Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell is out of practice Friday, Aug. 8.
Huddle Up: Bell, who missed time in OTAs and mini camp rehabbing an injured knee, was excused Friday for undisclosed personal reasons, and there's a good chance he could suit up for the team's preseason opener Saturday night vs. the Browns.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) missed organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp while recovering from a knee injury, but he looked good cutting and accelerating with ease during team portions of practice Wednesday, July 30.
Huddle Up: Bell looks 100 percent and even with Reggie Bush in the same backfield he should see plenty of carries this season, especially near the goal line. Bell currently has an ADP of Round 5, mainly because he's proven to be one of the best all-around backs in the NFL when healthy.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) did not participate in any of the minicamp practices this week but should be ready for the start of training camp.
Huddle Up: This is definitely a situation to keep an eye on as Bell very well could receive the Lions' share (pun intended) of the RB touches in Motown.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (knee) did not participate in organized team activities (OTAs) Tuesday, May 20, due to a knee injury.
Huddle Up: Bell is receiving a surprising amount of preseason fantasy love as a member of the Lions' backfield committee, but if he's going to be as nicked up as Reggie Bush tends to be neither will be a particularly reliable fantasy option. Hopefully Bell's OTA absence is merely precautionary, but it's worth keeping an eye on heading into training camp--and fantasy drafts.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell appears to be battling a knee injury based on a photo posted to his Instagram account Wednesday, May 7. Bell was in attendance for the Lions' three-day voluntary minicamp two weeks ago but didn't participate. The caption of the of the photo reads, 'Be (back) in no time.'
Huddle Up: We're still 4 months out from the games and fantasy numbers that count, but it's something to keep an eye on nonetheless with Bell slated for a big role in the Lions' backfield this fall.

Huddle Up: Bell opened some fantasy eyes last season with his career-high 1,197 yards from scrimmage and 8 TDs complementing starter Reggie Bush, and he'll be a popular No. 2 RB again in drafts this summer.

Detroit Lions restricted free-agent RB Joique Bell said he hopes to sign a long-term deal with the team before the start of free agency. The Lions are expected to at least give him a first- or second-round tender offer.
Huddle Up: Even though Reggie Bush remains the Lions' top RB, most every team is going with the two-RB approach these days and Bell more than proved his worth last season with a career-high 1,197 yards from scrimmage and 8 TDs.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles') practiced Thursday, Nov. 21.
Huddle Up: Bell, who was injured late in the Week 11 game against the Steelers, got back to work after sitting out Wednesday. Bell had 12 touches in the game -- his most since starter Reggie Bush missed Week 3 -- but look for that to dip back down this week after much was made of Bush's poor game Sunday.

Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ribs) had X-rays after the Week 6 game against the Cleveland Browns due to an injury to his ribs. The X-rays were negative. He said Sunday, Oct. 13, that he was still in pain in the locker room after the game.
Huddle Up: This could mean some time for Mikel Leshoure, but it doesn't sound too serious for Bell.
