"We're kind of expecting he'll be back next week". After all, he did leave Miami and was spotted working out in Pittsburgh this week.

On the Steelers' end, Carolina should expect to see a lot of James Conner, who now leads the AFC in rushing with 706 yards.

However, Conner left the Carolina game with a possible concussion and his bruising style could make him susceptible to further injuries.

Rooney said the team will not focus on Bell's future until the season is over.

If he plays in games this season, the Steelers could try to prove Bell's transition tag should be prorated. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Bell must report to the team by Tuesday November 13 at 4 pm ET or he will be ineligible to play for the remainder of the 2018 season, under the terms of the collective bargaining agreement. Bell wants a longer and more lucrative contract, while the Steelers only have a one-year franchise tag tender for the tailback.

Bell does not have to report to the Steelers by a certain date to get an accrued season to become eligible for free agency, contrary to what ESPN and others previously reported.

If Bell does indeed return it would be interesting timing. "We'll cross those bridges when we get to them at the end of the season".

On Wednesday night, Bell posted two messages on his Twitter account in upside-down text, saying in part that he is "not apologizing" for his holdout. "I'm going to put it just like that". ". Don't judge me off my decisions because maybe this isn't what you'd do. but most people don't take the time to just simply read between the lines".
