PITTSBURGH (AP) — If Le’Veon Bell is returning to the Pittsburgh Steelers later this month Sione Takitaki Jersey , he hasn’t let his teammates and coaches know.Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday he hasn’t heard from the All-Pro running back, who told ESPN on Monday that he will end his standoff with the team around Pittsburgh’s bye week, which begins after the Steelers face the Bengals on Oct. 14.“I have not talked to Le’Veon and I really have no Le’Veon update,” Tomlin said. “It’s the best approach for us to focus on the guys which are here and working … we’ll cross that bridge when we come to it. Nothing has changed in that regard.”Bell is in the midst of an extended absence as an act of self-preservation when he and the Steelers could not reach a long-term agreement after Pittsburgh placed the franchise tag on him in the spring.Technically he is not holding out because he has yet to sign his one-year deal, a decision that is costing him more than $850,000 a week. Bell did not offer a specific date for his return Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , but if he comes in around Oct. 15 it would give him two weeks to show the coaching staff what he can do before the Steelers play Cleveland on Oct. 28.The two-time defending AFC North champions have slumped during Bell’s self-imposed sabbatical. Pittsburgh is 1-2-1 a quarter of the way through the season thanks in large part to sluggish starts that have forced them to play from behind and abandon the running game. The Steelers ran for 19 yards on 11 carries in a loss to Baltimore on Sunday night.Several of Bell’s teammates — particularly the offensive line — expressed frustration in early September when Bell opted not to rejoin the team in time for the opener, as he did in 2017. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger hopes Bell gives Pittsburgh a much-needed jolt, but isn’t exactly expecting Bell to show up and save the day, whenever that day actually arrives.“If (Bell) can come back and help us and be ready to go, then we’ll be ready to welcome him back,” Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan. “A lot of things were said earlier in the year Austin Seibert Jersey , but that’s kind of in the past and we’ve moved on, and hopefully he’s moving on in the sense of getting back and ready to be with us.”Bell’s actual physical readiness is unknown. During the summer of 2017 he flooded his social media accounts with video of draining workouts. He was merely OK in his first 2017 appearance but quickly took off after that, eventually leading the NFL in touches and piling up 1,946 total yards.Concerns over his usage rate in 2018 perhaps hurting his value on the open market in 2019 played a role in Bell’s unprecedented move to remain away while the Steelers got off to their worst start since they dropped the first four games in 2013, his rookie season.That was also the last year Pittsburgh missed the playoffs. Though it’s still too early to panic, the way the Steelers have been losing has drawn major red flags for Tomlin. The defense is 30th in the league in yards allowed and 26th in points allowed and the offense can’t seem to get it going before finding itself in a hole. Pittsburgh has been outscored 42-6 in the first quarter this season.“We’ve got to get out of the gate quicker Trysten Hill Jersey ,” Tomin said. “You can’t spot people points in the National Football League. We’ve got to do a better job of starting game on both sides of the ball.”NOTES: The Steelers placed CB Nat Berhe on injured reserve with a torn pectoral and promoted CB Brian Davis from the practice squad to the 53-man roster. … WR Darrius Heyward-Bey (ankle) and ILB Vince Williams (hamstring) will be monitored this week and could play against Atlanta. … CB Mike Hilton (right elbow) and S Morgan Burnett (groin), both of whom did not play against Baltimore, may be available to face the Falcons. Urban Meyer is one of the most accomplished and decorated coaches in the annals of college football. Meyer, who was drafted by the Atlanta Braves in 1982 and played defensive back at the University of Cincinnati, accepted his first head coaching job at Bowling Green in 2001. Meyer dramatically altered the previously hapless Falcons’ fortunes and went 17-6 in two seasons leading that program. Capitalizing on his success in Ohio, Meyer agreed to oversee the University of Utah’s squad in 2003. In Salt Lake City Connor McGovern Jersey , Meyer transformed another program and captured two Mountain West Conference championships in two seasons with the Utes. After revolutionizing two middling schools on the gridiron, the demand for Meyer’s services skyrocketed and he signed a seven-year contract worth $14 million in December 2004 to coach the Florida Gators’ team.“The opportunity to compete at the highest level at one of the nation's most-respected academic institutions is something that was attractive for us,” said Meyer. “The passion of Gator fans is legendary in collegiate athletics and I am eager to be a part of that environment.”Meyer flourished on the sidelines in Gainesville and directed the Gators to national titles in the 2006 and 2008 campaigns. Due to ongoing health concerns, Meyer resigned as Florida’s coach in December 2009. Following a one-year hiatus, the Sporting News’ Coach of the Decade for the 2000s inked a six-year deal valued at $4.4 million annually to guide Ohio State. Three years later, with Meyer at the helm Foster Moreau Jersey , the Buckeyes upset Oregon 42-20 in January 2015 to win the first College Football Playoff championship game. Largely thanks to stellar recruiting efforts, Meyer’s taught outstanding players and gone 172-30 over 16 years. While many of Meyer’s talents proceeded to thrive in the NFL, others failed miserably at the professional level. With that noted, and circumstances like age and health notwithstanding, let’s look at the 15 worst players Meyer sent to the NFL.
