Pittsburgh Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were suspended last week, prior to the team’s Week 3 preseason match up against the Philadelphia Eagles.
The players suited up and took the field for the Steelers despite their arrest which came after 20 grams of marijuana was located in the Camaro driven by Bell, and they are not expected to face a suspension from the league this season.
However, the Steelers organization could still choose to punish both players.
According to Scott Brown of ESPN.com, the team is still considering suspensions for both of their top two running backs.
Mike Tomlin says a team suspension is still on table for Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount.

If the team does decide to suspend both players, it will interesting to see whether or not they both receive the same punishment and for just how long it would be.
