Accidents Happen--Bell's Injury


Has Bell or anyone connected with the team specifically said how or when Bell injured his foot? I ask because immediately after the second play (Bell off left-guard), Emmanuel Sanders appears to have lost his balance in the unfolding scrum and stepped hard on Bell's right foot with most of his weight. If that didn't cause the injury, it certainly didn't make the foot happy about being in the NFL. The point is that some have wondered whether Bell is injury-prone or fragile. BS! Take a look at that replay (and the ensuing chaos as the players untangled). If that's where Bell injured his foot, how could he have avoided it? Nor was the accident Sanders' fault as he was pushed while off balance after making a block.

If Bell was injured on this play (and I can't see how he couldn't be), what about his toughness for staying in until the end of the drive...because that had to hurt like h$%l!!! I'd say he's a tough young man playing a tough man's sport and s^#t happens. I wish him the best, a speedy recovery, and a successful career!
