Le’Veon Bell getting MRI on shoulder

The good news is that Le'Veon Bell doesn’t have mono.

The bad news is that the Jets running back isn’t 100 percent. At the same press conference that saw head coach Adam Gase announce that quarterback Sam Darnold is out indefinitely because he has mononucleosis, we also learned that Bell is headed for an MRI.

It’s a shoulder injury that’s being checked out for the big-ticket free agent acquisition. Gase said that Bell is experiencing soreness and the team is hopeful that it isn’t anything more than that.

Linebacker C.J. Mosley is not practicing because of a groin injury, first-round pick Quinnen Williams is not practicing because of an ankle injury and wide receiver Quincy Enunwa‘s season is over because of a neck injury, so optimism feels like a tough sell for a team that opened the year by blowing a 16-0 third quarter lead in a 17-16 loss to the Bills.

  1. If the backup QB is going to start, then don’t take chances will bell, sit him a game to recover.

    This Jets team isn’t looking too good.

  2. Shoulder is sore? Well, I’m no doctor, but I am going to guess he is sore because he hasn’t played football in 18 months. This will only be the start of his injuries.

  3. Will this team ever learn to teambuild properly, not spend and rent high priced FAs while doing it and hire the intelligent GM and coach?

    Answer: NO

    As long as Woody Johnson is putting his .02 in from behind that curtain, this is how it will be Jetsie fans.

    No more cheating my team to deflect away from your failures, too. lmao

  4. Can ESPN flex the monday night game? One dumpster fire team against another dumpster fire team…the only hope is a Jets player takes OBJ watch when they tackle him (if he ever gets the ball) and parades it around like a trophy, a good game of keep-away might be better entertainment then the actual game between failed owners.

  5. Well another season and another free pass for New England Patriots. This division needs to be revamped. How can these other 3 teams be so awfully inept, game after game, year after year? I acknowledge the greatness of BB, but could these other teams at least be competitive? Brady might play till he’s 50. He could only play against AFC East and in the playoffs.

  6. Bell injured his shoulder playing video games while he held out, after complaining about Pittsburgh not allowing him to play video games.

  7. One suggestion to revamp AFC east
    NE is more north than Baltimore so what if NE and Baltimore exchange their places, will also make Both divisions equally competitive

  8. Well… I’m a little sore from my 1st game in 600 days. My money is guaranteed… I don’t really feel like practicing and now our QB has mono. Hey guys, I think I need an MRI on my shoulder.

    Yeah, sure. Say it to his face, kiddie

    He also is going to the HOF and has 3 rings.

    So predictable. Middle-aged (in football years) running back finally gets his money and takes contact after nearly 2 years of inactivity. You’re a tad optimistic – I have him out in 4.

    then after we mop up that division bc we play the browns and bengals two times a year as well as pittsburgh (you know how we own pittsburgh already i assume, if you follow football) you all would be crying anyways.

    The daily persecution complex.

    I would sure like to hear your explanation for how Bell getting hurt is Mike Tomlin’s fault.

    So, look to punish a team because of others ineptness? I HATE the Pats, but let’s face it, Miami, the Jets and the Bills JOKES. Perhaps the NFL needs to force clowns like Stephen Ross to sell their team and/or bring in competent people to run the teams? That’s why I chuckle at Pats fans that brag about winning the division like 17 of the last 18 years. It IS a good achievement, but c’mon it’s like saying you are the skinniest person in your Jenny Craig group.

    As a Bills fan, I’m good with that LOL

  17. The only hope for all you New England whiners is that BB retires. You could revamp the conferences all you want and it would not make a difference.

    Lol like you would say half the things you say to players faces lol

  19. Most teams understand that you don’t pay running backs that kind of cash for this reason. Not the Jets. They are in huge trouble now and as usual absolutely no Future!

  20. I called it that by week 3 or 4 he would be on the injury report with some sort of.soft tissue injury. Gotta admit he does make it easy though.
