FOXBOROUGH, MASSACHUSETTS - SEPTEMBER 22: Le'Veon Bell #26 of the New York Jets warms up before the game against the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium on September 22, 2019 in Foxborough, Massachusetts.

Le’Veon Bell In Hot Water After Being Caught Bowling With Flu

Although the optics are bad in the Le’Veon Bell situation, New York Jets head coach Adam Gase said that Bell did not violate any team rules and won’t be disciplined. “What am I gonna discipline him for? I can’t tell him you have to stay in your house.”

Bell, who was ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins due to illness, was seen bowling on Saturday night. He had been battling the flu throughout the week and missed two practices. “That wasn’t his fault that we said he’s still contagious. I mean, that’s what the doctors told him. I’d rather him not be [bowling]. I’d rather him be at home, getting better. But that will be a conversation we have,” Gase continued.

Gase added, “Oh, he wanted to play, but they said he was still contagious. They didn’t want him around all the other guys because they thought it would spread through the team.”

The 27-year old running back is in his first season of the four-year, $52 million contract he signed with the Jets. He has had a tough year in New York, rushing for just 589 yards with three touchdowns. He has added 55 receptions for 403 yards and one touchdown.

The Jets had a tough start to the season, but with a stunning win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 12, it seemed their season had turned around. With three tough games approaching against the Baltimore Ravens (11-2), the Pittsburgh Steelers (8-5) and the Buffalo Bills (9-4), the Jets will look to hold their own as they face a 5-8 record.

Bell is expected to play to play on Thursday night as the Jets take on the Ravens in Baltimore.
