Le’Veon Bell officially off of Steelers depth chart as his franchise tag remains unsigned

The saga of Le’Veon Bell vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers continued on Tuesday, with Bell — who is holding out from team activities and has yet to sign his franchise tag — being left off of the Steelers’ depth chart. James Conner is listed as the top running back and is slated to start Sunday against the Chiefs. The Steelers listed Jaylen Samuels (No. 2) and Stevan Ridley as the only other backs on their depth chart.

Bell forfeited about $855,000 from his 2018 salary by not signing his tag before last Saturday’s deadline, and he would have to forfeit the same amount every game he misses while declining to sign his $14.544 million franchise-tag tender.

Mike Tomlin reportedly said at his weekly press conference Tuesday that he has not contacted Bell and has received no clarity on when he might report.
