After being cited for possession of marijuana today, Steelers running back LeGarrette Blount traveled with the team to Philadelphia. Le’Veon Bell did not travel with the team. The Steelers play the Eagles Thursday night on NFL Network. It’s possible that Bell missed the plane due to reportedly being at the hospital to have a blood test performed.
The Steelers public relations spokesman issued a statement regarding Bell and Blount. “We are aware of the reports and still gathering information,” said Burt Lauten via a release. “We will have no further comment at this time.”
