MAR 06, 2014 9:22p ET
Bell tore the medial collateral in his knee and is expected to be unable to return to full-speed workouts until May.
A sophomore from Rossville, Ga., Bell had 19 tackles a year ago, including one for minus yardage. He also had an interception.
He was expected to start for the Buckeyes, who graduated their three top safeties from a year ago, Christian Bryant, C.J. Barnett and Corey Brown.
