Le'Veon Bell: We can't expect Sam Darnold to be Superman

Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is excited. Sam Darnold is set to start at quarterback for the first time since the first game of the regular season and Bell said on Wednesday that no one is more excited than him about that development. Anyone who has seen the Jets offense rely almost entirely on Bell

Le'Veon Bell has no issues with heavy workload

Before the start of the regular season, running back Le'Veon Bell told the Jets "don't hold back" when it comes to giving him the ball. Whether because of their original plans or because of Sam Darnold‘s absence in their last two games, the Jets have heeded that call. Bell has 76 touches through the team's

Adam Gase on Le'Veon Bell suggesting Jets were out-coached: "We didn't play well enough. We didn't execute well enough...We didn't do a good enough job as a group. We had way too many mental errors. We had bad play calls. We had bad scheme. Our game plan wasn't good enough."

Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) getting MRI Thursday

Coach Adam Gase told reporters that Le'Veon Bell (shoulder) won't practice Thursday and will get an MRI.

The Jets are falling apart at the seams, as Sam Darnold (mono) has been ruled out for Week 2 and it appears that could be in Bell's potential range of outcomes as well. At the very least, it seems unlikely that Bell will play 100% of the Jets' offensive snaps Monday night against the Browns like he did in Week 1. Ty Montgomery is Bell's handcuff and would instantly be elevated into the RB2 conversation if Bell ultimately misses action.

Le'Veon Bell ready to run in Jets debut: 'Don't hold back'

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Le'Veon Bell has waited long enough. The star running back will make his debut for the New York Jets on Sunday in the season opener against the Buffalo Bills. And, he's looking to pick up right where he left off 20 months ago. "I can't ...

Jets | Gang Green to bolster backfield?

The New York Jets are 'actively looking' for running backs on the trade market to pair with RB Le'Veon Bell and RB Ty Montgomery, according to league sources.

ESPN's Rich Cimini suggested Ty Mongomery could "share the load"

ESPN's Rich Cimini suggested Ty Mongomery could "share the load" with Le'Veon Bell early in the season.

Bell will surely have some rust to shake off after being kept under wraps during the preseason and not playing at all in 2018. With that in mind, it's fair to expect a reduced workload for Bell, at least while he dusts off the cobwebs early on. "It'll take time. I don't think it will be Game 1," said Todd Haley, Bell's former OC in Pittsburgh. "I think you have to set the bar a little lower to start." We've been through this before with Bell, who averaged a meager 3.46 yards per carry in the first three games of 2017 after holding out all of training camp. The Jets certainly aren't paying Bell to be a committee back, but don't be surprised if he's eased in coming off a nearly 20-month absence.

Le'Veon Bell: Sam Darnold reminds me of myself

One wouldn't think to compare Jets teammates Le'Veon Bell and Sam Darnold to one another. Darnold's a quarterback and Bell is a running back, which means they have very different skill sets and responsibilities on the football field. As Bell has gotten to know Darnold since joining the Jets, however, he's realized that there are

Gase on Le'Veon Bell: "I can't wait to see what he does on a Sunday

Gase on Le'Veon Bell: "I can't wait to see what he does on a Sunday. With him practicing, that's fun enough. You can tell the guy is a special, special player. To see him on a Sunday is gonna be fun." No preseason for Bell. #Jets

Jets | Le'Veon Bell could sit out preseason

New York Jets RB Le'Veon Bell hasn't played in the team's first two preseason games, and head coach Adam Gase is noncommital about Bell playing in the third. 'We'll kind of see how next week goes,' Gase said Friday, Aug. 16. 'He's played a lot of football. And I like where he's at right now. I love how he's working. If I feel like there's a need to play him next week, we will. If he has a good week of practice and it's not worth it for us to get him out there, then we won't.' If Bell doesn't play in Week 3 of the preseason, then there's little chance of him playing in Week 4 when starters typically rest.

Le'Veon Bell may not play in the preseason

He didn't play at all in 2018. In 2017, he showed up after the preseason ended. This year, in his first season with the Jets, running back Le'Veon Bell may make zero preseason appearances. He hasn't played yet, with two of four games in the can. Based on Friday's comments from Jets coach Adam Gase,

Jets | Ty Montgomery set to play hybrid role

New York Jets RB Ty Montgomery told the New York Daily News' Manish Mehta that he feels like 'a true hybrid in this offense (under head coach Adam Gase).''It was a surprising deal when he came in here. I was surprised he wasn't signed yet. The fact that we had a shot at him coming here and when we got him signed, the wheels started turning on offense as far as all right, what are we going to do? How are we going to use these guys? What's it going to look like? So, we're experimenting with all that stuff. His versatility and his flexibility and his knowledge ... and he's extremely smart. So, we put a lot on his plate and he's able to play a lot of different roles for us,' Gase said. Footballguys View: Montgomery is a versatile player as he can line up in the slot as a wide receiver but he can also take handoffs as a running back. The Jets have Le'Veon Bell to be their primary running back, and Bell is a fine receiver out of the backfield too. Montgomery may not get many snaps other than when Bell needs a breather. We'll be interested to see how they use him in the preseason.
