The New York Jets (4-8) will be without Le'Veon Bell for Week 14.

The Jets announced Saturday that their star running back has been downgraded from questionable to out with an undisclosed illness, and will not play in the team's home matchup against the Miami Dolphins (3-9).

Questions surrounding Bell's status began Thursday when he missed practice. On Friday, the illness forced Bell to be sent home early, resulting in a second straight missed practice.

Running back Bilal Powell is expected to start in Bell's place while RB Ty Montgomery will step in as the second option.
