New York Jets running back Le’Veon Bell has been ruled as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
The New York Jets released their Friday injury report and it seems as if they’re dealing with some setbacks, to say the least. Linebacker C.J. Mosely and center Ryan Kalil have been ruled out against the Redskins this Sunday. The former will miss his fourth consecutive game and the latter will miss his third.
But, to add to that, the Jets have also listed running back Le’Veon Bell as questionable. The newly-acquired star is undergoing trouble with his knee and rib. He’s also dealing with an illness. Bell has yet to miss a game since he signed with the Jets this past offseason.
If Bell isn’t able to suit up on Sunday, the Jets would be left with Ty Montgomery, Bilal Powell, and Josh Adams. Montgomery and Powell have combined for just 27 carries and 94 yards this season. The former has caught six balls for 32 yards through the air.
Bell hasn’t put up eye-popping numbers like he has in years past. In nine games, he’s racked up 449 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 3.1 yards-per-carry. He’s also caught 44 balls for 276 yards and one touchdown through the air. The veteran has yet to eclipse 100 rushing yards in a game this season.
