  • Jacob Bell may be done for the rest of the season

    Jacob Bell has a torn hamstring muscle
    Posted by Steve Korte

    Left guard Jacob Bell could be lost for the rest of the 2009 season due to a torn hamstring muscle.

    Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said the team still is weighing whether to place Bell on injured reserve.

    “They call it a ‘bicep tear’ of the hamstring,’’ Spagnuolo said. “It will not require surgery, but we may have to make a decision there on how long that is going to be.’’

    Either Mark Setterstrom or John Greco will take Bell’s spot in the starting lineup.

    Bell was injured on a 45-yard interception return for a touchdown by Vincent Fuller in the fourth quarter of the Rams' 47-7 loss to the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.

    Major question is will he be back next year?

    Was so excited when this guy signed with us, but doesn't seem like much has panned out.

            According to what the coaches are saying, he has been one of the best performers on the O-line this year. He's certainly picked it up since his slow start last year.
            The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                This has been a very tough year on the injury front indeed, especially on the Rams frontline.
                Jason Smith has had a rough 1st year dealing with concussions, Ritchie Incognito has had injury issues missing a significant amount time and has had attitude issues on the field. (2 personal fouls Sunday for Cogs!)
                Jason Brown was knocked out briefly from the lineup, earlier this season, but bounced back quickly.
                Now Bell is down.
                There wasn't enough time this year for the Rams starting offensive line to gel together.
                The only major constant was Alex Barron. Its a wonder that Steven Jackson has rushed over 1,000 yards.

                    This isn't good at all. I don't think Jacob Bell has played nearly as bad as people say he has. And to add onto this, we just released Incognito who was decent when he wasn't busy head-butting people. I hope Steven Jackson can adjust to this new line and hopefully they can open up some holes for him to run through.

                      What was up with Jacob Bell
                      by RAMarkable
                      As I was watching the Rams execution...er..game yesterday I noticed that Bell was out of the lineup and Wragge was playing in his place.

                      Anybody know what was going on with Mr. Bell?

                      (Or is it more accurate to ask if anybody really cares at this point....)

                      Jacob Bell wasn't kidding
                      by jbell15
                      When he said he was going to beef up this off-season.
                      He added 15-20 lbs and says he wants to get near 300.
                      Check out the article on the rams website.
                      I'm stoked to hear about his progress.

                      With Alan Faneca likely headed to the Jets, the Rams have turned their efforts toward free agent G Jacob Bell.

                      They're currently trying to set up a visit. Faneca will announce where he's signing by Saturday at 6PM ET. Bell is undersized, but only 26 and was valued by the Titans. They tried to re-sign him before he hit the market.

                      I'm sorry...but Bell>Faneca for us right now. I hope we get it.

                      BELL STAYS PUT

                      A league source tells us that Dolphins safety Yeremiah Bell has opted to stick around.

                      Per the source, Bell has agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million contract. The move also is being reported by Adam Schefter of NFL Network.

                      Bell started the 2007 regular-season opener, but suffered a ruptured Achilles' tendon and missed the rest of the year.

                      He'll get a chance now to prove that he is healthy, and he'll re-enter the free-agent market in 2008. (Unless, of course, he plays so well that the team opts to restrict him with the franchise tag.)

                      gotcha , haha you thought i meant jacob?

                      Upon making his return to the football field for the first time since suffering a serious concussion on Aug. 14 against the Jets, Rams guard Jacob Bell wanted to waste no time in checking to see where his head was at – literally and figuratively.

                      So it was that Bell stepped on the practice field at the Russell Training Center on Sunday and immediately called upon some of his lesser tenured teammates to knock the rust off quickly.

                      “I started out early popping the rookies in individual drills to get my helmet loose and see if the marbles are still loose up there,” Bell said. “It felt pretty good.”

                      Bell completed the practice at his usual left guard spot with the first team with no issues and felt fine during the practice as well as after.

                      That’s a long way from how the past couple of weeks have been, though.

                      The play seemed simple enough, as the Rams called for a power run to the right on the first play of the game in which Bell’s responsibility is to pull out to the right and essentially lead block for the running back.

                      Pulling is something Bell has done countless times in his career and he estimates he’s done it at least 200 times in games in his five years in the NFL. For as long as he can remember, Bell has always done it the same way, though, with his head down.

                      Despite having many coaches tell him to keep his head up when he pulls, Bell says he’s always been better pulling because he can deliver more of a blow with his head down.

                      “What happens when you pull around is if you put your head down, you make yourself vulnerable to any kind of collision like that,” Bell said. “They’ve been telling me since I was a rookie don’t put your head down when you pull. I have had success with it in the past though just popping people.”

                      This time, with his head down, Bell was on the receiving end of a vicious helmet to helmet collision with Jets linebacker Bart Scott.

                      Two plays later, Bell and the offense came off the field and Bell unknowingly had the first serious concussion of his career.

                      “When you do have a concussion, you don’t know you have a concussion,” Bell said. “You feel normal. Like I was talking to everybody on the sidelines but the same questions I am asking them, I am going back five minutes later and asking the same question like Dory from Finding Nemo. You feel normal but on the outside looking in you are messed up.”

                      Bell was diagnosed with the concussion almost immediately and taken out of that game soon after the hit.

                      And while Bell felt OK soon after the hit, it was what he experienced over the next few days that truly made him realize the severity of the injury.

                      Bell struggled to remember even little...
