Steelers Rumors: RB Le'Veon Bell Closing In On '100 Percent' Recovery From Injured Knee

Who knows if the Pittsburgh Steelers' Wild Card loss to the Baltimore Ravens would have ended differenty if running back Le'Veon Bell had been able to go, but at least the Steelers can be comfortable in knowing that Bell's injured knee is almost fully recovered.

"The knee is close to 100 percent," Bell said on NFL Network's Super Bowl Live, via Kevin Patra of "I'm probably about 85-90 percent, been able to run on it a little bit. So I'm getting back to work out a little."

Bell hyperextended his knee in Week 17, costing him the chance to be on the field for the team's frustrating playoff loss to the Ravens.

Regardless, Bell's transformation into the NFL's unquestioned top dual-threat running back is unlikely to be hindered when Bell resumes contact drills and competition come training camp and the preseason.
