Le’Veon Bell calls reports of him returning ‘fake news’

It is never a boring day when it comes to Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell’s Twitter account. The running back tweeted this out following news that he reportedly told teammates he would return to practice this coming Labor Day.

This is just all sorts of confusing. Bell is implying he said no such thing.

What are the Steelers to do at this point other than kick off practice on Monday and conduct business as usual? Bell and the Steelers failed to settle on a long-term contract over the summer and he is slated once again to play out this season under a franchise tag.

With the days ticking away, we now must wonder if Bell actually intends to miss regular season time. Each game Bell skips would cost him nearly $1 million in salary plus any fines.

At this point, the ball is in Bell’s court.
