No Damage it Appears on Mike Bell’s Sprained Knee

Mike Bell has played well in his two weeks of extended play for the Saints, but yesterday did suffer an injury in which the team held their breath on. There’s good news on the injury today:

New Orleans Saints running back Mike Bell, who sprained his right knee in the fourth quarter Sunday against Philadelphia, said Monday that an MRI showed no structural damage. The injury is a sprained medial collatoral ligament, Coach Sean Payton said. Bell said he has full range of motion and hopes to play Sunday against Buffalo, but the decision is up to the team. “The news on Bell’s knee was positive,” Payton said. “I really don’t want to put a time frame on it. I really won’t know that until Wednesday, but it’s a lot less severe than we anticipated. I don’t what that does for his status this week, but it’s only Monday right now. Again, the doctors feel pretty good about the nature of that injury.”
