Le'Veon Bell Went Bowling After Calling Out Sick, Jets Coach Annoyed

Le'Veon Bell Went Bowling After Calling Out Sick, Jets Coach Annoyed

The running back was sent home Friday and was ruled out of Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium when the Jets beat the Dolphins 22-21 because of the flu, the New York Post reports. That is what was told to the public, but according to the New York Post, the Jets running back was actually spotted bowling at a local New Jersey bowling alley Saturday night until the establishment closed.

The New York Post reports that Bell, who was said to be easy to spot donning orange leather trousers, was at the bowling alley from 10:30 p.m.to close at 1 a.m. Sunday morning. The 27-year-old running back said doctors told him he was allowed to leave his house despite having the flu, so he made a decision to go bowling with his friends and family.

His first season with the Jets has been underwhelming statistically.

"That wasn't his fault that we said he's still contagious", Gase said.

The 47-year-old remains free on a $10-million bail and resides at one of the mansions in Vancouver she co-owns with her husband. Supreme Court during a lunch break from a hearing, in Vancouver, on Thursday Oct. 3, 2019.


Asked if he has been afforded the opportunity to thrive, Bell said, "Honestly, no".

"I'd rather him not be (bowling)", Gase said. It would not be a surprise if Gase is just as annoyed about that as fans are.

Gase spoke to Bell later Tuesday about the situation, and Bell said he could see there being an issue if he had been cleared to play Sunday and still went out Saturday night.

A two-time All-Pro with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Bell has carried the ball 183 times for 589 yards - a career-low 3.2 yards per carry - and three touchdowns. I understand that. That's why I've always been patient.
