  BETHLEHEM - It was an interesting morning at Lehigh, highlighted by Quintin Mikell, Brodrick Bunkley and Omar Gaither stopping Mike Bell on a live fourth-and-one running attempt. Bell didn't get any blocking on the fourth-down attempt. Gaither was playing first-team middle linebacker because Stewart Bradley is suffering from mild hamstring spasms, the team said. In the afternoon session, Bell suffered a hamstring injury. "There's only so many things you can do. We know there was going to be a run; the line was leaning so heavily.

MIKE BELL looked really good playing against the Eagles for the eventual Super Bowl champion Saints a little over a year ago, gaining 86 yards on 17 carries, 5.1 yards per carry. But the Bell who played for the Birds this season never resembled that guy, because of rust or a different blocking scheme or some other something no one ever figured out. Yesterday, after stumbling to 28 yards on 16 carries, Bell was traded to Cleveland for Jerome Harrison, a smaller running back Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said might be a better fit for the team's West Coast offense.

When the Eagles signed Mike Bell in March, they thought they were getting Correll Buckhalter. That's their story and they're sticking to it. "We kind of pictured him in a Correll Buckhalter type of role," general manager Howie Roseman said Wednesday after shipping Bell to the Cleveland Browns for running back Jerome Harrison. "A guy you can use in the same backfield with LeSean [McCoy]. A guy who could block, who could catch a little, who could run. " Well, zero out of four ain't bad. Bell rarely teamed in the same backfield with McCoy during his short stay in Philly.

Directed by Christopher Bell. With Chris Bell, Mike Bell, Mark Bell and Rosemary Bell. Distributed by Magnolia Picture. 1 hour, 46 mins. PG-13 (vulgarity, adult content, violent images, drug content). Playing at: Ritz Five, Showcase at the Ritz/NJ. The performance-enhancing quality behind this muscular movie is director Chris Bell's willingness to go far beyond the call of duty. It might have worked perfectly well as a family story - both of Bell's brothers are body builders who've wrestled with steroids - but Bell sees the issue of drugs and sports as a metaphor for the overachieving ethos of Americans at large (no kidding)

The New Orleans Saints had until 11:59 last night to match the Eagles' offer for restricted free agent Mike Bell, but league sources said they would not do so. The running back, who signed the offer sheet last week, will receive a one-year, $1.7 million contract, with $500,000 guaranteed. "We're cautiously optimistic," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said yesterday. "We're talking to the people from the Saints. It seems like the direction they were going in was to not match.

The clock is still ticking for the Saints, who have until 11:59 p.m. Tuesday to match the Eagles' offer for running back Mike Bell. A restricted free agent, Bell signed?an Eagles' offer sheet on Tuesday that would pay him $1.7 million, with $500,000 guaranteed, over one year. New Orleans had seven days to match, but all signs seem to be pointing to it not doing so. The Times-Picayune reported yesterday that there was just an "outside chance" that the Saints would match. They tendered Bell at the lowest level - $1.176 million - and would receive no draft-pick compensation were they not to match the offer.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - It was an unusual moment in Eagles' training camp: Asante Samuel had gone quiet. The cornerback who talks smack to wide receivers, their coaches, quarterbacks, running backs, and anyone else who happens to catch his eye, didn't have much to say during special-teams practice. Bobby April, the special-teams coordinator, wondered what had happened. "Is he still on the team?" April asked loud enough for everyone to hear. "I ain't heard him, so I thought he quit.

If LeSean McCoy can gut out nearly an entire half of football playing with a cracked rib - as he did last week - the presumption goes that the Eagles running back would be able to return to the field Sunday night against the San Francisco 49ers. But what if he can't? What if the rib remains painful even with additional padding? Mike Bell, come on down. The 6-foot, 225-pound Bell enjoyed a productive season in 2009 for the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. He rushed for 654 yards and scored five touchdowns on 172 carries.

Coach Jim McCaffrey had been a little unsure of how united his Philadelphia Region baseball team would be entering the 13th annual Keystone State Games. McCaffrey found out yesterday, after his Philadelphia team outlasted Capital Region, 5-4, in the junior division at Pennbrook Field on the opening day of the Games. "This is an all-star team and it's nice to get off to a start like this," said McCaffrey, who coaches at Cardinal Dougherty. "We've been practicing together for two months, and a tight win like this bonds us. " Mike Bell, a 6-foot-2, 180-pounder who will be a sophomore at Archbishop Ryan next month, pitched a complete-game victory.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Eagles running back Mike Bell , who only recently returned from a hamstring injury, had to be carted off the field again Sunday at Lehigh University, this time with a right calf strain. Bell appeared despondent when he emerged from the locker room after the morning practice, moving with a pronounced limp and talking politely to reporters but staring into the distance in obvious frustration. He has struggled with injuries throughout his career. "You put so much into it and something happens that you can't control, you kind of lose it," Bell said.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Mike Bell saw his past and future flash before his eyes. When the Eagles running back pulled a hamstring last week, he was visibly upset, he said, because it felt like déjà vu all over again and again. Bell, signed in the off-season as a restricted free agent after two seasons in New Orleans, said it was the third straight training camp in which he pulled a hamstring. "I was like, 'Not again. Not again,' " Bell said Tuesday. "Regardless of what you say, they're injuries and it's a business and [coaches]

BETHLEHEM - Running back Mike Bell thought he was in the best shape of his career, but 3 days into full-squad Eagles practices, Bell caught a pass running across the field, then suddenly let go of the ball, grabbed his left hamstring and hit the ground, yelling. "I put in so much hard work this summer, and I felt so good, I felt like I was having a good camp. When that happened, I just saw everything that happened my whole career just flash before my eyes," Bell said yesterday. "I was like, 'not again.

BETHLEHEM - Cornelius Ingram last played in a football game 31 months-and-change ago. Ingram caught one Tim Tebow pass, for 17 yards, as his Florida Gators were upset by Michigan, 41-35, on Jan. 1, 2008, in the Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla. So Ingram is a tad antsy for Friday's preseason opener against Jacksonville at Lincoln Financial Field. Maybe more than a tad. "I'm very excited," Ingram said yesterday. "It's been a long time. A long time. Regardless of going through training camp again, in full pads, you're doing a lot of stuff - it's still different from a game.
