Lions RB Joique Bell, who was excused from practice for personal reasons.

Coach Jim Caldwell said he hasn't made any determinations about which players will sit out Saturday's preseason opener against the Cleveland Browns, though noted Bell is not among those who are battling injury.

Bell missed all of OTAs and minicamp while rehabbing a knee injury, but told MLive.com after practice Thursday that he was feeling strong and healthy.

That's an indication he could be available against Cleveland, despite his absence Friday.
