Pittsburgh, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without running back Le'Veon Bell for Saturday night's AFC Wild Card game against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Steelers officially ruled out their team MVP on Friday.
Bell hyperextended his right knee in last week's AFC North-clinching victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. Although Bell suffered no ligament damage, he was unable to practice this week.
The 22-year-old Bell was the second-leading rusher in the NFL this season, running for 1,361 yards and eight touchdowns. The Michigan State product also caught 83 passes for 854 yards and three scores.
The Steelers will try to replace Bell's production with rookies Josh Harris and Dri Archer. Pittsburgh also signed veteran Ben Tate earlier this week.
