Bell to see more time

Posted by Chris Brown on December 14, 2011 – 9:34 am

Last Sunday Demetrius Bell was rotated into the lineup at left tackle replacing rookie Chris Hairston at times. Although the rookie has started the last three games head coach Chan Gailey saw enough good things from Bell that it’s prompted him to play the veteran more this week.

“That was a pleasant surprise, to be honest with you,” said Gailey. “Demetrius played a lot better than maybe even I had anticipated. He came in and did a good job and I think that he’ll play more, I know he’ll play more next week, Demetrius will.”

Bell got 20 snaps in relief of Hairston last week, and according to Pro Football Focus allowed just one QB pressure. When asked if Bell could start Sunday against the Dolphins Gailey left the door open. 

“I don’t know, we’ll see,” said Gailey. “Let us see how it goes during the week.”
