PITTSBURGH (AP) Steelers All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell is done for the season after Pittsburgh placed him on injured reserve Monday.
Bell hurt his right knee in a 16-10 loss against Cincinnati on Sunday.
In six games this season - he missed two while serving a league suspension - Bell rushed for 556 yards on 113 carries with three touchdowns. He had 24 receptions for 136 yards.
Veteran DeAngelo Williams will become the starter. The Steelers (4-4) also signed free agent running back Isaiah Pead to take Bell's spot on the roster.
Bell caught a pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter Sunday and his right knee twisted awkwardly underneath him during a tackle by linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
