Steelers TE Jesse James on Bell/Conner: "(Conner's) played great. Obviously, with Le'Veon, I don't know what's going to happen. I don't know what kind of shape he's going to be in whenever he gets here, but we'll have two great backs and there's nothing wrong with having two great backs for us. It's only going to help us."

Le'Veon Bell's plan was to utilize period between bye week and the Browns game to start to make his return. If not in Pittsburgh by some time next week, perhaps something has changed in his approach. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports the Steelers do not expect Bell this week.
