Steelers' Le'Veon Bell expected to miss Week 1

Steelers' Le'Veon Bell expected to miss Week 1

Roethlisberger says he is ready to go with James Conner, a second-year back who played his college football at Pitt, in the backfield.

"I just felt confident that he was gonna come", Pouncey said Wednesday, "But now that he didn't, obviously it's Le'Veon over the Steelers, and we're the Steelers and we're going to play as the Steelers".

"In the ultimate team sport, we've created a league of individuals", guard Ramon Foster said. Even if he does finally break the hold out and show up in time for Sunday's game, it's going to cause problems for Pittsburgh if everybody in their locker room is ticked off at him.

"Honestly it's a little selfish".

Bell is holding out for a new, lucrative long-term contract, but has yet to reach an agreement with the team and will continue to sit out until something is worked out.

One man told me that he was still not open about his sexuality to his parents but today's judgment had inspired him to come out. He said, "We have to vanquish prejudice, embrace inclusion, and ensure equal rights", according to LiveLaw.

"So I'd like to say that the linemen are more important than any skill position player, including myself, on this team".

"The business part. I get it".

It appears that numerous Steelers' players expected to see Bell there, and several national media outlets reported the plan was for Bell to show up at some point this week - many indicating that he'd arrive prior to a Wednesday morning team meeting. They're now letting him know that. "There are so many guys [here] who are sacrificing everything". Each week Bell skips, he forfeits $852,941. We know right now his days in Pittsburgh are precarious at best. "We'll worry about him in Week 2", Pouncey said, per the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Tim Benz.

The Cincinnati Bengals don't have much of anything going on ahead of their Week 1 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
