Bell gained 18 yards on five carries in the first quarter. He was replaced by De’Angelo Williams, who scored Pittsburgh’s first touchdown to cut New England’s lead to 10-6.
We’ll update you on Bell’s status, as this would obviously be a huge loss.
In only 12 games this season, Bell gained 1,268 yards and scored seven touchdowns on the ground. He also caught 75 passes for 616 yards and two scores.
Update: Bell is back in the game, but he doesn’t look like himself.
Our guess is he tries to give it a go, but he might be hampered all evening.
