Will the Steelers face the Ravens on Saturday minus the services of running back LeVeon Bell?
"It's too early to tell, but it doesn't look good," one source inside the organization told NFL Media's Aditi Kinkhabwala.
A Monday morning MRI on Bell's hyperextended right knee revealed no ligament damage, per ESPN's Adam Schefter, who reported that it will be "difficult" for Pittsburgh's star running back to suit up for this weekend's AFC playoff bout with Baltimore.
Jason La Canfora is also reporting Bell is 'likely out' for this weekend's game. Josh Harris is next up for the Steelers at RB, in what is a very tough matchup against the Ravens who are ranked third in allowing fantasy points to RBs. Dri Archer could also see more work, and the team is very close to signing free agent Ben Tate. Teams have had success throwing against the Ravens so that may be how Pittsburgh attacks this week if Bell is in fact out.

Ben Tate Wildcard game vs. Ravens
Ben Tate was signed by the Steelers earlier this week with LeVeon Bell likely out against the Ravens. But he will have had just three practices to prepare for this game, meaning his role will be limited. I wouldn't expect anything more than a short-yardage carry or two for Tate in this game, with rookie Josh Harris getting the majority of the carries.
