Joique Bell (Achilles) activated from PUP list
The Detroit Lions have activated starting running back Joique Bell.
Bell, who had been recovering from knee and Achilles injuries, had been on the physically unable to perform list. On Saturday, he had indicated he was close to returning, adding that he and the doctors would play it by ear whether he would be activated this week.
Bell is coming off a year in which he rushed for a career-high 860 yards. He will join a backfield that includes rookies Ameer Abdullah and Zach Zenner along with Theo Riddick and George Winn. Adbullah figures to be a big part of the passing game but Bell should see a lot of the early down work.
