PITTSBURGH, PA (The Spread) – The Steelers host the Ravens in the Wildcard Round of the NFL playoffs this weekend and the key question facing Pittsburgh is whether or not it’ll have its star running back in uniform.
Le’Veon Bell said Wednesday that his hyperextended knee feels “great” but declined to say whether or not he’ll play on Saturday night when the Steelers host the Ravens in the Wildcard Round of the playoffs. Bell suffered the injury in the Steelers’ Week 17 win over the Bengals last Sunday night and his status for this weekend has been in doubt ever since.
The Steelers are preparing as if Bell won’t be available for Saturday’s game, which means that Josh Harris is being prepped to start at running back. Bell appears to be headed for a game-time decision as it’s doubtful that he’ll practice in full leading up to Saturday.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Steelers are listed as 3-point home favorites over the Ravens for Saturday night’s game while the over/under total is currently sitting at 46.5 points.
