Bell likely to start the season on the sidelines, again.
The Pittsburgh Steelers might be without their superstar running back, Le'Veon Bell, for the first four games of the upcoming season, due to a missed drug test. Not a failed drug test, a missed drug test.
Many Steelers fans, and fantasy football owners, remember that Bell served a 2-game suspension at the start of last season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
According to ESPN's Dan Graziano, Bell skipped one of his drug tests and the 4-game suspension seems imminent, but it hasn't been announced yet because the appeal process is still going on.
"No date for Bell's appeal has been set, though it's expected that it will be heard before the start of the regular season. If it's not overturned, he would miss the first four games of the season."
When and if the suspension is announced, Pittsburgh will turn to 33-year old DeAngelo Williams who was a solid alternative for the Steelers when called upon last year.
