Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell took multiple Twitter jabs at Cincinnati Bengals RB Joe Mixon on Sunday

After last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cincinnati Bengals rookie running back Joe Mixon grumbled about his lack of usage.

In his post-game comments, Mixon said he could have done more than Steelers star Le’Veon Bell did if he only had the same amount of carries.
