Veteran DeAngelo Williams will become the starter. The Steelers (4-4) also signed free agent running back Isaiah Pead to take Bell's spot on the roster.
Bell caught a pass from Ben Roethlisberger in the second quarter Sunday and his right knee twisted awkwardly underneath him during a tackle by linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
