Pre-Game Notes: Bell Angered by Raiders

  • Tatum Bell isn't liking the fact that the Raiders have a drill named for him.
    The Oakland Raiders took a swipe at the Lions' running back this week by naming a fumble-recovery drill after him. Last year, while playing with Oakland's AFC West rival, Denver, Bell had a career-worst five fumbles -- all of which he lost.

    News of the dubious honor didn't sit well with Bell on Friday.

    "I'm a little ticked off," he said. "Maybe it's motivating (for) them. I don't know why. I ain't never had a fumble against them, so I don't know why they feel it's a problem. Oh, well. I'm going to look forward to playing them.

    As long as he doesn't cough it up today things will be all good.

  • Kevin Jones isn't putting a date on his return from his foot injury.

  • I wrote a Lions preview for, so make sure to check it out some time.
