Injury Alert: Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell has Groin Surgery

Usually players coming off injuries during the season have their surgeries nearly immediately after the season itself ends. Now, almost two months form the team playing their final game, Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell has finally had surgery to repair the groin he injured in the AFC Championship Game against the New England Patriots. 

Bell is expected to be sidelined six weeks with the injury, which calls into question his availability for both the start of the team's off-season program next month and its first minicamp in May. 

This won't really have an impact on Bell's fantasy relevance for the 2017 season. Depending on who you ask, it's either Bell or Ezekiel Elliott as the top fantasy running back right now. 

Bell is coming off a 2016 season that saw him put up 1,884 total yards and nine touchdowns in just 12 games. That included a ridiculous 75 receptions, making him an absolute stud in PPR-heavy formats.
