Le’Veon Bell was a no-show Saturday as the Pittsburgh Steelers boarded their buses to Cleveland for their season opener. 

In the middle of a prolonged contract dispute, the running back did not show up to the Steelers facility in time to join the team for their Week 1 trip to play the Browns, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. 

As a result, Bell will sacrifice a $855,000 game check.

It’s starting to look like Bell will not report to the team until Week 10, the deadline to report if the 26-year-old wishes to accrue a season toward free agency.  Fantasy owners must be sick right about now.
