Lions running back Joique Bell ruled out for Seattle game

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) Detroit running back Joique Bell has been ruled out of the Lions' game Monday night at Seattle because of an ankle injury.

Bell managed only 6 yards on 10 carries last weekend in a home loss to Denver, and rookie Ameer Abdullah has looked like more of a threat with the ball all season.

The Lions also ruled out tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), and listed linebacker DeAndre Levy (hip) as doubtful.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah (groin) and guard Larry Warford (ankle) are questionable.
