Joique Bell: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Bell (knee/Achilles) was activated from the PUP list Monday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After head coach Jim Caldwell relayed Sunday that the Lions would play Bell's activation from the PUP list "by ear," the 29-year-old running back was removed from the list just one day later. Bell's activity level will likely be capped off the bat, clouding his availability for Thursday's exhibition finale against the Bills. However, he can now embark upon regaining his standing as the Lions' No. 1 back, which has been held down by rookie Ameer Abdullah throughout the preseason.
Coach Jim Caldwell noted Saturday that Bell, who had offseason procedures to address knee and Achilles' issues, is "moving along really well" in his recovery, ESPN.com reports.

That said, Bell and the Lions are "still playing it by ear" as far as when he'll be activated from the team's PUP list. When that time arrives, however, the team expects Bell to be able to handle a full workload sooner rather than later. Once he's up to speed, Bell is in line re-enter the Lions' backfield mix at the head of a running back committee arrangement that will also feature promising rookie Ameer Abdullah, pass-catching threat Theo Riddick, and possibly UDFA Zach Zenner.
Bell (knee/Achilles) expects to be carrying the load for the Lions' running game, David Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bell (knee/Achilles) remained out of practice and on the Lions' PUP list as of Wednesday.

With that in mind, it seems pretty safe to assume that Bell won't suit up Friday against the Jaguars, but the continued feeling is that, upon his return, Bell remains on track to re-enter the Lions' backfield mix at the head of a running back committee arrangement that will also feature promising rookie Ameer Abdullah and pass-catching threat Theo Riddick.
The Lions are likely to deploy a running back committee even after Bell (knee/Achilles) returns, Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

While he's not the biggest or fastest running back in the league, Bell made a major incursion on Reggie Bush's playing time last season, gaining 40 percent of the carries while looking even more explosive in the pass game than he did the year before. He's a true weapon in the open field, having produced more than 1,000 yards on 105 catches over the last two seasons, and he worked his way into a goal-line role last year too. Bell dealt with a knee issue over the offseason, but it doesn't sound like anything that'll limit him come training camp. He's played in all 16 games the last two years, so he's been durable in his backup/timeshare role. Like Bush, Bell may see his carry total reduced this year with the Lions remodeling their offense in the mold of the Saints, but both players could see a spike in receptions, making Bell a compelling and relatively low-priced option for PPR formats.

2013

At 5-11, 220, Bell doesn't offer great speed, but he has good open-field vision, and his strong base makes him hard to bring down. His 5.0 YPC (on 82 attempts) was easily tops among Lions running backs, and his 52 receptions were fifth among NFL backs. Despite seeing 115 fewer touches than Mikel Leshoure, Bell's 899 total yards were only 113 less than the Lions starter produced. Unfortunately for Bell, the addition of Reggie Bush figures to limit his role in the backfield this season, particularly as a receiver. He'll likely need an injury to Bush or Leshoure to match the 134 touches he had last year.

2012

The Lions' running back situation is a bit unsettled at the top due to injury, but Bell is in the second or third tier heading into camp. He'll only get a chance if injuries force Detroit's hand.

2011

Bell, fresh of a spectacular preseason, will start the year as the Saints' fourth running back behind Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Darren Sproles. However, with Sproles likely to serve as a Reggie Bush-esque jack-of-all-trades, an injury to either Thomas or Ingram could open the door for Bell to be a major contributor with Chris Ivory to start the year on the PUP list and coach Sean Payton's penchant for a dual running back system.

2010

Bell, a Wayne State product and the recipient of the Harlon Hill Award in 2009 as the best player in Division II football following a 2,084-rushing yards campaign with 29 touchdowns, signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent in the offseason. He's looking like a practice squad candidate, but if the Bills decided to rid themselves of the troublesome Marshawn Lynch via trade, there would be a chance for Bell to sneak into the No. 3 role.
