PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will start on Sunday against Miami, just over a week after sustaining a concussion in a loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Bell practiced during the week and was cleared by team officials on Saturday. He left the 22-20 loss to the Ravens in the fourth quarter after having his helmet knocked off in a collision at the goal line.

Mike Adams will start at left tackle in place of Kelvin Beachum, who is dealing with a knee injury. Defensive end Brett Keisel is out with a left foot issue. Ziggy Hood will start in Keisel's place.

Miami cornerback Dimitri Patterson is active for the Dolphins but will not start. Patterson has played only five game this season due to a groin injury.
