Bell has signed a one-year deal with the Chiefs, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports. Bell spent last season with the Cowboys, logging 11 catches for 110 yards in 16 games. He's now set to return to Kansas City, where he played in 2019 and will provide the team with a capable blocking tight end presence behind star pass catcher Travis Kelce.
Bell (neck) caught 11 of 15 targets for 110 yards over 16 games for the Cowboys in 2020. After Blake Jarwin (knee) was lost for the season in Week 1, Dalton Schultz moved into the No. 1 tight end spot for Dallas, but Bell remained purely a blocker for the most part. Even so, the 110 receiving yards was the veteran TE's best total since he was a rookie with the 49ers in 2015. A free agent once again, Bell could find himself playing for his sixth team in six years in 2021.
Bell (neck) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Giants due to a stinger, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. If Bell is unable to return to Sunday's regular-season finale, Sean McKeon will step in as the No. 2 tight end behind Dalton Schultz. The 29-year-old wasn't targeted before leaving the field Sunday.
Blake (illness) is listed as active heading into Sunday's game against the Eagles. Bell couldn't practice Thursday while dealing with a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the tight end has proven capable of recuperating in time for Dallas' Week 16 kickoff. The 29-year-old remains without a missed game all season, but his passing-game involvement has been sparse. Bell has accumulated three catches for 23 yards over his past three outings, as Dalton Schultz stands firmly fixed atop the depth chart with nine catches for 92 yards and a touchdown in the same span.
Bell (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 29-year-old was added to the injury report Thursday with the non-COVID-19 illness, and his status for Sunday remains in question. Sean McKeon would serve as Dallas' secondary tight end behind Dalton Schultz if Bell is unable to play this weekend.
