A rumor circulated on Twitter today regarding Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell and the possibility that he could be suspended for skipping a drug test, but we decided not to mention it because it was, after all, just a rumor. However, Bell was asked about the rumor this afternoon, and we’ll now pass along his denial.
“I haven’t missed any drug tests, failed any drug tests. I am fine,” Bell said, via Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.
Bell said there are no truth at all to the rumors.
NFL players are required to make themselves available to the league’s drug testing program and can be suspended for failing to appear for drug tests. But Bell says any rumor that he did that is wrong.
