Jacob Bell has scope on his left knee

A rough two-year stint with the St. Louis Rams got rougher when left guard Jacob Bell underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Tuesday to remove “loose bodies.”

Bell, who is due to earn $5 million this season as he enters the third year of a $36 million, six-year contract, finished last season on injured reserve with a torn hamstring. He also suffered a concussion in 2009. When he has played for the Rams, he hasn’t played very well.

“Last week, Monday or Tuesday, during a running program (he had) a little issue with his knee," coach Steve Spagnuolo said, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "He'll probably miss four to six weeks, which means he won't be in the OTAs but he'll be fine for training camp."

Bell, 29, needs to play much better this season – and stay healthy – or it could be his final season in St. Louis.
