On Thursday night, the Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Baltimore Ravens. On a goal line stand, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell was trying to extend the football into the end zone when he was hit so hard his helmet flew off. Bell then laid their with his helmet off knocked out. To make matters worse, it wasn’t ruled a touchdown because his helmet came off.
“I don’t remember the exact play,” Bell said, via the team’s official website. “I didn’t remember it when it first happened. Once I came off the field I didn’t really know I had scored. Then they told me I did; then they told me it wasn’t a touchdown. I wasn’t aware of what was going on at the time because I got hit. I can’t really remember what happened.”
Despite having a serious head injury, Bell is looking to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Bell would have to go through the concussion protocol before he can play though.
“I feel good. I felt like I started to feel better the next day,” said Bell. “After the hit I was out of it a little bit, but the next day I woke up and was feeling better and have felt progressively better each day.”
