New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell will reportedly get an MRI on Thursday due to soreness in his shoulder.
Bell has been experiencing soreness in his shoulder. His status for Monday’s game is undetermined at this moment.
If Bell isn’t good to go, that would mean the Jets would be without their starting quarterback and running back against Cleveland.
New York quarterback Sam Darnold will be out on Monday and could miss multiple weeks after being diagnosed with mononucleosis, as announced on Thursday morning. The Jets will go with backup quarterback Trevor Siemian under center instead.
The other options the Jets have at running back are Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell, and Trenton Cannon. One of these individuals will have to take the majority of the carries if Bell can’t suit up for the contest.
New York is coming off a tough loss to the division rival-Buffalo Bills on Sunday. After taking a 16-0 lead, Gang Green allowed quarterback Josh Allen and the Bills to score 17 unanswered points. The Jets ended up turning the ball over on downs toward the end of the game which sealed the victory for Buffalo.
At 0-1, the Jets will be taking on a Cleveland team that also started off the year on a bad note. The Browns fell to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday by a score of 43-13.
