Mike Tomlin confirms Le'Veon Bell will return in Week 4


The was some belief that the Pittsburgh Steelers would be without their rookie running back Le’Veon Bell for at least four to six weeks, but it looks like the second-round pick will return a bit sooner than expected.

On Monday night, there were reports that Bell would make his regular season debut during this weekend’s match up in London, and on Tuesday head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed that Bell would be on the field when the Steelers take on the Minnesota Vikings overseas.

Pittsburgh has a bye week in Week Five after their London trip, which was the reasoning for the Week Six target for Bell’s return, but the team felt that it would be better to get him work as soon as possible and they are desperate for a win so it can’t hurt.

The Steelers offense looked much improved in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears, but turnovers really killed the team. Now that they have Heath Miller and Le’Veon Bell back, we could finally see an offense worth watching and a team that has notched a win.

    If you are counting on Bell to be the savior of the running game, you are sadly mistaken…Jim Brown in his prime couldn’t run behind this OL.
