Steelers’ Bell Suspended 1st 3 games of Season

DAN SCIFO, Associated Press

The NFL on Friday suspended Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell for the first three games of the season for missing multiple drug tests, a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

Bell initially faced a four-game suspension, but it was reduced to three games following an appeal to the league. Bell offered an apology in an Instagram post shortly after the suspension was announced, a post he later deleted.

“I’m not the perfect person,” Bell said in the post. “I’m not going to say I act like a perfect person. I make mistakes. I want to apologize for everything I put you guys through the last couple years. It’s been a frustrating run for you. It’s been a frustrating run for me.”
