GM Kevin Colbert on Le'Veon Bell

Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert Statement on Le'Veon Bell Suspension

We are disappointed Le'Veon Bell has been suspended three games to start the 2016 season. We will continue to support Le'Veon, but we acknowledge this mistake has put the team in an unfortunate position. We will continue to work with Le'Veon to help him eliminate distractions in his life so he can reach his full potential as a member of our community as well as a player for the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Le'Veon Bell of the Pittsburgh Steelers has been suspended without pay for the first three games of the 2016 regular season for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

Bell will be eligible to return to the Steelers' active roster on Monday, September 26 following the team's September 25 game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Bell is eligible to participate in all remaining preseason practices and games.
