It was announced revealed this week that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell suffered a Lisfranc foot injury during Monday’s loss to the Washington Redskins. This was just the latest setback for Bell, who was drafted in the second-round in the 2013 NFL Draft. He missed the first preseason game with a knee injury, and despite being banged-up for the majority of his first NFL training camp, Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin is confident he’ll be healthy soon enough:

“We are optimistic and encouraged how (the situation) has developed in the last 48 to 72 hours,” Tomlin said Thursday at a news conference. ”I’m not concerned at all. You play football, you get hurt.”

 

The Steelers were counting on Bell to be a workhorse back, but are left scrambling for answers since every back behind him on Pittsburgh’s depth chart except for Jonathan Dwyer, are suffering from their own injuries.It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Steelers work the waiver wire for a serviceable back once final cuts are made.
