PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is facing a three-game suspension following his arrest on DUI and marijuana charges last August.

A person with direct knowledge of the suspension told The Associated Press Bell is expected to appeal the suspension. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the disciplinary action had not been announced by the league.

Bell was arrested last August following a traffic stop in a northern Pittsburgh suburb along with then-teammate LeGarrette Blount. The 23-year-old Pro Bowler ended up pleading no contest and was sentenced to 15 months of probation and entered into a diversion program.

Blount, now a running back with New England, received a one-game suspension from the league last week.

Bell's suspension was first reported by ESPN.
