[Kansas City.com] Kendrell Bell’s Chiefs debut probably will come next weekend against the Seahawks.
Coach Dick Vermeil said Thursday that Bell, a hard-hitting linebacker acquired from Pittsburgh in the offseason, is getting closer to contact but won’t see action in Saturday’s preseason game against Arizona.
“Next week at this time, Kendrell should be getting ready to play a few snaps,” Vermeil said as the Chiefs wrapped up their final run of two-a-days in River Falls.
Bell, who missed much of last season with a groin injury, had shoulder problems during the Chiefs’ offseason workouts. Though Bell has been practicing in camp, Vermeil has held him out from contact as a precautionary measure.
