I wasn't a big fan of the Bell pick....I have my own reasons. I was concerned about the injuries through camp. This injury doesn't cement anything one way or the other. He hasn't proved himself on the field...Nor has he disproved my concerns. It will be a "wait & see" approach until he can get on the field. Just very unfortunate he suffered the injury.

970 ESPN just reported that Tomlin said that Indeed Bell has the lesser "Stable " sprain, and NOT a tear. He will be out anywhere from 5 weeks, til 8 weeks at the latest. That means he could play after getting back from England against the Jets. But will definitely be 100 % ready for the Ravens game.
I remember when the pick was made there were A LOT of people on here that disliked the pick (to say the least). There was a long thread about it. Then, out of nowhere, everybody seemed to change their tune about the pick. I wonder why? Was it the homerism..... He's now a Steeler so he must be great?!?
