The injury has been diagnosed as a hyperextension. Whether Bell can play will likely come down to pain tolerance.
Still, it is undoubtedly good news that Bell has not suffered any ligament damage, particularly when considering that Pittsburgh feared the worst.
Undrafted free agent RB Josh Harris would likely get the bulk of the carries if Bell is out.
Harris ran for only seven yards on five carries against Cincinnati in week 17.
Bell has accumulated 1,361 yards rushing this season along with 854 yards receiving.
