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

Bell, who did not play in Week 5 against the Bills due to a concussion suffered in Week 4 against the Jets, had 18 carries for 74 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as two catches on three targets for 23 receiving yards in Sunday's 17-3 win over the Vikings.

Bell (concussion) is active for Sunday's game at Minnesota, the Lions' official site reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The reins of the Lions' backfield are fully in Bell's hands with Reggie Bush (ankle) out of the picture. During Bush's pair of DNPs last year, Bell averaged 21.5 carries for 66 yards and four catches (on six targets) for 63.5 yards, with one rushing touchdown apiece in each outing.
Bell (concussion) is probable for Sunday's game against Minnesota.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell will hopefully make up for lost time this week for his owners, as Reggie Bush (ankle) did not practice all week, leaving open the possibility of Bell seeing a heavier workload than usual. The Vikings run defense has been only average to this point, and Bell might see more passing game targets with Calvin Johnson (ankle) doubtful.
Bell (concussion) practiced fully Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell's activity level substantiates the fact that he was cleared for physical activity late last week. With Reggie Bush (ankle) ailing, Bell could be heading the backfield once Sunday arrives. Even if Bush's status isn't decided by the end of the week, fellow running back Theo Riddick (hamstring) fit in every drill as well, meaning his presence could eat into Bell's Week 6 workload.
Bell (concussion) returned to practice Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Despite receiving clearance for physical activity late last week, Bell failed to take the field Sunday against the Bills. On Wednesday, though, Bell and Theo Riddick (hamstring) fit in some work, while Reggie Bush (ankle) remained on the sideline. Clearly, Bell would be the No. 1 option, if the preceding holds through Sunday's outing at Minnesota, but the week of preparation will ultimately determine the RB pecking order.
Though Bell (concussion) was cleared for physical activity last week, the running back indicated that he isn't sure if will be cleared for contact drills this week, the Detroit Free Press reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Bell's progress is thus worth monitoring closely in the coming days, especially with teammate Reggie Bush dealing with an ankle injury and Theo Riddick also banged up. Bell is, however, feeling better at this stage and remains hopeful with regard to his status for Sunday's game against the Vikings. "Yeah, I'm feeling real good," Bell said Monday. "Do I hope to play? I hope to play every week." More on the status of the injured Lions' running backs once the team practices on Wednesday.
Bell (concussion) could return to action as soon as Sunday against the Vikings, mlive.com reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

The report notes that Bell was cleared late last week for physical activity, and if he's able to absorb contact at practice this week, he could potentially suit up this coming weekend. His possible return comes at a good time, with fellow RB Reggie Bush day-to-day with an ankle injury.

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.
