Much was made about Jets running back Le'Veon Bell missing last Sunday's game against Miami due to the flu, but Bell was able to turn in one of his better performances of the season on Thursday night, albeit in a 42-21 loss to the Ravens.
Bell carried the ball 21 times for 87 yards, his highest rushing total of the season, despite a short week of practice and coming off his illness.
"The guys upfront did a great job of moving guys off the ball and giving me some lanes. Coach gave me some opportunities today, so it was overall a good feeling for me coming out of the game healthy," Bell said afterwards.
"I felt good. Breathing felt fine. Coaches did a good job of still getting me out of the game every now and then. I'd never pull myself out, but personnel things and changes, getting me out of the game and getting me a breather, kind of protecting me from myself, so you've got to give credit to Coach (Adam Gase), he did a good job today."
