Jets running back Le’Veon Bell is getting an MRI on his knee on Monday.

Bell suffered an apparent knee injury during Sunday’s loss to Miami.

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.

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.
