After holding out rookie running back Le’Veon Bell from last night’s preseason opener against the Giants, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says he’ll be OK.

“He’s going to be fine,” Tomlin said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I just don’t want to start his career out in less than ideal circumstances from a health standpoint. We have a lot of time to evaluate him and others, so we’re going to be patient there.”

With Bell missing last night’s game, it was clear that LaRod Stephens-Howling is Pittsburgh’s second back behind Bell.  The great news is that he played very well in his Steelers debut.
