Lions RB Joique Bell writes he's in 'a lot!!' of pain
Lions running back Joique Bell conveyed his answers to the media through pen and paper on Friday. When asked how he feels with his bruised ribs, Bell wrote "Good." And when someone asked how much pain he was in, Bell wrote, "A lot!!" The emphasis was his own.
Bell was limited throughout the practice week and is a game-time decision for Sunday's showdown versus the Bengals.
Bell is expected to play, but he shouldn't be in your lineup. Even when Reggie Bush was playing, Bell was still a flex-worthy play in PPR leagues for most of the year as he caught at least four passes in the first five games. But Bell's touches total has declined each week since Bush returned from his knee injury in Week 4, and he recorded just one reception last week.
