Will Le'Veon Bell report this week?

Bell could instead report October 22.

"I don't know, I".

Last season, Bell rushed for 1,291 yards and nine touchdowns. With the bye week rapidly approaching, you would assume Bell would check in with his team.

This should quickly become an intriguing situation in the backfield as Bell will be aiming to recapture his starting job or it could possibly further complicate the entire matter in a couple of weeks.

Reason why Chelsea, United and Liverpool may miss out on Ramsey
The Arsenal midfielder is out of contract at the end of the season and will be free to talk to clubs from January onwards. Ramsey could also negotiate with a foreign team from January, with Juventus reportedly interested.

Sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler earlier this month that Bell meant to report to the Steelers during the Week 7-8 time frame. That would put him out for almost half the season.

Bottom line: Bell is looking out for himself.

Still, Bell has engaged in no known contact with the Steelers, meaning he could appear out of nowhere or decide to stay away. However, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Steelers have yet to hear anything from their Pro Bowl running back. CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora also reported Sunday the Steelers still are considering trading the 26-year-old running back if he signs his $14.5 million franchise tag before the October 30 trade deadline.

If and when Bell does return, he might not see too many snaps right away.

The Steelers also could elect to trade Bell by the National Football League deadline, which is October 30.
