The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to an 0-3 start for a number of reasons, and the lack of a running game has been one of the biggest culprits. With teams loading-up to pressure Ben Roethlisberger, the Pro Bowl quarterback has been pressured and sacked at a torrid pace that will have him on the shelf soon if the Steelers can’t find an efficient ground game.

Prior to this season, they went out and drafted Michigan state RB Le’Veon Bell, and immediately penciled him  in as the No. 1 back.

After an impressive training camp, they believed he was prepared to be their feature back, but a Lisfranc injury has sidelined him for the past two months.

Now, with the team desperate for a win, Bell will make his NFL debut this week:

With Felix Jones, Jonathan Dwyer & Isaac Redman all having failed to take hold of the No. 1 role, this is Bell’s job to lose going forward. Whether he’ll be enough to revive their season remains to be seen.

    Does anyone truly think this is going to make a difference? Please… the OL can’t block anyone, they get no movement at all… he will be lucky to get 1 yard per carry.
