    New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell is sitting out practice with ankle and knee soreness, but the team is optimistic he will be able to play Sunday against the Giants.

    Coach Adam Gase said Wednesday that an MRI a day earlier revealed no structural damage.

    Bell was hurt late during New York's 26-18 loss at Miami on Sunday. The star running back never left the game and Gase didn't know Bell's knee or ankle were bothering him until Monday when he missed a meeting to have tests.

    Gase says Bell was pressing to practice Wednesday, but the coaches and training staff discouraged that. Bell was inside the Jets' facility working with trainers while his teammates practiced outside.

    Bell is off to a sluggish start in his first season with the Jets. He has 415 yards on 125 carries, a 3.3 average that ranks as the lowest of his career. Bell ranks second on the team with 40 receptions.
