The New York Jets had a bit of a scare when Le’Veon Bell suffered a shoulder injury that required an MRI, but there’s nothing but good news on that front now.
Head coach Adam Gase told reporters Friday that Bell is good to go for Week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. He also said that Bell was “over-aggressive” during Wednesday’s practice, which was what necessitated the MRI.
Bell did score a sweet touchdown in his first game back in over a year, but overall his first game as a member of the Jets was underwhelming. In total, he had 92 yards on 18 touches, including 60 yards rushing on 17 carries (3.5 yards per carry).
If the Jets are going to beat Cleveland Monday night, then Bell will need to step up in a big way, as Sam Darnold is out with mononucleosis and could be out for a couple more weeks afterward.
