Le'Veon Bell to report to Steelers during Week 7

Le'Veon Bell to report to Steelers during Week 7

There finally appears to be some, Bell is expected to make his return to the practice field during their Week 7 bye in time to play against the Cleveland Browns on October 28, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

Earl Thomas flipped off his own bench after he broke his leg in a game between the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. But he said he hopes they can respect their business and plans to talk with the team upon his arrival.

Bell issued his vow on Instagram in the comments section of ESPN's post about Thomas being carted off the field.

The Steelers are exploring trade options for Bell, though Bell believes he can stay with the team. Thomas' injury could make Bell more resolute in his decision. Bell has been their workhorse tailback in the last few years as he has established himself as arguably the best running back in the league while being one of the primary factors in the offense.

The thought process from Bell's camp is to minimize the wear-and-tear on the dual-threat running back before he heads into free agency after the season.

Since Bell can not negotiate a long-term deal until the end of the season, he'd still be taking on the injury risk if he agreed to a trade. The Steelers are reportedly seeking a second-round pick and a good veteran player.

The Steelers are hopeful of getting more than a third-round pick for Bell - they would get a late 2020 third-round pick as compensation for him leaving as a free-agent, in all likelihood - and would prefer to deal him to the NFC, sources said.

The way Bell's holdout story contrasts with Thomas' perfectly illustrates why he has taken such a position and will continue to do so.
