Le’Veon Bell getting second opinion on foot

We now know that the definition of “a while” means at least a week.

The Steelers just announced that running back Le’Veon Bell, who suffered a mid-foot sprain, is getting a second opinion.

“Le’Veon had his MRI on Tuesday, and we are still awaiting final diagnosis and results of a second opinion,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. “He will not participate this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs, and I will provide an update once we have received the official results of his tests over the next couple of days.”

That means in the short term, they’re back to relying on Issac Redman and Jonathan Dwyer, while they wait to see if Bell’s absence is going to be a longer one.
