Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals

Bell missed the Lions’ Week 4 game against Seattle with an ankle injury. In Week 3, Bell carried the ball only six times for 10 yards. 

Rookie Ameer Abdullah started at running back in the Lions’ 13–10 loss against the Seahawks, recording 33 yards on 13 carries.

Bell, 29, underwent surgery on his ankle and Achilles tendon back in January. In 2014, Bell ran for 860 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Lions (0-4) are still seeking their first win of the season.
