Le'Veon Bell getting an MRI today on his knee, per Gase. Still awaiting results. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) November 4, 2019
Bell suffered an apparent knee injury during Sunday’s loss to Miami.
Adam Gase, on Le’Veon Bell’s knee, said he’s still “waiting on the information.” It’s something he found out about this morning. He hasn’t seen him yet.— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) November 4, 2019
“I can’t say exactly where it happened because he never said anything during the game” #Jets
Bell is averaging only 3.3 yards per carry this season, but that is mainly due to the ineffectiveness of the offensive line. Deeper analysis suggests he is still an upper echelon running back in the NFL.
PFF running back elusive rating (formula that factors in missed tackles forced and yards after contact per attempt):— David Lombardi (@LombardiHimself) October 29, 2019
1. Josh Jacobs, Raiders
2. Alvin Kamara, Saints
3. Chris Carson, Seahawks
4. Nick Chubb, Browns
5. Le’Veon Bell, Jets
The Jets have struggled to get him going also because the coaching staff hasn’t figured out how to utilize his skillset as a pass catcher. They aren’t putting him in positions to make plays in space or beat defenders in coverage.
In spite of how little the team is getting from him, the Jets certainly don’t want to lose Bell and further deplete what might be the worst offense in the league.
