Le'Veon Bell may not miss any games to start the 2016 NFL season.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' running back is facing a possible four-game suspension to start the 2016 season after he missed several drug tests. However, there may be some hope for Bell, who previously assured fans and coaches he had not missed any tests.
According to ESPN's senior NFL reporter John Clayton, Bell has a fighting chance to win his suspension appeal after it was revealed that the fact that Bell changed his phone number, which may have ed to the missed tests.
Clayton believes that if the league's drug tester did not do a good enough job of tracking down Bell to inform him of his upcoming tests, then Bell could avoid suspension.
While winning an appeal against an NFL suspension has always proven to be an uphill battle, Bell remains confident he will be on the field to start the 2016 NFL season. Bell posted on his Twitter account on Sunday night that wouldn't miss any games in 2016 for suspension-related reasons.
Hopefully that is the case as he is heading into the final year of his rookie contract and hopes to make his case to be the highest paid running back in the NFL in 2017.
