Possible suspensions 'on the table' for Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount
Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said running backs Le'Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount could still face discipline after being charged with possession of marijuana following a traffic stop last week.
Bell was also charged with DUI after the two were stopped hours before the Steelers team plane left for a preseason game in Philadelphia.
Whatever punishment is coming the two players way, Tomlin has said he plans to address it internally.
“Everything's on the table,” Tomlin said to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “We don't do it in a reactionary fashion. We don't wait for something to happen. That's part of our culture here.”
Both played well into the fourth quarter of the team’s 31-21 preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and are the only two backs on Pittsburgh’s roster to carry the ball in the regular season of an NFL game.
The Steelers begin the season at home Sept. 7 against the Cleveland Browns.
