The injury looked bad. The news may not be.
Per a league source, the Steelers are optimistic (for now) about the condition of running back Le’Veon Bell’s knee. He exited the stadium during the game for evaluation at a nearby hospital, and the source tells PFT that the initial indication is that the ACL is intact.
The team currently hopes it’s only an MCL injury, which likely would knock Bell out for a game or more, but which wouldn’t end his season.
Bell’s knew was twisted awkwardly during a sideline tackle, but he was able to walk to the cart that carried him to the locker room.
