Report: Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell facing 4 game suspension

Per a report from Dan Graziano of ESPN, Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell is once again in Roger Goodell’s dog house.

Graziano wrote this on ESPN.com:

“Sources close to the situation tell me Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violation of the NFL’s drug policy. The suspension is the result of a MISSED drug test, not a failed one, and the reason it hasn’t yet been announced is that the appeal process is still going on. No date for Bell’s appeal has been set, though it’s expected that it will be heard before the start of the regular season, meaning that if it’s not overturned, he would miss the first four games of the season. Bell was suspended for the first three games of last season (later reduced to two) for a violation of the policy on substances of abuse after he was arrested for marijuana possession and DUI in the summer of 2014.”

Bell remains a first round pick; however, Todd Gurley, Adrian Peterson, David Johnson, Ezekiel Elliott and possibly Lamar Miller could jump him in the fantasy running back rankings. We will keep you updated on the appeal, but as of right now, it looks like DeAngelo Williams will once again be a legitimate RB1 for at least the first four games of the 2016 season.
