Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Lions | Joique Bell limited

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. Bell is still dealing with pain and felt a rib "pop" in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. X-rays on his ribs came back negative. Bell wanted to test his ribs Wednesday and will try using a chest protector in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and will likely wear it in Week 7 if he plays. If he doesn't play, RB Mikel Leshoure will likely be active and serve as the backup to RB Reggie Bush.

Fantasy Tip: Lower your expectations a bit if Bell plays through the pain. He remains more intriguing in point-per-reception affairs and as a handcuff to oft-injured Bush.
