The Pittsburgh Steelers are not expecting running back Le'Veon Bell to return to the team this week, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Steelers are on their bye this week, and the players are off Thursday through Sunday. Bell could next report Oct. 22.

Sources told ESPN's Jeremy Fowler earlier this month that Bell intended to report to the Steelers during the Week 7-8 time frame.

Despite that statement, as of Sunday, Bell still had not been in touch with team officials or players, sources told Schefter.

After Conner's 135-yard, two-touchdown performance in Sunday's win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Bell took to Twitter.

After its Week 7 bye, Pittsburgh (3-2-1) will next take the field in Week 8 at home against the Cleveland Browns. Who knows what Le'Veon is thinking. He's already missed out on millions of dollars with this stunt.
