Found August 21, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
The Pittsburgh Steelers received some devastating news today, as rookie running back and most likely 1st stringer Le'Veon Bell will be sidelined with a Lisfranc injury.  Surgery or not, Bell is going to miss significant time and is now UNDRAFTABLE!  If you have already drafted, make sure you are quick to grab Jonathan Dwyer and Isaac Redman!Outside of football, Lisfranc is a relatively uncommon injury. But football players (and soccer players) suffer from them more regularly. Benjamin Wedro, a physician who writes extensively about sports issues, called them a low-energy injury where a twist to the midfoot is added to a fall where the foot is plantar-flexed, or positioned like a ballerina on point. The same mechanism can happen in a pile-up if the foot is twisted when another player stumbles over top of it. - Mike Freeman, CBSI guess we all know who you would rather have now!Be sure to check out the updated Running Back Rankings!
