Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell made the trip to Philadelphia for a preseason game against the Eagles on Thursday despite being arrested for possession of marijuana on Wednesday. The guy’s such a hero he supposedly bought his own plane ticket. DeMeco Ryans probably made Bell wish he just stayed home.
Ryans absolutely leveled Bell on a pass over the middle of the field in the first quarter, drawing a flag for unnecessary roughness in the process. It looked like Bell could see the hit coming and got T-rex arms, which is why the ball ended up going off his hands. He paid the price anyway.
Fantasy football owners were already nervous about a potential suspension for Bell, though that would likely come later in the season and would probably only be a one-game ban. I’m sure seeing him get lit up like that didn’t make them feel any better.
