  • Steelers begin regular-season prep minus Le'Veon Bell

This subject only is worth asking Tomlin about because of Le'Veon Bell's continued absence from the team.

He was not at the Rooney Complex yet again.

With just five days to go until the Steelers kick off their regular season in Cleveland, Bell is running out of time to report if he wants to play in Week 1. "He wrote me a long note before camp and explained what was going on".

"Whenever he comes, we'll welcome him with open arms", Pouncey said, via ESPN.com. "Being a rookie who missed a lot of time due to soft tissue injuries and lack of general readiness to a guy who's done the things that we outlined".

Guard Ramon Foster said the team is focused on "the 53 that are here".

Running back Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers tosses the ball forward after gaining a first down against the Kansas City Chiefs during the first quarter in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium on January 15, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. But until then, let's ride.

McCain, a former Republican nominee for president and six-term Arizona senator, died August 25 from brain cancer. Biden advised McCain's friends and family to remember snapshots of him, such as a glance or a touch.

Bell continues to remain away from the Steelers' facility after sides couldn't come to an agreement on a long-term contract before the July deadline. This year, however, Bell didn't report on Labor Day to sign his tender, which makes his availability for the opener, and also his readiness for it, an unknown. "Whenever he gets here we'll celebrate with him".

He has not signed his $14.5 million franchise tender and can not play until he does so.

"We all know Le'Veon's running style is unique and it's different for the line, it's a change for everybody but I think James Conner really took advantage of the opportunity and has done some great things".

Coach Mike Tomlin echoed that sentiment when he met with reporters Tuesday.

Bell showed up on Labor Day a year ago, then had a limited role in Week 1 (10 carries for 32 yards, three catches for 15 yards). "Totally fine, trust me".
