Bell (knee) is active for Sunday's contest at the Jets, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bell's opponent has fared well against running backs this season, giving up 201 total yards and no scores through three games. If another palatable option exists, owners may want to roll with another running back.

Bell (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Bell practiced fully Thursday and Friday, so he's ready to go for Sunday's game. The Jets pose a tough matchup for sure, but Bell should remain involved as a pass catcher and is the Lions' best on-paper candidate to get goal-line carries.

Bell (knee) participated fully in Thursday's practice, the Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bell's knee is far healthier than a week ago, when he was only able to log limited practices Wednesday through Friday. If probable status is again given to him on Friday's injury report, his normal workload of 10-to-15 carries, plus a handful of targets, should represent Sunday's outing at the Jets, as he works in tandem with Reggie Bush.

Bell (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

During the offseason, Bell missed OTAs and the mandatory minicamp due to a knee injury, which subsided by the beginning of training camp. However, the ailment reared its head last week and followed the running back into the current week of prep, limiting him in drills once again. He may log capped practices in order to keep his health intact, but as the week rolls along, his status for Sunday's game versus the Jets at New York should receive clarification.

Bell (knee) had 15 carries for 33 yards but he was not targeted in a 19-7 win over the Packers on Sunday.

Bell finished with three more carries than Reggie Bush, although Bush had 27 more rushing yards and a touchdown, plus six catches for 38 receiving yards. Bell's activity in the passing game this season is the definition of up-and-down, as he caught one pass on one target for five yards in Week 1, then caught six passes on 11 targets for 61 yards in Week 2 before Sunday's donut. With a Week 4 matchup against a Jets defense that is the best in the NFL against the run, Bell will need to be active in the passing game to generate much fantasy production.

Bell (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Bell (knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Lions' official site reports.

Bell was absent from OTAs and the mandatory minicamp due to a knee issue, but it's unclear if the current concern is at all related. When healthy, he's a part of a two-headed monster out of the Lions' backfield with Reggie Bush, totaling 25 carries for 87 yards, seven receptions for 66 yards, and one rushing touchdown through two games. Expect clarity on Bell's availability as the week rolls along.
