ESPN reports that the NFL and Le’Veon Bell are in the process of negotiating a settlement that would reduce his suspension to one or two games.
Potentially big fantasy news: NFL, Le'Veon Bell are negotiating a settlement that could reduce his 3-gm suspension to 1 or 2.

Bell received a 3 game suspension this spring for his arrest last summer on charges of driving under the influence and marijuana possession. The running back was sentenced to 15 months probation and was able to enter a pre-trial intervention program. Bell also received a 60 day suspension of his driver’s license.
The Steelers face the Patriots week 1, and they’ll do so without Bell. Whether or not he’ll be able to play against the 49ers or St. Louis for weeks 2 and 3 will be determined soon.
