It looks like Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is getting his groin fixed. While there's nothing wrong with that, with nothing to gain for veteran players beyond injury risk in meaningless pad-less practices, it also likely explains a fairly lengthy delay in Bell's decision to have surgery. He wrote on Twitter. Bell said during the week leading up to the Super Bowl that he had been dealing with the injury throughout the playoffs, but he was never listed on the Steelers injury report.

Bell originally suffered the injury after getting tackled during Pittsburgh's Wild Card win against the Miami Dolphins, but was able to play through it the following week when the Steelers beat the Kansas City Chiefs to punch their ticket to the AFC Championship Game.

Clearly the organisation expects Bell to return to tip-top shape.

The Steelers used the franchise tag on the 25-year-old Bell and want to sign him to a long-term deal.

On Saturday, a young Steelers fan named Ava Tarantino sent a message to Bell on Twitter suggesting that he come to her dance if the social media request garnered 500 retweets. He had rushed for 100-plus yards in seven of his previous eight games heading into the matchup with New England but finished with just 20 yards on six carries against the Patriots.
