Heading into the Pittsburgh Steelers biggest game of the season, if they were going to knock off the New England Patriots on the road, it was going to be because Le’Veon Bell controlled the game on the ground.
Unfortunately, Bell injured his left groin late in the first quarter, which forced him to miss the majority of the game. This appeared to be a very unlucky series of events, but Bell has been hurting for a couple of weeks now.
“I’m not really sure what caused it,” Bell said. “Just over the course of time, I’ve been hurting. So today was kind of like when it broke the camel’s back, you know? I haven’t been really telling people how I really felt. Came into the game today and really let my teammates down because I couldn’t go. I’ve been out there fighting through, fighting through and I couldn’t go today, so it sucked.”
Bell carried the ball six times for 20 yards.
