The Ravens signed Bell to their practice squad in September, part of a flurry of moves after JK Dobbins, Gus Edwards and Justice Hill all suffered season-ending injuries.

Through nine games, veterans Latavius Murray and Devonta Freeman have received the lion’s share of the carries, rushing for just over 200 yards each.
