Le'Veon Bell hasn't shown up to any practices, training camp, or played in any preseason games as Week 1 looms near.

"We are disappointed Le'Veon Bell has not signed his franchise tender and rejoined his teammates", general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement Monday.

Or maybe Bell will wait until early November to sign his one-year franchise tender, a move that would cost him millions in lost salary up front, a windfall Bell hopes to recoup when he hits free agency next spring.

If Bell misses that, Pittsburgh will have to think about running the offense around James Conner.

With running back Le'Veon Bell still on a holdout with less than a week before the new National Football League season kicks off, it's becoming increasingly apparent that he won't be there on the field when his team takes on the Cleveland Browns this coming Sunday.

Bell is scheduled to make $14.55 million this season, but the Steelers could place him on the two-week roster exempt list.

When asked directly about Bell, guard Ramon Foster pivoted to Conner.

Jones had spent the past five seasons on the roster, including three as Ben Roethlisberger's backup, before being let go Saturday.

"Whenever he comes, we'll welcome him with open arms", Pouncey said, via ESPN.com. It's fine. He showed up previous year at the same time. For most of the summer, Bell had given every indication that he was going to show up on Labor Day, just like he did a year ago. "I trust James", he said. "We've got other things to worry about than other guys' money". In July, Le'Veon tweeted that he envisioned 2018 being his best season to date, as of right now that's looking rather unlikely, at least in a Steelers' uniform.

"When we look at ourselves, the overall health of our team is pretty good".

Steelers defensive end Cam Heyward insisted that the Bell situation won't be a distraction to the team, no matter how it plays out. The vast majority of guys who missed some time throughout the process have worked in some capacity and even participated in the last preseason game.
