Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell cleared to run on treadmill

AP

The Steelers might not want to put running back Le’Veon Bell on any kind of timetable, but he just crossed a significant threshold today.

Bell just posted a short clip of himself running on a treadmill, in what appears to be a device to keep the weight off his surgically repaired knee, saying he was “clear to run.”

Of course, that’s a long way from a full comeback, but it is also March 1, so that’s a good sign.

Bell suffered a torn MCL and PCL on Nov. 1 against the Bengals, and the Steelers are going to give him plenty of time to make sure he’s well. The PCL, one of the lesser-known but important CLs, has been a complicated rehab for players in the past.

Bell had nearly 700 combined yards in six games last year before he was lost for the season.

  1. As long as he isn’t smoking marijuana as part of his pain management schedule, he should be back at the beginning of the season. I’m alright with him staying on the shelf until he is 100% go, though. Williams has played well enough in his absence to be relied upon and a healthy Bell at the end of the season and into the playoffs is more helpful than a Bell trying to play at 85% and getting reinjured.

  2. That whole team has been running on a treadmill since January 2011. Huffing and puffing and going absolutely nowhere. LOL.

  3. Running, catching, blocking and locker room, he’s the most complete back in football. Take your time and just get yourself healthy, Mr. Bell.

    Go Steelers!

  4. I love it. The Steelers live in the minds of the haters. It’s wonderful.

    Let’s see: Swept and go to the playoffs

    or

    End up 5 and 11 and don’t go to the playoffs.

    Hmmm/sarc LOL

  5. Bell gained more yards rushing than the entire buzzards team! He’ll Landry jones probably passed for more yds than that so called elite Qb who got schooled by old noodle arm manning!! What a joke of a franchise!!

  6. Just think that the packers passed on him twice to select eddy lazy, aka the hamburgler!

    It’s like you literally know nothing about football. Bell was off the board when the pack took their #2 pick at spot 61. However, your team did pass on him, not once, not twice, but three times. They actually drafted C.P with their third pick. LOL. Apparently your unhealthy obsession with all things packers has clouded your cognitive abilities.

  7. Just. Stay. Healthy.

    For god’s sake. He’s a top 5 QB, but Ben no longer has the come back mojo as far as I’m concerned. To get to the SB, need Ben, Brown, and Bell healthy ALL YEAR.

  8. Ironically if you add up the stats for the last 3 seasons you get:

    A.P – 2751 yards and 21 T.D’s
    Bell – 2777 yards and 19 T.D’s
    Lacy – 3075 yards and 23 T.D’s

    Numbers don’t lie….although trolls do.

  9. Bell has been the best addition to the Steelers in years. Every year, he gives the excuse making fans a big out when they get clownstomped in the playoffs. Just look at last year’s beatdown against the Ravens. All the fans scurried out of the stadium before the 3rd quarter ended so they could get to their computers and start making excuses, which they did. LOL.

  10. That team that wears the purple and black were 5-11 with no playoff appearance and an individual taking a 10 game vacation for doing something he shouldn’t have been doing is taking up a roster spot.

  11. And the obsession with the Ravens continues. Ravens continue to live rent free in Steelers’ fans tooth deprived heads.

    Reality is never an excuse ….. Except when the Ravens sucked it was because of injuries…. Just like Bell’s. Even a good troll should know you can’t have it both ways.
    Also I don’t mind disappointed fans leaving early to be the traffic…. At least they can’t mill around a statue to a murder.

  13. And the obsession with the Ravens continues. Ravens continue to live rent free in Steelers’ fans tooth deprived heads.

    Tooth deprived heads? Someone living in the murder capital of the US and the scene of out of control rioting should never disparage others dentally challenged which I dare say is better the mentally change vermin that inhabit the charm, but do you expect of a populace who’s hero is a convicted felon.

  14. The only excuses I heard last year were from the buzzards after the a$$ whipping they got from the patriots. Deflated footballs!! Couldn’t win on the field so make up a deflated football excuse and call and tell the colts! The buzzards are an embarrassment to the nfl. Next time you leave in the middle of the night do us all a favor and move to Russia !!!

  15. Our friend who is obsessed with that QB from down South and that team that wears black and gold is getting frantic.

  16. Le’Veon Bell is one of the best in the NFL. That’s obvious, we just need to see him run a full season.
