We are now four weeks into the 2018 NFL regular season and one of the best running back on the planet has yet to suit up.

In case you have been in a bubble for the past month, Pittsburgh Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell has been holding out and has been fined a total of $3,412,000 over the span of the four games he has missed.

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, Bell expects to report to the Steelers during their Week 7 bye.

Adam Schefter is reporting that just because Bell will be returning does not mean the Steelers have stopped listening to potential trade offers.

Wait, what?!?! Detroit Lions’ Matt Patricia has sorry excuse for not playing Kerryon Johnson more

On his first carry of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys, Detroit Lions rookie Kerryon Johnson ran for 32 yards. Following that, he had just nine more touches for the remainder of the game.

Instead of Johnson carrying the workload, the Lions coaching staff decided to give LeGarrette Blount almost an equal part of the job. On seven carries, Blount rushed for a grand total of 12 yards and he did not look good doing so.

When asked about why Johnson was not getting more touches, Lions’ head coach Matt Patricia gave what can only be called a “sorry” excuse.

From LionsWire:

“Again, start, not start depends on personnel groups, who’s in the game, things like that,” Patricia responded. “It doesn’t matter who’s in the game, whoever’s not in the game.”

Wait, what?!?!

Are you serious with that load of crap response? What in the hell is Patricia even trying to say? It does not matter who’s in the game? I seriously spit my soup out when I read that!!!

Ok, Matt, let me help you out with something…

KERRYON JOHNSON IS BY FAR THE BEST RUNNING BACK ON YOUR ROSTER! GIVE HIM THE BALL!

Now I have to finish cleaning up beef barley soup off of my desk!
