Running back Le'Veon Bell carrying (and catching) heavy load for Steelers

Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is second in the NFL in yards from scrimmage and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger says the team still hasn't figured out how to get the best out of the second-year back.

Bell became the first back in franchise history to top 100 total yards in each of the team's first seven games when he rolled up 145 yards from scrimmage in Monday's 30-23 win over Houston.

Roethlisberger called Bell one of the best all-around backs in the NFL. The Steelers have relied heavily on Bell's versatility. He is second on the team with 36 receptions, many of them coming with Bell lining up as a wide receiver.

Bell and the Steelers (4-3) face Indianapolis (5-2) Sunday.
