Le’Veon Bell’s Suspension is Reduced
After reaching a settlement with the NFL, Le'Veon Bell's suspension has been reduced from four to three games according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The stipulation of the deal keeps in the same stage of the NFL's substance abuse program. Also, If he were to get in trouble for another substance violation he would only serve four games, not 10.
The Steelers running back's four game suspension was for missing multiple drug tests, not failing a drug test.
Last season, Bell missed the first two games due to his first violation of the leagues substance abuse policy. He was arrested for marijuana possession and DUI in August 2014.
Bell is eligible to play in week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs.
