RB LeVeon Bell missed the first preseason game with a bruised knee. His only action with the Steelers, other than in early training camp practices, came in the second preseason game when he carried four times for 9 yards and left with a right mid-foot sprain. He did not resume practice until last week, and now says his foot has recovered "100 percent."
Tackle Marcus Gilbert said, "He's an Adrian Peterson-type -- I don't want to put him in the same category yet, but he has that type of playmaking ability to break tackles and get yards after he's hit. Le'Veon is a special back we're glad to have back."
If Bell is truly 100 percent, he could be in line for feature back type touches on Sunday in a pretty good matchup with the Vikings. It's tough to get excited about a rookie coming off of an injury who is playing his first game on the road behind a patchwork offensive line.
