"He had a couple pins put in his finger. The doctors say he can not workout for four or five days because they are afraid of infection in that finger. After four or five days, he can go back to a normal workout. It all depends on how he can handle the pain, and we'll see what he can do."
Bell's potential absence will hamper his chances at the starting job. He has fallen to no.4 on the depth chart behind veteran running back Garrison Hearst and second-year RB Ahmaad Galloway.
Meanwhile, starting quarterback Jake Plummer is impressed with what he sees from second-year running back Quentin Griffin who is at top of the depth chart.
"Quentin is a spark plug back there. He can run around and make guys miss. The fun part is when we are actually live and guys are really trying to tackle him. We move the ball and he shakes a guy down and they get a hand on him. We blow the whistle just to protect him and the other guys. But that is where he excels by making guys miss. He makes the first guy miss, second guy miss and gets yard after that, so it's fun watching him run the ball because you never know what's going to happen."
