The Pittsburgh Steelers announced Monday that they’ve received a roster exemption for RB Le’Veon Bell, who has served his three-game suspension for missing multiple drug tests.
The Steelers will have until Thursday at 4pm EST to make a roster move to clear a roster spot for Bell.
Bell can return to the practice field on Monday.
Bell, 24, is a former second-round pick of the Steelers back in 2013. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $4,120,600 rookie contract that included a $1,376,800 signing bonus and stands to make a base salary of $966,900 in 2016.
Bell wound up missing the first two games of the season due to a suspension before later sustained a season-ending injury.
In 2015, Bell appeared in six games and running for 556 yards on 113 carries (4.9 YPC) to go along with 24 receptions for 136 yards receiving and three total touchdowns.
