Le'Veon Bell has said that he has a "great opportunity" to play against the Minnesota Vikings this weekend.
The Pittsburgh Steelers running back is yet to play for the side, having sustained a foot sprain during pre-season.
The 21-year-old told the team's website: "It's a great opportunity for me. I'm going to be able to play and keep moving forward and get ready for the week. I just can't wait to go out and show people what I can do.
"I will go out there and do what I can with the reps I get and try to help this team win. Last week I was a little rusty [in practice], not playing or running in cleats. I am ready to go this week, get in game shape and get ready for the game.
"I am ready to go out there. I am tired of watching. I want to be in the game, play and communicate with my teammates during the game. I am looking forward to that."
The Steelers face the Vikings at Wembley Stadium this evening.
