Steelers' Le'Veon Bell completely healed from core muscle surgery

The deadline for the Pittsburgh Steelers to sign running back Le'Veon Bell to a long-term contract extension is nearly 24 hours away and while anything can certainly happen between now and Monday's 4PM EST cutoff, it doesn't appear as though the two sides are close to a deal at the time of this post.

The franchise tag was placed on Bell in February, which prevented him from becoming a free agent and gave the Steelers more time to negotiate a contract with Bell.

According to ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, Bell is fully recovered from groin surgery he underwent during the offseason and should be ready to practice without limitations.

Bell never signed his $12.1 million tender, which means he's not subject to fines if he doesn't show up for training camp.

If no deal is reached, the Steelers will have the option to use the franchise tag on Bell again in 2018.

Bell and the Steelers have until 4 p.m. Monday to work out a long-term extension. And without a new contract, there's always the chance he might not.
