Bell ran for 22 yards on six carries in Sunday's win over the Raiders. He was targeted once and delivered a 18-yard reception. One week after tallying a season-high 14 carries in the Lions' Week 10 win over Green Bay, Bell snapped back to reality with six carries - his average coming into Week 10. The Lions are owners of the league's worst rushing offense and Bell, despite entering the year as the team's starter, has not provided many answers. Bell has led the Lions in carries in three of the seven games in which he has played, with rookie Ameer Abdullah leading the team in carries six times in 10 games. The safe money is on that trend continuing, with the rookie getting the bulk of the carries with Bell and Theo Riddick filling in behind.
Bell (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Raiders. Bell was limited in practice Wednesday but was a full participant Thursday and Friday. He continues to lead the backfield, though the touches are split with Ameer Adbullah and Theo Riddick, the latter of which gets the most looks on passing downs.
Bell (shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Bell followed Wednesday's limited showing with full practices Thursday and Friday. The Lions have talked about getting Ameer Abdullah more involved, but with the team still bothered by the rookie's fumbling issues, Bell is expected to lead the backfield in Sunday's game. Theo Riddick will handle the passing-down role, which has actually been more lucrative than the early-down role this season.
Bell (shoulder) practiced in full Thursday, the Lions' official site reports. After a limited appearance Wednesday, Bell's unhindered practice Thursday paves the way for the RB to head the Lions' backfield yet again, despite has paltry 2.6 YPC on the season. Aiding his cause has been Ameer Abdullah's fumbling issues, as the rookie has dropped the rock three times, including one lost, to date.
Bell (shoulder) practiced on a limited basis Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Bell shouldered his most significant workload of the season during Sunday's win at Green Bay, earning 39 of the Lions' 65 offensive snaps, but the results were underwhelming, to say the least. Continuing a season-long trend, he turned 14 carries into a measly 17 yards and gathered in two of three passes for 18 yards. With a shoulder injury nagging him at the moment, he remains an unpalatable option to deploy in fantasy endeavors.
