Steelers holding their breath over Le’Veon Bell knee injury

The Steelers are looking good at the moment, but they’re also holding their breath.

Running back and legitimate MVP candidate Le’Veon Bell just went down clutching his right knee. He got up and jogged off the field under his own power, but was limping.

Safety Reggie Nelson hit Bell squarely on the knee, though it didn’t appear maliciously low.

If Bell — who entered the game with over 2,100 yards from scrimmage — is out any amount of time, the Steelers are going to be hurting.

After letting LeGarrette Blount talk his way out of town, they’re thin at the position, making Bell’s condition crucial.

The fact he went to the locker room after watching a replay of the play’s not a good sign, and the team has referred to his return as doubtful.
