Le'Veon Bell's Agent Expresses Concerns With Workload

Le'Veon Bell's Agent Expresses Concerns With Workload

What will, however, were several choice quotes from the Steelers' bulk up front, a group that chose Wednesday as the day they were to sound off on the running saga that is Le'Veon Bell's first appearance of the season.

Le'Veon Bell's holdout has complicated fantasy football drafts, especially for those with one of the top picks. "At this point, we got [James] Conner".

"At this point, man, honestly, it's just a little selfish", said center Maurkice Pouncey, an offensive captain along with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger this season.

"We'll move on as a team", Pouncey said on Wednesday.

The Steelers had a team meeting at 9 a.m. Wednesday morning and Bell once again wasn't present.

The team hoped Bell would show up for work this week, but Bakari told NFL Live that Bell is "going to do the things necessary to protect his value long-term".

Only once has the 32-year-old Spaniard recovered from a two-set deficit on hard courts during his prolific career. Stephens went from up a set and a break at 3-1 in the second to down 4-3 when Azarenka took three games in a row.

"In the ultimate team sport, we've created a league of individuals", guard Ramon Foster said.

"We've been practicing and focusing on the guys that are here - that's what we have to do", Ridley said.

According to ESPN, the Steelers issued the following statement through director of communications Burt Lauten, "We are not going to discuss any conversations through the media". "If Adisa would like to talk further, he has the phone number to our offices". But make no mistake, Pittsburgh needs him to dethrone the New England Patriots and get back to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2010. Or maybe they just wish they knew what Bell's plan was if holding out into the regular season was his strategy all along. After all, few people saw the Khalil Mack trade coming together as quickly as it did, and the Steelers are now talking up Bell's would-be replacement, James Conner. He didn't get that, signing under the franchise tag.

Then there's this interesting observation (via The Athletic's Mark Kaboly) from OG David DeCastro on whether Bell would be welcomed back into the Steelers' locker room after potentially missing games: "I don't know, it's kind of awkward".

If Bell returns well into the season, Pouncey said he will tell him what's up and ask if he's ready.
