MCL sprain for Mike Bell

The Saints are giddy after a 48-22 pasting of the Eagles in Philly.

But their euphoria will be tempered by news that their newfound workhorse tailback, Mike Bell, is believed to have an MCL sprain, per Adam Caplan of

Caplan says an MRI is coming tomorrow.

Bell rushed for 86 yards and a touchdown against the Eagles.  Last week, he rushed for 143 yards against the Lions.

Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush will be expected to carry the load if Bell misses any time.  Depending on the grade of the injury, Bell could be back by next weekend.

    Mike Bell has always been good running back…..was sad to see it when my Broncos let him go a few years ago.
    I hope he gets well soon and continues his success in New Orleans.
