Steelers Bell Suspended Three Games

CBS Sports.com – Two days after LeGarrette Blount received a one-game suspension, his former teammate, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell will be suspended three gamesĀ for violating the league’s substance abuse policy, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN on Wednesday. Bell will appeal his suspension, per Schefter.

Bell, 23, was arrested on Aug. 20, 2014 after being pulled over by police while driving. After the arresting officer alleged a smell of marijuana coming from the car, Bell was charged with DUI and possession of the drug. Police found 20 grams of marijuana in the vehicle. Blount, his teammate at the time, was in the car and arrested as well.

Bell was second only to DeMarco Murray in rushing yards last season with 1,361 and eight touchdowns on the ground during the regular season. He also had 83 catches for 854 yards and three touchdowns.

The Steelers signed DeAngelo Williams in the offseason, who could be in line to start the first three games of the season in Bell’s absence.
