With the exception of Todd Gurley, Bell is the most dynamic running back in the NFL. He's in the same exact situation he's been in since this season started.

Instead, it was much of the same as it has been - an empty locker and Steelers players confirming that Bell was nowhere in the facility.

We'll keep pinging you with updates as to where Mr. Bell sits on the happiness-with-his-job scale, but Pittsburgh has something in Conner - and will press on if their so-called lead back decides to continue his sojourn away from the field.

As reported by ESPN, the Steelers camp has yet to hear from Bell. With the bye week rapidly approaching, you would assume Bell would check in with his team.

Running back Le'Veon Bell #26 of the Pittsburgh Steelers tosses the ball forward after gaining a first down against the Kansas City Chiefs during the first quarter in the AFC Divisional Playoff game at Arrowhead Stadium on January 15, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. He could also receive payment for the week if he returns during that window.

Bell hasn't signed his $14.5 million franchise tag while preserving his health for a long-term contract in Pittsburgh or elsewhere.

Whispered about as a trade candidate, Bell reportedly planned to rejoin the Steelers this week in order to accrue a season toward free agency while simultaneously reducing the 16-game wear-and-tear on his body.
