Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell has a Lisfranc foot
injury will miss 6-8 weeks.
Bell underwent an MRI on Tuesday after he was hurt in the first
quarter of a 24-13 loss to Washington on Monday night.
Bell rushed for nine yards on four carries against Washington in
his professional debut. He sat out the preseason opener against the
New York Giants with soreness in his left knee.
The Steelers took Bell 42nd overall in the draft last April,
hoping he could become the feature back the team needed after
Rashard Mendenhall left in free agency. Bell is competing with
Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer for the starting job.
