Roethlisburger Isn’t Counting On Bell

Steelers_Ben_Roethlisburger_2013Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that rookie running back Le’Veon Bell is on track to make his regular season debut in London against the Minnesota Vikings this week, a return that some are looking to as a way for the Steelers running game in gear after three dismal weeks.

Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger isn’t so sure that Bell will provide that boost because he isn’t so sure that Bell is going to wind up playing this week. During an appearance on 93.7 The Fan, Roethlisberger said that Bell’s track record makes it hard to count on him because he doesn’t know whether or not Bell’s doing everything in his power to stay on the field.
