Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell underwent surgery on Monday to address his core muscle injury, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's expected to be sidelined for 6 weeks. It's unclear why he waited so long to go under the knife, but he should still be healthy in time for spring workouts -- and definitely for the start of training camp in July. Durability remains a concern for a guy who's been injured in all 4 of his NFL seasons. But Bell has also finished all 4 seasons among the top 10 RBs in PPR points per game, including #1 finishes in 2014 and 2016.
Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) isn't listed on the final Week 15 injury report. RB Bilal Powell (ankle) has been ruled out, while RB Ty Montgomery (foot, hip) is questionable. Bell should dominate backfield touches against the Ravens on Thursday night.
Jets RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) put in a full practice on Tuesday. He's on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. The Jets figure to have trouble scoring in that one, but Bell's volume keeps him in the RB2 mix.
Jets HC Adam Gase said Monday that RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) is "pretty close to 100 percent." That puts him on track to return for Thursday night's game against the Ravens. Bell will be a volume-based RB2 in that tough spot.
The Jets have downgraded RB Le'Veon Bell (illness) to out for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. That leaves the backfield to RBs Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery. Over the past 5 weeks, Powell has totaled 25 carries and 6 targets to Montgomery's 8 carries and 4 targets. We'd bet on Powell leading the way tomorrow, but there's no way to know for sure what the split will look like. There's at least upside vs. Miami's 28th-ranked RB defense.
Jets RB Le’Veon Bell (illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Dolphins after missing practice on Thursday and Friday. Players almost always play when on the injury report with illnesses — but HC Adam Gase said Friday that he’s “unsure” if Bell will be available vs. Miami. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. Bell’s absence would leave the Jets with a committee backfield of Bilal Powell and Ty Montgomery.
