    Training Camp Injury Thread

    Le’Veon Bell injured during Steelers practice

    Mike Tomlin downplayed Le’Veon Bell’s hamstring injury that drove him off the practice field today, but it carried with it a sense of deja vu with the second-year running back.

    Bell left the practice field at Saint Vincent College last Aug. 3 with a bruised knee and missed the first preseason game. He played in the second but then left with a sprained foot that wiped out the rest of the preseason for him along with the first three games of the regular seasson.

    The last thing the Steelers’ young but potentially exciting offense needs is to lose Bell, a running back they plan to build all kinds of things around, including the no-huddle offense.

    It took just two practices without pads for Bell to leave this time. He walked off without limping along with a trainer to the locker room in the middle of practice today.

    “Tightness in the hamstring,’’ Mike Tomlin called it. “We’ll get that evaluated.”

    It took Bell several games to get into the flow after he returned last season for the fourth game, but once he did, he was dynamic. His 1,259 yards combined rushing and receiving were the most by a Steelers rookie running back. His 45 receptions were the most by a Steelers back in 19 years.

    Tomlin outlined a few other minor injuries and confirmed a major one: Offensive lineman David Snow has a broken foot that will require surgery.

    Rookie wide receiver Martavious Bryant has a groin injury and Martavious Bryant groin. Rookie wide receiver C.J. Goodwin of California University of Pa. has a shoulder injury.

    “Don’t know how much time those guys will miss, if any,’’ Tomlin said of what he called the bumps and bruises injuries, including Bell’s. “Just kind of necessary things that go along with this time of year.’’

    ...NOTES: RB Le'Veon Bell left Sunday's practice with tightness in his hamstring, while Bryant (groin) and WR C.J. Goodwin (shoulder) also sat out. ... C/G David Snow has a foot fracture that requires surgery. Sunday's practice ended 10 minutes early because of a thunderstorm. The Steelers will practice in pads for the first time on Monday.

    I really hope this won't be a habit for Bell. I've grown to really like Bell and would like to see him be tough..not a marshmallow.

    Quick injury roundup. C.J. Goodwin sat out with his shoulder injury. Le’Veon Bell sat out because of his tight hamstring. Martavis Bryant returned to practice after missing just the one day. Mike Tomlin announced Jordan Zumwalt suffered a groin injury.

    I doubt there are many RBs in the NFL who could be called "marshmallows". They would have been weeded out before they made it that far. In the Ravens game last year Bell took a double shot to the head ( helmet-to-helmet and head hitting turf) and was out cold on the field. He played in the next game and showed no signs of being gunshy. That would indicate he's not a marshmallow. Anybody can have a hamstring tighten up.

    Half the people who insult players for not practicing through a tight hamstring would be crippled and crying in a heap on the floor if they had one.

    it's virtually impossible to run anywhere near full speed with a tight hamstring...

    No doubt.

    There are very few guys who are soft. BUT... there is a level of physical toughness that can take down the most mentally tough guys. Some times, the body just doesn't hold up.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.
