The injury suffered by Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell has had plenty of uncertainty surrounding it. Initially, there was belief that Bell had suffered a Lisfranc injury, but those rumors were reportedly squashed and many thought Bell could return to the field soon.

However, now it appears that Bell’s mid-foot sprain is indeed the Lisfranc variety and he could be out for at least a month.

The report comes from the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

It really has been a rough start to Bell’s NFL career, which is costing him plenty of early playing time.

The Steelers were doing everything in their power to hand Bell the starting running back job, but his inability to stay healthy has forced him to miss the opportunity.

Without Bell, the Steelers are rolling with Isaac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer in the backfield.

You would have to imagine that the Steelers could be wondering what their running game would be like right now if they would have pulled the trigger and drafted former Alabama Crimson Tide standout Eddie Lacy.

    That last point will be relevant as soon as teams draft a player in the second round for their performance in the first game of thier rookie season. I dare you to try and label Bell a bust right now.
