Pittsburgh Steelers rumors address Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount possibly getting suspended. This could be bad for Steelers fans and fantasy football owners, because it could sideline the two best running backs the team has. According to a report from ESPN on Monday (Aug. 25), head coach Mike Tomlin discussed the situation involving Bell and Blount. It became necessary because both were arrested on marijuana possession charges last week. That compounded the problems Bell had caused when he was charged with driving under the influence.
When asked whether his players would get suspended, Tomlin stated, “Everything’s on the table.” He went on to say that, “There are parts of this that are going to have to go through the legal process and the league review process. We'll just have to deal with it as that process unfolds." While both players have also apologized for their actions, that might be enough for the franchise or for the league office. It’s considered a fluid situation and its unknown when final decisions will be made on either player.
During a 31-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday (Aug. 21), both players saw extensive work. Blount ran for 32 yards on seven carries and caught three passes for 14 more yards. Bell had 23 yards rushing on nine carries and caught one pass for three yards. In the world of fantasy football, Le’Veon Bell has value to be selected in the first two rounds, while Blount is a later round pick. That’s why these Pittsburgh Steelers rumors will need to be paid close attention in case either gets suspended.
