Le'Veon Bell Plans To Appeal Suspension In August 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jul 29, 2016 1:09 pm

Le'Veon Bell is facing a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy by missing tests, but he plans to appeal the ruling.

Bell said he plans to appeal the suspension "sometime in August" and that he was notified of a missed test and his suspension in March.

Mike Tomlin confirmed that Bell's appeal will not be heard until the second week of August.

"I don't want to be a distraction to my teammates or to Steelers Nation," Bell added. "So I'm just going to keep moving forward and let everything handle itself."
