Early Wednesday afternoon, Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount had a brush with the law that resulted in an allegation of marijuana possession for both of them, and a DUI charge for Bell.
Later in the day, the Steelers left for a preseason game in Philadelphia. According to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Bell didn’t make the trip.
A second-round pick in 2013, Bell is expected to be the starting tailback this year. Other players will get opportunities to carry the ball in Bell’s absence.
