Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Running back LeVeon Bell practiced with the Steelers Monday, ending an absence from the field that stretched through the team’s offseason program and all their work this summer.

Bell described himself as “a little winded” after going through the session, but coach Mike Tomlin had a more positive take on how Bell fared in his return to the field. Tomlin said during a Tuesday press conference, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, that he thinks Bell is in “great physical condition” after seeing him get “back on the moving train” on Monday.

Fantasy Impact:

The story said Bell may not have his usual role in Week 1. Tomlin said they plan to watch Bell at practice to assess how much he'll play and that the team is "comfortable" with Conner getting work.

Scouting Report

Week 3 at Chicago Bears

Bell was back to his usual workload last week after a slow Week 1, carrying the ball 27 times and catching 4 passes. It was good for just 91 total yards (87 rushing, 4 receiving), but bigger days are ahead. He looked more like his old self last week. The Bears have a good front-seven but are down to their third-string middle linebacker. He's going to get his 25 touches and should produce solid numbers. Bell is an easy start as an RB1.
