Lions RB Joique Bell has surgery


Detroit Lions running back Joique Bell posted on Instagram on Thursday night that he had surgery to fix an undisclosed issue.

Bell had a few injuries throughout the course of the season, including suffering an Achilles injury prior to Week 17 against Green Bay. The injury didn't keep Bell from playing against the Packers or in Detroit's playoff game against Dallas.

He also had an ankle injury in November that he played through. Bell did not say what he had surgery on in his Instagram photo.

Surgery was a success, be right back like I left something #Concrete

Bell, who was Detroit's leading rusher in 2014, wasn't the only Detroit player to have surgery scheduled.

Right tackle LaAdrian Waddle was placed on injured reserve after being carted off against Minnesota in Week 15 with an injury to his left knee.

On Wednesday, Waddle tweeted he is finishing his last two classes to graduate from Texas Tech this semester -- and that he's having surgery as well.
