Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell suffered a gruesome injury during the 2015 NFL season and missed the last ten games of the year. He has been on the road to recovery and it look like he could be healthy in the very near future.
Bell was filmed doing some pass-catching drills during the Steelers’ OTAs on Tuesday just six months following surgery on his MCL and PCL. He looked like he has been healing up pretty well.

Le’Veon Bell spoke with reporters at the practice and said that he knows he needs to protect himself this year. He then went on to say that the Cincinnati Bengals, whom the team was playing when Bell got injured, were deliberately going low on him.
“The whole (Bengals) team was really out there trying to like twist my ankles and do little dirty stuff in between the piles,” Bell said. “I just know that when I’m on the sidelines I can’t expect somebody to just push me out of bounds … I have to really protect myself.”
Bell was doing well to open the 2015 season as he had rushed for nearly 600 yards and three touchdowns through the first six games.
