 rushing yards on 11 attempts. He also caught five passes for 48 yards during the contest. Bell saw most of his work early, and fell out of the game plan once the Ravens pulled ahead 17-6. At that point, Bell contributed two rushes and two catches over the rest of the game. Bell looked impressive when he got the ball in his hands, but the Steelers had to abandon the run game for much of the fourth quarter. 

Bell will take on the Panthers Week 3. 


Stud Steelers ready to go Week 2


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2014) The Steelers will go into Week 2 with all of their stud offensive players. 

A number of important players entered the week listed as probable on the injury report. Nearly all of them are active Week 2 against the Steelers. Le'Veon Bell, Antonio Brown, Heath Miller, Ben Roethlisberger, Cody Wallace and Markus Wheaton were all cleared to play. While they were all on the injury report, only Wallace was dealing with an injury. The rest missed practice for non-injury reasons. 

On defense, the Steelers will have Brett Keisel, Steve McLendon, Troy Polamalu, Ike Taylor, Shamarko Thomas and Vince Williams. Wallace was dealing with an ankle issue, but the rest were listed for non-injury reasons. 


Le'Veon Bell 'can't wait' to face Ravens


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell, who rolled up 197 yards from scrimmage Week 1, said he "can't wait" for Thursday's game in Baltimore. The Ravens were stout against the run Sunday, holding the Bengals to 3.0 yards per carry.

"I can’t wait to get to Baltimore and see what these guys are really about," Bell told the Steelers' website. "They are going to play tough. They know what we like to do; we know what they like to do. Both teams are similar. It’s going to be a good game."


Le'Veon Bell shows versatility in piling up big numbers Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Steelers emerging running back Le'Veon Bell shredded the Browns on the ground and through the air Sunday at Heinz Field.

Bell rushed for 109 yards and a score on 21 carries and added a career-high 88 yards on six receptions in the victory. He became the first Pittsburgh player to exceed 100 yards receiving and 50 rushing since Amos Zereoue achieved it in November 2002.

The second-year back, who managed 45 receptions a year ago, gave his team a 24-3 lead midway through the second quarter on a play that accentuated his quickness and elusiveness. He bolted through the middle, cut right to avoid a tackle and raced 38 yards into the end zone.

Like most of his teammates, Bell was limited in the second half. He managed 40 yards on 10 carries after halftime. His next game will be at Baltimore on Thursday night.


Le'Veon Bell no sure bet for big production against Browns


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is a bit of an unkown heading into the 2014 season. His talent is unquestioned after he racked up 860 yards and eight touchdowns in 244 carries last season. But his role in 2014 has yet to be fully defined, which makes his status in the Sunday opener against Cleveland a little sketchy.

The addition of LeGarrette Blount in the backfield could take significant playing time away from Bell. After all, Blount is coming off a sensational down-the-stretch performance in 2013.

Bell could take advantage of a Browns run defense that proved mediocre in the preseason and susceptible to long gains. Despite catching 45 passes for 399 yards last season, Bell managed just three receptions for 18 yards against the Browns. With lone premier receiving threat Antonio Brown being covered by Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden, the Steelers might look to Bell to supplement the passing game, which bodes well in PPR leagues.

Look for Bell to put up decent numbers Sunday, but his playng time must be monitored. The Steelers did not sign Blount to stand all afternoon on the sideline.


Le'Veon Bell, LeGarrette Blount will play Week 1 as expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2014) Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount will play Sunday against the Browns despite their recent arrests on marijuana possession charges, reports NFL.com.
