Pittsburgh Steelers' Le'Veon Bell says he can't remember the hit he took after he was briefly knocked out by a ferocious tackle in Thursday's narrow defeat at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.
The running back, who suffered a concussion, said on Monday that he didn't remember scoring the disallowed touchdown that was reversed upon review because his helmet came off on the play.
"I don't remember the exact play," Bell said told the team's official website. "I didn't remember it when it first happened. Once I came off the field I didn't really know I had scored. Then they told me I did; then they told me it wasn't a touchdown. I wasn't aware of what was going on at the time because I got hit. I can't really remember what happened."
The 21-year-old trained on Monday and remains confident that he will be fit to face the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. He must now go through the league's stringent concussion protocol in order to be cleared to play.
"I feel good. I felt like I started to feel better the next day," Bell said. "After the hit I was out of it a little bit, but the next day I woke up and was feeling better and have felt progressively better each day."
