AFC East Notes: Bills, Jets, Patriots



The Jets have been leaning on RB Le’Veon Bell while QB Sam Darnold is out of the lineup. However, Bell says he has no issues with the large workload. 

“Nope,” Bell said, via “No, I play football. I just sat out a whole year. It’s like I kind of reset. All of the touches I didn’t get last year, you can double it up this year. It’s fine.

Bell is currently on pace for over 400 touches for the season.
