Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell‘s suspension, which due to missing a required drug test, has been reduced to three games.
The NFL announced Bell’s three-game suspension for violating the substance abuse rules on Friday.
According to informed sources, the consensus between the NFL and the players union is the reason why Bell’s time to ban from the beginning of the four games reduces to three games.
As part of the agreement, Bell remains in the current stage of the NFL’s drug project rather than advancing to the next one. Missing drug test is due to Bell’s travel plan, which the testers did not be informed about it.
On Twitter and Instagram, Bell apologized to his teammates and Steelers fans, but the apology messages on both platforms were deleted shortly after the release.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said the team was “disappointed” and Bell’s error to make the team in a statement “disadvantaged.”
