Steelers believe Le'Veon Bell has Lisfranc injury. They are hoping will not require surgery but won't be sure until he gets it double checked.

Adam Schefter added: "Steelers rookie RB Le'Veon Bell is expected to be out six weeks with a Lisfranc injury."

Fantasy Impact: 

Ouch. This is very bad news for Bell owners. Six weeks doesn't completely kill his value, and depending on the discount, he may be worth a later pick. Isaac Redman was running ahead of Jonathan Dwyer for most of camp, but Dwyer looked good on Monday night while Redman sat out with a stinger. This could devolve into a RBBC with Dwyer, Redman and LaRod Stephens-Howling in on third downs. Dwyer and Redman are only worth late-round fliers until we get more clarity on the pecking order. We've moved Bell down to #49 in standard formats, but will revisit his projection as more information becomes available.
