With kickoff for Week 14 just around the corner, teams are beginning to roll out their lists of official inactives. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, their running game will be able to keep rolling with the news that starting running back Le’Veon Bell is active and he will start against the Miami Dolphins.
Bell was cleared to practice in full earlier this week, so the news isn’t a big surprise and it shows that he was able to avoid any setbacks over the weekend.
It was on Thanksgiving night against the Baltimore Ravens that Bell was hit with a vicious helmet-to-helmet blow that left him helmetless and unconscious on the field. Bell later admitted that he did not remember the play after suffering a concussion, but it looks like he was able to pass all of the league mandated concussion tests.
Pittsburgh needs a win over Miami to remain relevant in the title picture, so having Bell back on the field will help in a big way.
