It's only right that the Jets are treating prized free-agent acquisition Le'Veon Bell with kid gloves in the preseason.

After missing all of the 2018 season due to a contract dispute with the Steelers, it's been over a year and a half since Bell has played in an National Football League game of any sort, be it preseason, regular season, or postseason.

"I was about 99 percent sure heading into the preseason", Gase said of the decision.

After sitting out all of last season due to a contractual dispute with the Steelers, Bell will not take the field for game action with his new team before NY wraps up its preseason schedule. Gase and the Jets don't want to take any unnecessary risks with Bell. It's on me. I'm the one that has to make that call and get him out there, but we didn't. "We're going to do the same thing this week". It will mark the first time Bell will play in a game since the Steelers' playoff loss to Jacksonville on January 14, 2018 - a span of almost 20 months.

"So, I feel confident he'll be ready to go [in] Week 1".

Threat Increases For Scattered Thunderstorms As Heat, Humidity Rise
The weekend looks spectacular, with partly to mostly sunny skies, low humidity and highs only in the upper 70s and low 80s. The high temperature on Monday, Aug. 19 could hit or surpass the 90-degree mark on a mostly sunny day.

"Le'Veon will not play this week", Gase said. "That probably made it 100".

Avery Williamson tore an anterior cruciate ligament on his 30th defensive snap Thursday night.

An MRI on Friday revealed the severity of the injury, and Williamson was placed on injured reserve Saturday. The staff is not inclined to put their bell-cow running back in a compromising position by playing him in a meaningless game.

When the Jets take on the Saints in Week 3 of the preseason, Bell will be out on the field warming up with his teammates before the game and spending the duration of the action cheering them on. Williamson remained in the game with the second-team defense because backup Neville Hewitt is also playing a new spot, and Hewitt would benefit from the veteran's presence on the field. I told him I wanted to increase the reps last week. "I talked to him".
