Chokes on you: Steelers’ Le’Veon Bell, JuJu Smith-Schuster add to list of celebrations

INDIANAPOLIS — For their latest theatrical creation, Le’Veon Bell and JuJu Smith-Schuster opted for a re-enactment.

Bell, the Steelers star running back, and Smith-Schuster, their rookie receiver, have developed celebrations to use after either scores this season after the NFL loosened its rules.

In their latest collaboration Sunday during a 20-17 win against the Colts, Smith-Schuster was approached by Bell after scoring midway through the third quarter to begin a comeback from a 14-point deficit.

Bell appeared to grab Smith-Schuster around the neck and pull him down. Most didn’t initially pick up on what the celebration was.

Turns out, the two were recreating an incident a week earlier when Jacksonville Jaguars defensive back Jalen Ramsey and Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green got into a scuffle.

Smith-Schuster and Bell have had memorable celebrations earlier this season, most notably the two of them playing hide-and-seek and also when Smith-Schuster mimed putting a lock on a bike a week after his bike had been stolen.

Later Sunday, the defense posed for a mock team photo after Ryan Shazier had an interception near the Colts goal line.
