The Ravens have released an ex-Steelers Pro Bowl running back, according to reports.
Running back Le’Veon Bell was cut by the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens have reportedly released the 29-year-old running back, according to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler.
Bell played in five games and rushed for 83 yards and two touchdowns.
“According to a source, the Ravens have released Le’Veon Bell,” says Fowler.
“On his social media, Bell alluded to this.”
Bell rushed for 83 yards and two touchdowns in five games for Baltimore.”
On Tuesday, November 16, Bell announced his release on social media.
“It hurts, but it’s been a blessing to be here,” Bell said.
“I’ve enjoyed every second of this brief period andamp; have a whole new perspective on what this city is like andamp; it’s a great place to be. I appreciate Eric Decasta and John Harbaugh for the opportunity to be referred to as a Raven.”
Following a rash of injuries to their running back core, the veteran running back signed with the Ravens.
Starting running backs JK Dobbins and Gus Edwards were ruled out for the season due to torn ACLs prior to the start of the season.
As a result, the Ravens signed a slew of veteran running backs, including Bell, Devonta Freeman, and Latavius Murray, to take their place.
Bell, on the other hand, appears to be an outlier.
Murray could return from injury in Week 11, but Freeman has started the last three games.
With the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell had a career high early on.
During his rookie season in 2013, the former second-round pick made an immediate impact, rushing for 860 yards and eight touchdowns.
He eventually developed into an even more dominant runner, rushing for at least 1,200 yards in three of the next four seasons and being named to the Pro Bowl in all of them.
Bell has also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and the New York Jets.

Steelers outside linebacker TJ Watt has very little structural damage to his hip and knee, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
He is, however, still regarded as a week-to-week employee.
“He’ll have an MRI on all of his injuries today,” Rapoport said.
“That implies he’ll be out for a while.”
