Day 1 goes well for Bell

OT Demetrius Bell was back practicing for the first time since Week 4 and by his account fared well his first day back in pads.

“It went pretty good,” Bell told “It’s been too long. What was it? Six weeks? Way too long.”

Bell took reps at both left and right tackle as he tries to shake the rust off from a month and a half absence from the practice and game settings.

“Just trying to get an extra rep in here and there wherever I can,” he said.

Head coach Chan Gailey said he would consider getting Bell back in the starting lineup this week, but after such a long layoff indicated that he’d be leaning in favor of Hairston who has practiced fully each of the past two weeks to man left tackle.
