Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon has left the game against the Cincinnati Bengals during the second quarter due to a knee injury. He will not be able to return to the game, according to Burt Lauten.
Bell left before the end of the first half after he was tackled by Bengals' safety Reggie Nelson, causing his right knee to twist in an awkward fashion.
He wasn't able to put weight on the knee, so he ended up leaving the game and was taken to the locker room on a cart. Bell later left the stadium to have further evaluation at a nearby medical facility.

Nelson was the same person who injured the running back last year which kept the 23-year-old out of the playoffs.
On the replays of this incident, the real damage was caused by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict who pulled Bell down after he was tackled, causing his knee to bend in a way it shouldn't.
This injury comes at a horrible time for the Steelers, as they only managed to get back to full strength on the offense today after the return of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger under center.
Martarvis Bryant was also suspended for four games, but Big Ben had already gone down with his injury before the wide receiver was able to return.
No further news has been released by the Steelers over the injury status of Bell. However, we do know he will be out for the rest of the game, and maybe even the rest of the season.
