Kevin Smith RB DET Aug 31 '787 Comments
Kevin Smith played 19 snaps to Joique Bell's 10 in Week 11 versus the Packers.
We noted Sunday that Smith had overtaken Bell on third downs. The Lions didn't have a lead in the fourth quarter, so there's no telling if Bell still retains the "closer" role. Coach Jim Schwartz didn't address the changing roles on Monday and apparently wasn't asked about Bell's demotion. We should have a better read on the situation before Thursday's game versus the Texans.
