Le’Veon Bell’s Status For Week 1 Has Reportedly Been Decided

Fellow offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey told reporters, "Honestly it's a little selfish".

A standout football player in high school, Bell later played college football at Michigan State University from 2010 to 2012 and opted to enter the 2013 NFL Draft after his junior season, ultimately being selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the second round.

Here's all you need to know about Bell, including his net worth and ongoing contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

"I just felt confident that he was gonna come", Pouncey said Wednesday, "But now that he didn't, obviously it's Le'Veon over the Steelers, and we're the Steelers and we're going to play as the Steelers".

Pakistan is cooperating with Beijing's "Belt and Road" initiative, but the country's financial situation remains hard . However, experts believe that Pakistan might be unable to support Iran as it has promised.

The sudden heel-turn on Bell appears coordinated.

"He f-- us", one veteran player summed it up for ESPN. He will lose about $850,000 for each game he misses. Surely they thought Bell would be back around Labor Day just like last season, and they waited until the all-important Wednesday practice before airing their grievances publicly.

But players - especially those who block for Bell - have no issues discussing.

It feels now more than ever that this will not end well in Pittsburgh, and there's even the chance that the team moves on from him completely before he reports.

Former Arizona U.S. Sen. Jon Kyl to replace John McCain
Once Kyl is sworn in, Republicans will return to the 51 seats they held in the 100-member Senate before McCain's death. McCain praised Kyl on the Senate floor when Kyl announced his resignation, touting Kyl's work ethic.

Speaking on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, Bell's agent, Adisa Bakari, implied that the 26-year-old could sit out well into the season.

Oh, boy. We knew Bell was holding out, but the assumption all along was that he would follow the plan laid out past year, when he refused to sign his franchise tag until the final week before the start of the season, before reporting in time for Week 1. However, the Steelers could always place the $14.54 million franchise tag on him again in 2019.

"Stars are made every year, so hopefully it aligns for him", Pouncey said.

'You're (Steelers general manager) Kevin Colbert, you're (head coach) Mike Tomlin - you have a possibly once-in-a-generation player for one more season.

Petrol price hits a record high in Mumbai
The recent slump in rupee also has lifted the import cost of crude oil, subsequently raising fuel prices. In Mumbai, the price of petrol is Rs 86.72/litre while diesel is being sold at Rs 75.74/litre.

Bell has to worry about his own long-term well-being over the short-term interested of the Steelers, and he's just witnessed Aaron Donald and Khalil Mack receive extremely lucrative deals over the last week. "At this point, we got [James] Conner". He can still technically accrue a full year of service time if he reports by Week 10. "Any time I can play football, I don't take it for granted". Bell's absence won't change that plan. We're going to have to keep an eye on him, two eyes.
