Report: Steelers believe Le'Veon Bell has Lisfranc injury

Since sustaining a foot injury in Monday's preseason game against the Redskins, Steelers rookie running back Le'Veon Bell has had an MRI on Tuesday and is seeking a second opinion today.

Last night, Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette tweeted that Bell could be out for "awhile."

Today, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports has tweeted that the Steelers believe Bell has Lisfranc, but they hope he won't need surgery.

Until more is known about the extent of injury, I wouldn't draft Bell. If he is able to avoid surgery, however, it's possible that he returns at some point during the season.

[Update: Jason La Canfora says Steelers project Bell to miss 6-8 weeks with rest.]
