Le'Veon Bell injury update: Questionable for fantasy owners Sunday

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell (foot) fully participated in practice on both Thursday and Friday and could see limited action in Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears. The Steeler's second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft is expected to be the team's work horse running back of the immediate future, even though he has yet to play in a professional game.

Fantasy impact: The running game in Pittsburgh has been nonexistent with neither Jonathan Dwyer or Isaac Redman showing that they can carry the load for the Steelers. Sunday night's game will match the black and gold up against one of the league's best defenses at Soldier Field in Chicago and any action that Bell sees will probably be limited. This is especially true considering the Steelers are 0-2 to start the season and are basically facing an early season must win scenario, as another loss or two pretty much puts the writing on the wall for the team's playoff aspirations. Fantasy owners should tread lightly this week and consider holding Bell back until Week 4.
