  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Closes out 2021 on quiet note

    Bell was not targeted on his 21 offensive snaps in the regular-season finale versus the Broncos.

    The Belldozer compiled just nine total catches for 87 yards on 13 targets during the 2021 season and has just two seasons total with double-digit receptions. The veteran tight end still hasn't caught a touchdown pass in his career and enters the offseason set to become an unrestricted free agent following a one-year deal. With Noah Gray developing behind Travis Kelce, Bell may be ticketed for a spot elsewhere in 2022.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Four touches in Week 17

    Bell hauled in all of his three targets for 35 yards and rushed once for a pair of yards in Sunday's game against the Bengals.

    Bell's rush came in the form of a fourth-down trick play in which he motioned under center and took what was essentially a quarterback sneak for the first down. Bell has some experience under center from his college days but doesn't figure to be utilized in that capacity very often, rushing just four times all season. He also finished with a season-high three catches in the contest, though the 36 percent offensive snap count aligns with what he's seen all season and would suggest this is most likely an outlier.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: One grab in Week 16

    Bell compiled just one catch for 11 yards on his lone target Sunday versus the Steelers.

    Bell has notched no more than one catch in a game this season and has had more than one target just once. That didn't change even with Travis Kelce (COVID-19 protocols) out for the contest. Noah Gray benefited a little more, but neither tight end factored much into the equation. That is unlikely to change anytime soon, especially if Kelce is part of the mix again moving forward.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Expected back from COVID list

    Bell is expected to come off the reserve/COVID-19 list in advance of Sunday's game against the Steelers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    While such a move has yet to be confirmed by the team, Bell's Week 16 status is noteworthy, with Kansas City's top tight end Travis Kelce (illness) also on the reserve/COVID-19 list. If Bell is activated for Sunday's contest and Kelce isn't, Bell would be line to share TE work with Noah Gray versus Pittsburgh.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Returns from reserve/COVID-19 list

    Bell was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Matt Derrick of ChiefsDigest.com reports.

    Bell was on the COVID list for just three days before his activation Friday. Meanwhile, superstar tight end Travis Kelce has not yet passed through league COVID protocols, putting Bell in position to potentially start Sunday against Pittsburgh. Kelce's return in time for the contest has not yet been ruled out, however, so the situation remains murky for fantasy managers who roster Kelce and/or are considering picking up Bell.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Bell was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

    The tight end tested positive for COVID-19 Tuesday and now joins the long list of Chiefs players that have been added to the reserve/COVID-19 list in the last few days. With both Bell and Travis Kelce (illness) in COVID-19 protocols, Noah Gray is the last remaining active tight end on the roster at the moment.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: One target versus Chargers

    Bell was unable to haul in his lone target Thursday against the Chargers.

    Bell has played more than 20 percent of snaps in all but one game he's appeared in this season but hasn't recorded more than a single catch in any one game.That could change next week, however, with Travis Kelce being placed on the COVID-19/reserve list Monday. Bell would presumably take over as the team's top tight end if Kelce is unable to clear the league's protocol in time, with Noah Gray also figuring into the mix more often.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Overcomes back issue

    Bell (back) returned to full practice Wednesday.

    Bell missed the team's Week 6 matchup against Washington. However, he has seemingly recovered from the issue and should be in for a return in Week 7 against the Titans. Bell should continue to occupy the backup tight end role, and he's recorded four receptions for 33 yards through five games on the campaign.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Ruled out for Week 6

    Bell (back) won't play in Sunday's contest against Washington, Nate Taylor of The Athletic reports.

    Bell didn't practice at all this week, so his status for Sunday shouldn't be a surprise. The 30-year-old has played at least 17 offensive snaps in all five games this season, so Noah Gray and Jody Fortson should be in line for an increased workload behind Travis Kelce on Sunday.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Won't practice Thursday

    Bell (back) won't participate in Thursday's practice, Pete Sweeney of ArrowheadPride.com reports.

    Bell will be held out of practice for a second straight day as he continues to deal with a back injury. If he hopes to play Sunday against Washington, he'll presumably need to return to practice in some capacity Friday.

  • Chiefs' Blake Bell: Not practicing Wednesday

    Bell (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

    It's unclear when Bell picked up the injury, but it's worth monitoring throughout the week. Travis Kelce (neck) also is questionable for Week 6, so Noah Gray and Jody Fortson could be in line for extended work against Washington.
