The injury occurred in the second quarter when Bell caught a pass from the returning Ben Roethlisberger, but was tackled by Cincinnati's Vontaze Burfict. The Bengals' linebacker appeared to celebrate after the hit, which frustrated the Steelers.
Burfict claimed that he did not realize Bell was hurt, but Pittsburgh is not buying it. Ramon Foster called Burfict "that type of guy" that would celebrate an injury, and went on to say that Burfict would get his.
This makes many believe that the next time these two AFC Norh division rivals clash, the Steelers will have payback in mind and will not forget Burfict's hit.
Bell was carted off the field into the locker room, and despite moving his knee around on his way out, it has been revealed as another major injury for the running back out of Michigan State.
The Steeler' tailback recorded 511 yards rushing, including a walk-off touchdown in a Monday Night Football win over San Diego, in five games since returning from suspension. Bell and Roethlisberger have only played a total of 39 snaps together this season.
Big Ben missed four games with a knee injury, and Bell was suspended the first two games of the year for marijuana. The two offensive stars are not expected to play another snap together this season.
Pittsburgh had former St. Louis Rams running back Isaiah Pead in for a tryout on Tuesday.
Bell took to Twitter to thank the fans for all the support, as his focus shifts to being on the football field for the Steelers in 2016.
