News: Bell recently underwent what the Detroit Free Press describes as minor surgeries to clean up his knee and Achilles tendon.
Impact: On the plus side, Bell, who led the Lions with 860 rushing yards (on 223 carries) in 15 games this past season, while scoring eight total TDs, is expected to return in time for the Lions' organized offseason workouts. Health permitting, he's on track to remain to team's lead back as the 2015 campaign approaches.

News: Bell underwent surgery Thursday, the Detroit Free Press reports.
Impact: The nature of Bell's surgery is unknown at this time, but he tweeted out a photo of himself in a hospital gown, confirming he underwent a procedure. It is likely something minor, and shouldn't cost him time in 2015. We'll let you know if that assessment changes.
