Le’Veon Bell unsure why suspension was reduced to two games

AP

Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell doesn’t know why his suspension was reduced from three games to two.

He’s just glad it was.

“I just want to go out there and continue to practice with my team as long as I can,” Bell said, via Ralph Paulk of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I don’t want to go through all the details. I’m just glad I got the suspension reduced.”

Bell was initially given three games after being charged with DUI and marijuana possession, but may have gotten a break down to the DUI baseline because he admitted to having smoked the weed, effectively making it two penalties for one crime.

Either way, he’s made a good first impression on teammates, even as the team has wagged the finger of disapproval at him.

“Having him back a game earlier makes a difference for us,” guard Ramon Foster said. “He’s worked his butt off, and everyone sees the difference. Having that game back is what we needed. He fought for it and won it.”

Of course, he’s still going to miss the first two games, leaving the Steelers in the hands of veteran free agent DeAngelo Williams during that time.

  1. Though I’m a Patriots fan, I really like this guy. Just wish he didn’t play for the Steelers.

  2. Probably the best vision of all backs in the league and follows his blocks incredibly well.

    5. tie Bell/Lacy

  3. AP only played one game last year and is closing in on 30, certainly not the #1 RB anymore.

  4. He’s not sure why the suspension was reduced? Was he stoned? Oh…wait.

  5. Goodell follows the same procedure for appeals as he does handing down punishment. For the original suspension, Roger’s aim was a little better and he hit the ‘3 game’ ring, but when he threw the appeal dart, it was in the ‘2 game’ ring.

  6. I’ll take the Pats by a td in the opener if Garrapalo is at qb, 2 tds if Brady is playing

  7. I guess Kraft was right, if you appeal, they usually just reduce the penalty. Interesting.

    Love the way Bell plays, dude is just flat out fun to watch. Hope he has a good year.

  8. He’s not sure why the suspension was reduced? Was he stoned? Oh…wait.

    I can’t help but wonder what has happened to the Tebow dude? At one time while stupid his/her comments were borderline humorous, but lately his/her stuff is just plane stupid. Hey have you been letting your mother post while you were conjuring up new material?

    Knowing the NFL they never gave Leveon a bud of information.

  9. saw on his instagram, dude has 3% body fat…he is a ebast can’t wait for him to punished defending defenses this year.

  10. Steelers fans still crying about the playoffs? Bell was a beast in that game – best bench warmer I’ve ever seen. He played lights out watching the 18-player IR Ravens defense make mince meat out of pig face and that offense.

    Cheers!!!

    Anyone wondering why there were riots in Baltimore? This poster gives you an idea with his brilliant and in depth analysis.

    Please cite what Steeler fans were crying? Listen there is only room on this thread for one liar and the Tebow dude has that spot locked up. I guess you must want the name calling job….pig face?

  12. Look in the mirror. The resident steeler troll has a problem with the truth. Shocker.

    Ravens live rent free in your tiny little head fool who drools.

    Cheers!

  13. Nofool turns his head when his beloved stillers break the law, but likes to point out players from other teams who commit a crime. Trash talking Baltimore is very hypocritical seeing how Pissburgh is a mix between cesspool and landfill. Why did you move holy one?

  14. Steeler fans were crying their eyeballs out after watching their team lay the biggest egg is NFL history. But they were doing it in the car. Hardly a fan could be seen after the third quarter. What a wonderful night that was! It certainly numbed the pain of losing to the Patriots. Heck, I’m still celebrating the demise of the Steelers. 54 months and counting since the Pittsburgh Field Goals actually won a playoff. LOL!
