Le’veon Bell

November 29, 2013 by  

Le’veon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back Le’Veon Bell was on the receiving end of a scary helmet-to-helmet hit late in the fourth quarter of his team’s 22-20 loss against the Baltimore Ravens on Thanksgiving.

The Ravens’ Twitter account detailed the scary moment:

Jimmy Smith and Le’Veon Bell are both down on the field after a vicious collision at the goal line. Both appeared to be knocked out.

CBS Sports’ Will Brinson provided an image of the vicious hit:

Looks like helmet is off before the ball is out. Crazy situation:

As Sports Illustrated’s Chris Burke explained, perhaps the worst part occurred when Bell’s exposed head bounced off the ground:

Contact on the helmets was bad, but the way his head snapped back and hit the ground was worse.

After the game Jarrett Bell of USA Today had an update on his status:

Steelers RB @L_Bell26 will undergo further concussion tests tomorrow. I’m told that my Spartan brother was still a bit woozy after the game.

A rookie out of Michigan State, Bell was in the midst of a stellar season before the injury. He had rushed for 455 yards and four touchdowns in just eight games entering the contest and had developed into a solid every-down option for the Steelers offense.

Bell was having one of his better games as a pro against Baltimore, carrying the ball 16 times for 73 yards and a touchdown.

Pittsburgh has four games left on the schedule this year. If Bell misses an extended period of time, the Steelers will have to make do with the combo of Felix Jones and Jonathan Dwyer at running back.
