Le'Veon Bell injures knee in Steelers' loss to Bengals
Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was carted off the field midway through the second quarter of Sunday's AFC North game against the Bengals at Heinz Field with a right knee injury.
Bell was helped off the field after catching a pass and getting his leg twisted beneath him during the tackle by Bengals linebacker Vontez Burfict.
Steelers officials said Bell left the stadium to seek further evaluation. It was the same knee Bell injured in the season-finale last year against the Bengals that kept him out of the following week's wildcard playoff game against the Ravens.
Bell was replaced by veteran DeAngelo Williams, who filled in for Bell during his two-game suspension to start the season.
Sunday marked the first time all season the Steelers had their full complement of offensive skill players available to them, but it lasted just more than 20 minutes.
Bell was suspended to start the season; Martavis Bryant the first four; and Ben Roethlisberger missed returned for the first time in four games since injuring his left knee in a Week 3 game against the Rams.
