The battle for the Detroit Lions' No. 2 tailback job is heating up, but Joique Bell isn't sweating it.
Maybe because he's in control.
Bell, competing with Mikel Leshoure for the gig, is having a terrific preseason.
Bell seemingly has outperformed Leshoure, both in practices and games.
In last week's game against the Patriots, Bell rushed five times for a team-high 52 yards and caught two passes for 49 yards, including a nifty 38-yard second-half catch that featured several broken tackles. Something Leshoure has failed to do, the story points out. If he wins the job, Bell will back up Reggie Bush. Bell isn't getting drafted, but if you own Bush, Bell may be someone to consider in the last round.
