Oh, no Le’Veon.
Jets running back Le’Veon Bell‘s comeback season stalled against the Bills with the running back injuring his hamstring late in the first half. He came back into the game briefly, though was forced to leave again.
Adam Gase addressed Bell’s injury on Monday, telling reporters that “it could be a couple weeks” for Bell’s returning, adding that he didn’t want “to put a timetable on it.”
The 28-year-old back is in year two of his four-year, $52.5 million deal with the Jets. Bell is coming off a career-low 2019 season in rushing yards (789), touchdowns (3), and yards per carrying (3.2).
Bell finished in the loss to the Bills with only six carries for 14 yards.
