Big Ben on Bell’s absence from OTAs: ‘It would be nice to see him here’

Pittsburgh Steelers running back LeVeon Bell is a man without a long-term contract, so he’s not with the rest of the team at OTAs.

Whether it affects him later chemistry-wise is anyone’s guess, but quarterback Ben Roethsliberger would love to see him soon on the practice field.

“I’m not worried about the chemistry, but I wish he’d be here just because he’s one of the pieces to our puzzle,” Roethlisberger said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

“I know he can’t participate because I don’t think he’s 100 percent healthy, but it would be nice to see him here just in terms of the chemistry and learning and being a part of this process. But obviously, it’s up to him.”
