LATROBE, Pennsylvania — Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell is ready to move forward after the NFL cut his suspension from three games to two following his arrest last summer on DUI and drug charges.

Bell appealed the initial suspension and the league cut one week off his suspension as part of a settlement. Bell said Wednesday he "is finally glad to get it over with" so he can focus on getting prepared for the 2015 season.

The All-Pro didn't go into detail about the nature of his appeal.

Bell was arrested last August following a traffic stop along with then-teammate LeGarrette Blount. The 23-year-old All-Pro ended up pleading no contest and was sentenced to 15 months of probation and entered into a diversion program.
