It is looking more and more likely that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell will miss some regular season games. He did not show up to the Steelers’ facility for practice on Wednesday (as his teammates believed he would), and the Twitter world has gone crazy with commentary.
From fantasy football owners of Bell freaking out, to his angry teammates, to trade destination speculations, here is the live buzz Bell is generating.

I can't recall players speaking publicly about a teammate with the sort of tone we're hearing out of the Steelers locker room today about Le'Veon Bell in quite some time. They're livid.

Maurkice Pouncey on Le’Veon Bell’s agent suggesting he’d like to know #Steelers plan for the RB this year: “That’s just stupid. You can’t play football like that.”

Well the Le’Veon Bell situation is getting more and more awkward for the Steelers locker room. The last thing an NFL team wants is distraction and locker room division. #GetRidOfTheFranciseTag #wejustwanttowatchthebestplayers #NFL pic.twitter.com/Zwd4qWJW4d

Anyone want a Le'Veon Bell Jersey?

Somebody let Le'Veon Bell know we have room for a backup RB in Dallas.

Never seen a more selfish move than what Le’Veon Bell is doing to his teammates. I have zero respect for people like that, putting your team aside and thinking only of himself

I’d put money down right now that Le’Veon Bell is a New York Jet or Houston Texan next year. Both teams have a QB on a rookie deal, and have loads of cap space. Texans can cut Lamar Miller this offseason and eat $1m in dead cap space.

Dear Le’Veon Bell,
Please sign your franchise tender
Sincerely, your fantasy owners
