In his final year at Michigan State, Le’Veon Bell toted the ball a whopping 382 times – more than any other running back in the nation.
The 6-foot-1, 244-pound workhorse was then selected in the second round of the 2013 NFL Draft to do more of the same for the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Unfortunately, Bell suffered a Lisfranc foot injury that will keep him out for at least six weeks. Two years ago, in 2011, Darren McFadden suffered from the same issue and missed nine games before eventually having surgery to fix it before the 2012 season.
Bell is optimistic, however, posting his sunny disposition onto his Instagram account with the following caption:
I’ll be back quicker than ppl kno it…God doesn’t make mistakes! Everything happens for a reason, so ima make the most of what I got and continue to move forward…don’t feel bad or sorry for me because it’s a long football season and it’s just a minor setback for a MAJOR comeback…So ima continue to smile and take steps towards greatness! I still have many ppl to prove wrong and I plan on doing that…#Blessed #GodFirst
