Following Earl Thomas’ broken leg Sunday, Le’Veon Bell commented on an ESPN Instagram post that he will continue to be the “bad guy” and sit out in hopes of receiving the contract he believes he’s worth.
Despite that, it’s being reported that the Steelers RB will end his holdout return to the team later this season, during Pittsburgh’s Week 7 bye to be exact.
Le’Veon Bell expects to report to the Steelers during the Week 7 bye, a source told @ESPN. Bell definitely plans to play football for the Steelers this season.

The Steelers have gone 1-2-1 during Bell’s absence, losing to the Ravens Sunday night. If Bell plays in his first game back with the team, he’ll see the field for the first time Week 8 when the Steelers face off against Baltimore again.
