Bell was inactive for Sunday's game versus Atlanta after suffering a knee injury the week prior. He has been officially shut down for the rest of 2018, prompting the Packers to add some depth along the offensive line in the form of Nico Siragusa.
Bell (knee) is inactive for Sunday's Week 14 tilt against Atlanta.
Bell's status comes as no surprise after he was held out of practice all week. He's one of three starting offensive lineman that are inactive for Green Bay. Look for Justin McCray or Lucas Patrick to draw the start at right guard in place of Bell.
Bell is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals due to a knee injury.
Bell left the field during the second quarter. Justin McCray will draw the start at right guard as long as Bell remains sidelined. With Bryan Bulaga (knee) also questionable to return, the Packers' offensive line could prove a liability Week 13.
Bell would be replacing Justin McCray (shoulder) with the first-unit. McCray's injury is not expected to keep him sidelined long-term, but Bell could see a big role in the immediate future. He suited up for 12 games in Dallas last year but saw just two starts.
Bell has made 74 starts since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2011, and he spent 2017 with the Cowboys. The 29-year-old is comfortable at right tackle, but that position is manned by veteran Bryan Bulaga. Therefore, Bell will likely vie for the right guard position along with Justin McCray. If he loses that competition, Bell could serve as the next man up behind the oft-injured Bulaga.
