Video: Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell suffers gruesome injury

Pittsburgh Steelers star running back Le’Veon Bell suffered a gruesome-looking injury in today’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals and was down on the ground for a few minutes before being carted to the locker room.

CBS’ on-field crew has since reported that Bell is being examined for a right knee injury, but it’s not looking good. Granted, teammate Ben Roethlisberger suffered a similar-looking injury and only missed a few weeks with a sprain, but running backs take a lot more punishment.

Steelers fans will thus cross their fingers until official word on Bell’s injury is released. DeAngelo Williams will handle lead back duties for the rest of the game.
