It appears Le'Veon Bell's injury might be more serious than originally anticipated.
The Pittsburgh Steelers' running back is debating whether or not to get surgery for the groin injury that forced him out of the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots.
"I'm kind of in the process of seeing a couple of doctors, seeing if I have to get surgery or not," Bell said during an interview on NFL Network. "I'm hoping for the best, but I understand it's a tough game. If I don’t get surgery, I go into the rehab process, work hard, get back to how I was last year - actually, better."
The injury didn't appear to affect him in the wild-card and divisional rounds as he amassed 167 and 170 yards respectively. However he only managed six rushing attempts for 20 yards before the injury took him out against the Patriots.
