Steelers 'disappointed' Le'Veon Bell has not signed tender

Steelers 'disappointed' Le'Veon Bell has not signed tender

"Coach Tomlin and the coaching staff will continue to focus on preparing the players on our roster for our regular season opener on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns". One thing was clear: Teammates backing James Conner big time.

When Le'Veon gets here, he gets here.

Bell was a no-show at the team's facility Monday and has a $14.5 million franchise tender waiting for him. For most of the summer, Bell had given every indication that he was going to show up on Labor Day, just like he did past year. The Steelers will use second-year quarterback Joshua Dobbs as the backup, with rookie Mason Rudolph starting the season as the No. 3 quarterback.

"James", he said. "The status and condition and the approach of James". He recorded 1,291 rushing yards and nine touchdowns in 2017.

Guys like Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack have missed training camp, but they are practicing and in meeting rooms with their team this week after receiving their extensions.

"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".

"Is there anything you won't do, or won't do as much of (in this opener in Cleveland), as you might have done with Bell?" With the season set to debut in five days, head coach Mike Tomlin was asked when his star would be on the field.

"When we look at ourselves, the overall health of our team is pretty good". We should anticipate all members of our team at least being partial participants as we get started this week with practice, and then we'll let that be our guide in terms of their inclusion in our plan. We'll watch some of those guys and divide the labor up and utilize their talents accordingly based on what we see as the week progresses.

"I'll know more once he participates tomorrow", Tomlin said.
