Le’Veon Bell Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette writes that although rookie RB Le’Veon Bell’s injury wasn’t as bad as it was intially believed to be, he could miss up to six weeks due to a “small ligament tear” in his right foot. The good news of course is that he managed to avoid the dreaded Lisfranc sprain, which could have cost him the entire season. La’Rod Stephens-Howling Sticking with Gerry Dulac‘s article, RB LaRod Stephens-Howling suffered a mild sprain of the medial collateral ligament in his knee. The Steelers added Stephens-Howling a few months into the NFL free agency period and signs were pointing to him handling the team’s third-down running back job. Thankfully this injury is considered to be minor and should only cost him the rest of the preseason, according to Dulac. Felix Jones Early on Friday, the Steelers sent LB Adrian Robinson to the Eagles in return for RB Felix Jones. It seemed like a curious move given that already have LaRod Stephens-Howling, but his recent knee injury helps to explain why Pittsburgh agreed to this trade. Jones is expected to see time in the Steelers third preseason game against the Kansas City Chiefs, which will be played on Saturday night. This is likely just a move to maintain some depth at running back while Le’Veon Bell is out. It would only take another injury to one of Isaac Redman, Jonathan Dwyer or Stephens-Howling to open the door for Jones to see some playing time.
