Bell facing three-game ban

Bell was arrested following a traffic stop in a northern Pittsburgh suburb along with then-teammate LeGarrette Blount.

The 23-year-old Pro Bowler ended up pleading no contest and was sentenced to 15 months of probation and entered into a diversion program.

Blount, now a running back with New England, received a one-game suspension from the league last week.

Bell took the NFL by storm in 2014 ??? his second season in the league ??? as he ran for 1,361 yards and racked up 854 yards receiving.

The 23-year-old missed the Steelers??? playoff loss to AFC North division rivals the Baltimore Ravens after injuring his knee in the regular-season finale and the team???s offence struggled in his absence.

The Steelers signed former Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams in the offseason and he will be expected to carry the load while Bell is suspended. ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ?? ??

Bell is expected to appeal the suspension, which was first reported by ESPN.
