After not practicing at all this week, running back Joique Bell has been ruled out against the Seahawks for week 4. Bell hasn’t ran the same since returning from missing training camp and hopefully a week of rest will help him get back to form.

The stage is now set for Detroit to lean on it’s young trio of running backs if they want to get the ground game going. Ameer Abdullah, Zach Zenner and Theo Riddick should all see increased workloads on Monday Night Football. Personally, I would like to see two of them on the field at the same time, with Abdullah or Riddick playing out of the slot.

Regardless of how it’s done, if the Lions want to compete against the Seahawks at home, they’ll have to control the ground game.
