The Steelers have used their franchise tag on RB Le'Veon Bell for the 2nd straight year. The 2 parties have been discussing a long-term contract but have yet to come to an agreement. They now have until July 16 to do so. Otherwise, Bell will play 2018 on a 1-year deal that will pay him $14.5 million. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reported earlier this week that Bell will "likely" skip training camp without a long-term contract. He did that last year and got off to a relatively slow start, totaling 236 yards and 1 TD over his first 3 games.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that QB Ben Roethlisberger and RB Le'Veon Bell won't play in today's finale against the Browns. QB Landry Jones will draw the start, with Stevan Ridley and Fitzgerald Toussaint handling backfield duties. It's unclear how much WRs JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will play.

Steelers OT Marcus Gilbert told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Tim Benz that QB Ben Roethlisberger and RB Le'Veon Bell won't play against the Browns this weekend. We haven't heard anything from the team or any major media sources, but this wouldn't be a total surprise. The Steelers have at least clinched the AFC's #2 seed and can only climb to #1 if the Patriots lose at home to the Jets. We'll continue to monitor this situation -- and will get the Steelers' inactives by noon ET on Sunday.

Steelers HC Mike Tomlin said Tuesday that RB Le'Veon Bell is in "great physical condition." He added that he'll "assess" Bell throughout the week to determine how to use him in Sunday's opener in Cleveland. All signs continue to point toward Bell getting a full workload in that one.

Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell admitted to being "a little winded" in his practice debut on Monday but felt good overall, according to ESPN's Aditi Kinkhabwala. "I feel good, I feel great, I feel fresh," he said. Bell added that he's ready for a full workload in Sunday's opener vs. Cleveland. "I want as many carries as I need to get for us to win games." Bell will be an elite Week 1 fantasy play.

Injury Predictor

Bell averaged 28 touches per game in 2016 — after serving a 4-game suspension, and coming off surgery to repair a torn MCL in 2015, an injury that sidelined him for 7 games. The MCL tear was the worst injury of his young NFL career. But with such a heavy workload, Bell has an increased chance to both be a fantasy stud, and sustain injuries.
