Le’Veon Bell is one of the league’s most dynamic players, but he’s no good to the Steelers on his couch, where he’s been since the team began training camp in late July. The Steelers franchised Bell in the offseason, guaranteeing that he’ll make $12.1 million in 2017 if the two sides couldn’t come to terms on a long-term deal.

That long-term deal was never agreed upon and instead of signing his franchise tender, Bell decided to hold out. Now, with two preseason games remaining and reports that Bell might not show up till September, we’re all left to wonder when he’ll show up in Pittsburgh.

A source tells ESPN.com’s Jeremy Fowler that it would be a surprise if Bell isn’t back with the Steelers shortly after the team’s Week 3 preseason game against the Coltsnext Saturday.

The Steelers welcomed Martavis Bryant back to the lineup in Sunday’s preseason win over the Falcons. Bryant missed the 2016 season due to a suspension, and like Bell, is a game-changing talent when he’s on the field.
