Rookie Steelers halfback Le'Veon Bell will miss up to six weeks with a small ligament tear in his right foot that should not need surgery, although a second reading of his MRI by an independent podiatrist in North Carolina is pending.

Mike Tomlin declined to talk about Bell's injury today.

Bell's foot was injured on the final play of the first series of Monday night's preseason game against the Washington Redskins. He ran four times for nine yards in his pro debut.

Bell was held out of the first game with a minor knee injury, which was re-injured in practice last week.
