Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: No action in Super Bowl LV
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell did not touch the ball during Kansas City's 31-9 loss to the Buccaneers in Super Bowl LV.

Bell's offensive opportunities completely dried up with Clyde Edwards-Helaire back in the lineup, especially with Darrel Williams keeping a firm grip on the Chiefs' change-of-pace role. The soon-to-be 29-year-old appeared in nine regular-season games with Kansas City after being cut by the Jets in Week 5, and he logged 63 carries for 254 yards (4.0 YPC) and two scores in that span. Bell also caught 13 of 17 targets for 99 yards with the Chiefs. Now heading for free agency, the memory of Bell's electric on-field abilities with the Steelers from 2013-17 should be enough for him to earn another shot elsewhere in the league, but there's no guarantee that he holds more than a depth role by the time the 2021 campaign kicks off.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for the Super Bowl against Tampa Bay on Sunday.

Bell closed out the week with a full practice and will be ready for his first Super Bowl. It isn't clear he'll have a meaningful role, as he got just two carries and three targets in the divisional round of the playoffs, working well behind Darrel Williams in a game Clyde Edwards-Helaire missed. With the rookie now healthy, Bell looks like Option C in the KC backfield.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Limited again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday, Adam Teicher of ESPN.com reports.

Bell should be ready for the Super Bowl, but snaps and touches could be hard to come by with both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams healthy in the KC backfield. It's also a tough matchup, as the Bucs field a top-five run defense for the second straight year.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Logs limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) was a limited participant at practice Wednesday.

At this point, Bell -- who sat out the Chiefs' AFC Championship Game win over the Bills -- is expected to be available for Sunday's Super Bowl LV matchup with the Buccaneers. That said, his role for that contest is looking uncertain, as he looks to be behind both Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams on the depth chart at this point. Given the uncertain health of Bell's knee along with his inability to contribute on special teams, it wouldn't be overly surprising if he was inactive for the Super Bowl, even if he avoids carrying a designation into the game.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Not practicing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) didn't practice Friday.

Sammy Watkins (calf) followed the same practice route this week, going LP, LP, DNP. Both players are estimated as 'questionable' on the Friday injury report, but there's still plenty of time for the designation to change before the Super Bowl on Feb. 7.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Limited at practice again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

The Chiefs expect Bell to return for the Super Bowl, but he won't necessarily have an important role in the offense. Limited practices Wednesday and Thursday put him on track to make it back to full participation at some point next week.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Limited to start week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs listed Bell (knee) as a limited participant on Wednesday's estimated practice report.

Bell missed the Chiefs' win over the Bills in the AFC Championship Game last weekend due to knee swelling, but the Chiefs expect him to be available for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl matchup with the Buccaneers. Either way, his status shouldn't have much impact on the game plan, as Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Darrel Williams both have been working ahead of Bell.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Should be ready for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is expected to be available to play in Super Bowl LV, ESPN's Dianna Russini reports.

Assuming Bell is available a week from Sunday, it remains to be seen what his role might be versus the Buccaneers. Though Clyde Edwards-Helaire was able to play in the AFC Championship Game, it was Darrel Williams who served as Kansas City's lead back in the team's 38-24 win over the Bills. Bell therefore seems likely to work in a complementary role if he suits up against Tampa Bay.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Inactive versus Bills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is inactive for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

While Bell is unavailable, fellow running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) is listed as active for the first time since Week 15. That said, it remains to be seen how much Edwards-Helaire will be used versus the Bills, with Darrel Williams, who led Kansas City's backfield in last weekend's divisional-round win over the Browns, also on hand Sunday.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Looks unlikely for Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, is considered unlikely to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Meanwhile, rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) -- who is also listed as questionable -- looks poised to be available, though the extent of his role will likely be determined based on how he feels in pregame warmups and early in Sunday's contest. The expected return of Edwards-Helaire should alleviate the likely absence of Bell, who had already appeared to fall to third on the depth chart with Darrel Williams dominating the work out of the backfield in last week's divisional-round win over the Browns, which Edwards-Helaire sat out. Williams played 79 percent of the snaps and earned 17 touches in that contest, while a healthy Bell played just 16 percent of the snaps and recorded two carries for six yards.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Designated as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Bell was added to the injury report Thursday and closed out the week missing back-to-back practices. Meanwhile, fellow RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) was a limited participant throughout the week and is hoping to suit up for the first time since Week 15. Bell got just two carries and 11 snaps in the wild-card round, so he'll likely be stuck behind Darrel Williams even if CEH doesn't play and Bell does.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Bothered by swollen knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell was held out of Thursday's practice after he experienced some swelling in his knee, Sam McDowell of The Kansas City Star reports.

Bell was listed on the injury report with a knee issue last week, but he was a full practice participant Wednesday through Friday and ended up active for the 22-17 win over Cleveland. He finished the game with only two carries and 11 snaps, so his presence (or lack thereof) shouldn't have much impact on the Chiefs' gameplan for the AFC Championship Game. Bell might even be a healthy-ish scratch if Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) is cleared to play.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Takes back seat to Williams
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell rushed twice for six yards and failed to catch either of his targets in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Browns in the AFC divisional round.

Bell was a non-factor while Darrel Williams gained 94 yards on 17 touches in Clyde Edwards-Helaire's (knee) absence. Even if Edwards-Helaire is unable to return for next week's AFC Championship Game against the Bills, Bell's unlikely to make much of an impact given his lack of usage in this one.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Set to lead backfield
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell is expected to lead the Chiefs backfield Sunday against the Browns with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) inactive, Matt McCullen of the team's official site reports.

Edwards-Helaire was absent in three different games this season -- Weeks 13, 16 and 17 -- giving Bell a chance to be the main running back. While Bell didn't get any run in the regular-season finale, he earned 21 touches in the other two contests en route to 94 yards from scrimmage and no touchdowns. There's a chance he yields touches to Darrel Williams and perhaps even Darwin Thompson, but Bell is the most noteworthy option at RB for the Chiefs.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Ready for divisional round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell does not carry an injury designation for Sunday's AFC divisional-round matchup against the Browns.

Bell was listed on Kansas City's injury report all week due to a knee issue, but he logged a trio of unrestricted practice sessions. Meanwhile, top running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip) has missed back-to-back practices and is officially listed as questionable. If Edwards-Helaire is unable to go versus the Browns, Bell and Darrel Williams will stand to handle the top roles in Kansas City's backfield.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: No action in regular-season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (coach's decision) didn't see the field in Sunday's 38-21 loss to the Chargers.

While Bell didn't take any snaps, he was in uniform for the contest and available if needed. Instead, the Chiefs leaned on Darwin Thompson to handle most of the backfield reps, with Darrel Williams also factoring in for a few snaps. The Chiefs were likely just preserving the health of Bell and Williams for the postseason with little on the line in Week 17, but both players could be headed for smaller roles regardless when Kansas City returns from a first-round playoff bye to play Jan. 16 or 17. Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle/hip), who has missed the Chiefs' last two games, could be recovered from his injuries for the divisional round and may step back in as the team's lead option out of the backfield.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: In uniform Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chargers, Herbie Teope of The Kansas City Star reports.

That said, with Kansas City having clinched a first-round playoff bye, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network relays that Bell seems unlikely to see much action Sunday, as the team can afford to rest a number of key players and those with nagging injuries. With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) inactive, Rapoport believes that Darwin Thompson is in line to see the bulk of the team's carries in Week 17, with Darrel Williams also on hand.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Expected to be available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bell (knee) is expected to suit up Sunday against the Chargers, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

However, with Kansas City having clinched the AFC's No. 1 playoff seed, Rapoport adds that if Bell does play in Sunday's 4:25 ET game, "it'll be very little." With Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) already ruled out, the report suggests that Darwin Thompson is slated to get the bulk of Kansas City's carries in Week 17.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Deemed questionable for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chiefs list Bell (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Withheld from the Chiefs' first two Week 17 practices due to his right knee injury, Bell returned to the field in limited capacity Friday to keep himself in consideration to play in the regular-season finale. Since the Chiefs have already locked up the AFC's No. 1 seed, head coach Andy Reid has already said that several key players will be rested this weekend. Regarding Bell, Nate Taylor of The Athletic notes that Reid was unwilling to say how much the veteran running back might play if active Sunday, so depth options Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson should be factors out of the backfield to at least some extent. Kansas City will be without top back Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who has been ruled out for a second straight game while he battles a high-ankle sprain and a hip strain.

Chiefs' Le'Veon Bell: Misses another practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Clyde Edwards-Helaire (ankle) also didn't practice, and it's possible that neither back suits up Sunday against the Chargers, with Kansas City having clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed and a first-round playoff bye. Next up for carries if that happens would be Darrel Williams and Darwin Thompson, with Elijah McGuire a candidate to be elevated from the team's practice squad.
