Steelers Le'Veon Bell hopes to return Sunday after turkey day concussion

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie running back, Le'Veon Bell, suffered a concussion on Thanksgiving Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens.   Josh Alper of NBCSports tells us Bell hopes to return Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

The injury occurred late in the fourth quarter when Bell dove in for an apparent touchdown from the one-yard line.  Bell's helmet was separated from his melon and Bell left for the locker room for examination for a potential concussion.

Bell still got his bell rung even though the zebras overturned the touchdown upon review.  The Steelers scored on a subsequent play and Bell should be highly praised for his efforts.  If the Steelers have any hope of making the playoffs, Bell needs to be a part of the offense.

Bell, who had a good day at the office prior to his injury, rushed for 136 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens and hopes he can get back to dish it out against the Dolphins on Sunday, telling reporters:

[I feel] progressively better...  I’m going to take it day by day and see where we’re at.  The goal is obviously to play, but if [I'm] not able to, I’m not able to.

Bell, who is doing light running, is waiting to see if he is cleared to resume activities on the practice field.  RBs Jonathan Dwyer and Felix Jones are looming in the tunnels if Bell cannot play against Miami on Sunday.
