Le'Veon Bell reveals when he will be back on the field for the Steelers.

It appears there is no need to worry about the status of Le'Veon Bell for the upcoming 2016 NFL season, as he continues to make leaps and bounds in his recovery. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell was seen participating in individual drills at the Steelers' OTAs Tuesday, only six months after undergoing major knee surgery.

Bell tore his MCL and PCL in November, which put his availability for the start of the 2016 season into question. This injury is considered by many to be even more difficult to recover from that a torn ACL. However, Bell told reporters he expects to be 100 percent by the start of training camp, showing an incredible sense of confidence and optimism in his recovery.

It's typical for players to underestimate the time it will take to return from injury, but Bell is easier to believe than others. It seems like every day he posts video on his Snapchat feed of him working out and looking strong and nimble.

Bell told reporters he believes the Cincinnati Bengals tried to injury him. It was linebacker Vontaze Burfict who delivered the hit that tore his ligaments.

"The whole (Bengals) team was really out there trying to like twist my ankles and do little dirty stuff in between the piles," Bell said before admitting he now understands he must do a better job protecting himself against further injury.

"I just know that when I'm on the sidelines I can't expect somebody to just push me out of bounds ... I have to really protect myself."
