The Pittsburgh Steelers released their updated depth chart on Tuesday and one notable name missing. That name is that of Le’Veon Bell, who’s also missing, holding out from the team until he gets a new contract.
One change to depth chart just released by Steelers. Unlike last week, RB Le’Veon Bell is nowhere to be found on it. James Conner is listed as starter followed by Jaylen Samuels and Stevan Ridley

The move likely indicated that Bell’s standoff will last further into the season than expected, and with the emergence of James Conner in the the team’s Week 1 matchup against the Browns, there seems to be even less urgency to get a deal done from the Steelers’ perspective.
