But their longtime backfield centerpiece looks to be back a day after Pittsburgh's preseason concluded.

Steelers star Le'Veon Bell has suggested on Twitter that he will return to the team on September 1, the day after Pittsburgh's final preseason game.

Bell did not show up for training camp or the Steelers' four preseason games while declining to sign a franchise tender that guarantees him $12.1 million for the 2017 season. The Steelers open the season away to the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, Sept. 10 at 1 p.m. The Steelers failed to sign Bell to a long-term deal before the July 17 deadline for franchise-tagged players.

Cortana coming to Echo devices brings over a lot of options, such as having access to Cortana's many productivity features. In a surprise announcement on Wednesday, Amazon and Microsoft announced that are integrating their digital assistants.

Bell hasn't signed his franchise tender and has been holding out through training camp.

Le'Veon Bell had made it crystal clear months ago that he wants to be paid like a #1 running back and a #2 WR, but so far the team hasn't budged on his demands. There's been plenty of drama over the summer with Bell's holdout culminating with a rap battle on social media between him and linebacker Bud Dupree. So according to ESPN, he applied for a full-time position at Dairy Queen. He has repeatedly said since that he was in touch with Bell. Still, the team never considered rescinding Bell's tender.
