Rookie running back Le’Veon Bell, the team’s second-round draft pick, missed Saturday night’s preseason opener against the Giants with soreness in his knee, but plans on being back on the practice field Monday afternoon when the team resumes work.
“I will be practicing today,” said Bell. “It’s just a little sore. I am fine, though.”
Bell is competing for the starting running back spot, along with Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer. While he missed the team's first preseason game, we still think Bell comes away with the job, and we think he's in the best spot of the rookie RBs.
