Le'Veon Bell suffered a concussion
Tuesday, December 3, 2013, 8:52am
A violent goal-line collision in a 22-20 loss to the Ravens left Le'Veon Bell concussed, but the Steelers' rookie running back did some running Monday and is hopeful of playing Sunday against the visiting Dolphins.
"I'm going to take it day by day and see where we're at," Bell said. "The goal is obviously to play, but if [I'm] not able to, I'm not able to."
Bell and Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith rammed helmets when they met near the goal line as the former tried to score on a 1-yard touchdown run. Bell fell forward and into the end zone even though the force of the collision caused his helmet to pop off.
The played was ruled a TD at first but was reversed because his helmet came off before crossing the goal line. He doesn't remember the hit but said he hasn't experienced side effects. Speaking Tuesday, Tomlin said Bell "looked good." His fate is in the hands of NFL protocol, however. The Steelers would likely rely on a committee of Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer in Week 14.

"I need to speed things up and I need to find a way to get open,'' said Cameron. "I need to try to get in there and do more. I need to step up and make plays and do whatever I can to help this team. That's my goal.''
In the past two games, Cameron has totaled just 33 yards on seven carries with a long catch of eight yards, and no TDs. Since Jason Campbell has taken over the past three games, Cameron has 11 catches for 114 yards (38 average) and no touchdowns. He flashed open early in the end zone on the Browns' first trip inside the red zone last week, but Campbell rolled right and missed him.
Cameron's recent lack of production is in stark contrast to his first seven games, when he caught 45 passes for 515 yards (73.5 average) with six touchdowns. He first said there were some chemistry issues with Campbell but mostly backed off that saying it was on him to wiggle free of coverage and that defenses are giving him more attention. It's likely a combo of both, though, and this week's matchup is a pretty tough one on top of all that against a good Steelers pass defense.
