Suspension aside, team pleased with Le'Veon Bell's recovery

Tribune Review - [Full Article]

The Steelers surely are concerned with the possibility of not having running back LeVeon Bell for the first month of the season, and for good reason, as he continues to wait to hear the results of the the appeal of his four-game suspension for violation the NFL's drug policy.

As for being concerned about Bell's surgically repaired knee, there are far fewer worries, and that's been solidified through the first three days of training camp at St. Vincent College.

Bell is less than nine months removed from an ugly knee injury he suffered in November against the Bengals that tore his his MCL and PCL, requiring surgery and keeping him out of the final two months of the season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Through the early stages of camp, you'd be hard-pressed to tell that Bell is recovering from any injury let alone a severe knee injury. You can lump offensive coordinator Todd Haley into that group of being pleasantly surprised, the story all said. That's good news for potential owners and it looks like Bell's injury recovery isn't a cause for a lot of concern. But as the story said, a possible four-game suspension awaits, and we've dropped Bell down our list as a result.
