(NEW YORK) — Steelers running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were charged with marijuana possession on Wednesday.
The Steelers were on their way to Philadelphia for their third preseason game against the Eagles Thursday and were found with marijuana at a traffic stop.
Ross Township traffic officer Sean Stafiej pulled over a Camaro operated by Bell around 1:30 p.m. after smelling a strong odor of marijuana.
“We are aware of the reports and still gathering information,” Steelers spokesman Burt Lauten said. “We will have no further comment at this time.”
The NFL is also expected to review the incident.
Both runningbacks are still expected to play against the Eagles.
