Reports: Jets to activate RB Bell from IR
The New York Jets will activate running back Le’Veon Bell from injured reserve for Sunday’s game against the visiting Arizona Cardinals, multiple outlets reported.
Bell has been missed the past three games with a hamstring injury.
He got hurt late in the second quarter of the Sept. 13 season opener at Buffalo after falling awkwardly on an incomplete pass during a play that ended with a defensive holding penalty.
He took part in five plays in the second half of the Jets’ 27-17 loss, then came out for good once the seriousness of the injury became apparent.
Bell, 28, rushed six times for 14 yards and caught two passes for 32 yards against the Bills.
The Jets are off to an 0-4 start.
A two-time first-team All Pro and three-time Pro Bowl selection, Bell sat out the 2018 season in a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He signed a four-year, $52.5 million contract with the Jets when he became a free agent in March 2019.
Bell rushed for 789 yards in 15 games last season, marking his lowest rushing total since 2015. He caught 66 passes for 461 yards.
