Bell, who missed the practice portions of the Lions' offseason workouts and minicamp due to a knee injury, is feeling good in advance of training camp, the Detroit Free Press reports. "I'm making a lot of progress, a lot of progress," Bell noted. "Actually started back running full speed, got cleared for full go probably two weeks, a week after minicamp. I'm feeling 100 percent. I'm feeling great."

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

Bell (knee) likely won't be available to fully practice until training camp begins in late July, MLive.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell has yet to participate in OTAs and at the moment, it's unclear whether he'll be available for mandatory minicamp from June 10-12. Nonetheless, Bell expects to be ready for the start of training camp, when he'll pair with teammate Reggie Bush to form a one-two backfield tandem.
Bell attended, but did not participate in the Lions' recent voluntary minicamp, which ran from April 22-24, mlive.com reports.

Under new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi, Bell will continue to work in tandem with Reggie Bush, the Detroit Free Press reports. "I think they both have their specific role," Lombardi noted, while adding that "it's hard for one running back to get all the carries. So much like they did last year, I see these guys kind of having a split role and both being very productive."

Bell agreed to a two-year, $7 million extension, including $4.3 million guaranteed, with the Lions on Monday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

After two productive campaigns, the former undrafted free agent has cashed in. To date, Bell has been a modicum of health, as opposed to backfield mate Reggie Bush, thereby providing insurance in case the latter suffers through injuries in the coming seasons. Through two full seasons, Bell, a dual threat, has totaled 248 carries for 1,064 yards (4.3 YPC) and 11 touchdowns, while accumulating 105 receptions (on 138 targets) for 1,032 yards.
Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said that Bell, who is a restricted free agent, will be back with the Lions in 2014, MLive.com reports. "He's going to be here," Mayhew said Friday. "We met with his agent a couple of nights ago and had a good discussion. There is a possibility we might work on a long-term deal with him, but either way, he's going to be with us."

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

If the two sides can't reach a long-term agreement, the Lions will likely use a second-round RFA tender on Bell, who went undrafted and wouldn't be attached to draft compensation under an original-round tender. The 27-year-old running back isn't enticing enough for a team to part with a second-round draft pick, and the second-round tender of approximately $2 million surely looks good from the Lions' perspective. Assuming he sticks with the Lions -- a rather safe assumption -- Bell will likely reprise his role from 2013 as Reggie Bush's backup. In 2013, Bell rode that role to 650 rushing yards, 547 receiving yards on 53 receptions, and eight touchdowns. His numbers did get a boost from Bush missing two games due to injuries, but it's probably fair to expect the same from Bush in 2014.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
