Mike Tomlin: 'Le'Veon Bell not in peak condition'

Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin says that running back Le'Veon Bell will make his debut for the team today, despite not being in top condition.

Mike Tomlin has admitted that Le'Veon Bell is not in "tip-top football condition" ahead of his first game for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The rookie running back, who missed the first three games of the season with a foot sprain, will make his regular season debut for the AFC North side at Wembley Stadium later today.

The head coach told reporters: "We're excited about watching him for the first time. As for the amount of snaps, we're going to play that by ear.

"We acknowledged that he's not in tip-top football condition and the only way to get that is by playing, and he hasn't done that a lot. We're going to keep an eye on him and monitor that throughout the game."

The Steelers face the Minnesota Vikings this evening.
