Le'Veon Bell Expected To End Holdout Next Week, Says Steelers Owner

The Steelers are expecting Le’Veon Bell to be back with the team next week … so says owner Art Rooney II.

The Pittsburgh honcho said on SiriusXM NFL Radio Thursday that it’s his understanding the superstar tailback will re-join his teammates in just a couple days.

“I have to start by saying, I don’t know what his plans are, but I would say that at this point, we expect him to come back next week.”

Of course … Le’Veon has sat out all Steelers practices and games the last few months as he continues to look for a new mega-deal from the team.

Le’Veon’s been down in Miami in the meantime — ridin’ jetskis and hittin’ nightclubs — but he tweeted farewell to the city earlier this week and was then spotted at local Pittsburgh gym Tuesday.

The Steelers have hardly missed Bell … rollin’ to a 5-2-1 record, thanks mostly to the play of Le’Veon’s backup James Conner.

Pittsburgh plays the Carolina Panthers Thursday night … perhaps for the last time this season without the Le’Veon?
