Le'Veon Bell is on the mend.
The Steelers running back underwent successful surgery on his groin Monday, and said he is already feeling better.
Bell reportedly aggravated his groin in the AFC Championship Game in January, which led to him being benched during the Steelers' loss to the Patriots.
He later revealed he had been playing through the injury for a few weeks, even though the Steelers never included the injury in their reports.
The NFL launched an investigation into why Pittsburgh omitted Bell's injury from report, which remains open.
Clearly the organization expects Bell to return to tip-top shape — last month the Steelers placed the franchise tag on Bell for 2017, which will make him a cool $12.7 million if they don't reach a long-term contract agreement by July 15.
I appreciate everyone's thoughts & prayers…surgery went really well, & groin already feels better than it did before! I'll be stronger! ✊🏾
