Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell can add one more game to his season.

After reportedly missing – not failing – mandatory drug testing, Le’Veon Bell received a four-game suspension from the NFL for violating its substance-abuse policy. However, the league has reportedly reduced the sentence to three games.

The reduction means that Bell will only miss Week 1 against the Washington Redskins, Week 2 against the Cincinnati Bengals and Week 3 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He returns just in time for Week 4’s matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Interestingly, this is the second year in a row that Bell received a suspension at the start of the season, as well as the second time the NFL reduced his punishment through an appeal.

The Steelers’ season opens against the Redskins on Sept. 12.
