Found August 12, 2013 on Steel City Blitz:
The conspiracy theorist in me is wondering aloud. Pittsburgh Steelers’ rookie running back Le’Veon Bell was scheduled to play Saturday might but didn’t with a bum knee. Nothing to be concerned about we were told and sure enough, Bell was on the practice field today running with the first team almost exclusively.

Steelers go down in first preseason game; the good and not so good

Courtesy of the Post Gazette. The first preseason game is as exciting as it can be depressing and irritating. It’s just par for the course in any year and this seasons version was no different.

Steelers Kelvin Beachum Wasn’t The Center Of Attention Against The Giants

I was pretty sure that Pittsburgh Steelers second-year offensive linemen Kelvin Beachum would at least play two positions Saturday night against the New York Giants in the preseason opener and even wondered if he might play three.
