Browns ILB Beau Bell has been "slow afoot and almost invisible" in training camp.

We're pretty sure Bell has practice squad eligibility left, so the Browns may stash him there if he's cut. He was ex-GM Phil Savage's top draft pick in 2008.

Browns LB Beau Bell will undergo surgery on his right knee for tendinitis and swelling. He was placed on injured reserve, ending his season.

Bell, a fourth-rounder, was the Browns highest draft pick this season, but only was used as a bit player on special teams after an August knee scope. The injuries were to separate knees, but two knee surgeries in a rookie year don't bode well for his future.

Browns rookie ILB Beau Bell will miss four-to-six weeks after having his knee scoped on Thursday.

His status for Week 1 is in doubt. Bell, Cleveland's top pick in April (they traded away their first- through third-round picks), had ankle and groin issues in college but no knee problems. Leon Williams will get more snaps now, and Bell's chances for big playing time early just went down.

Browns signed fourth-round LB Beau Bell, fourth-round TE Martin Rucker, sixth-round DT Ahytba Rubin, sixth-round WR Paul Hubbard, and seventh-round LB Alex Hall.

It's easier to get all of your picks signed when half of them were traded away. Bell is expected to begin pushing ILB Andra Davis by mid-season while Rucker is more of a deep dynasty league prospect at tight end.

The Browns expect rookie Beau Bell to begin pushing inside linebacker Andra Davis for playing time by mid-season.

If Bell is in the mix for playing time with Davis, he'd also be a threat to Leon Williams' action. Bell, who forced five fumbles and intercepted four passes as a senior, was a fourth-round pick. He'll play special teams initially.

Browns traded their fourth- and fifth-round picks to select LB Beau Bell with the No. 104 pick in the NFL Draft.

He's a 3-4 inside linebacker who can hit. Bell will have more attention on him than most fourth-round picks because he's Cleveland's first pick of the draft.

The Browns reportedly "debated long and hard" this week about UNLV inside linebacker Beau Bell.

Bell suffered a knee injury during pre-draft workouts and ran slow at his Pro Day, which could be enough to get him to the fourth round. The Browns don't have draft picks in the top three rounds due to trades this year and last.

UNLV LB Beau Bell suffered a bruised and sprained knee during Senior Bowl practice Tuesday.

The injury happened towards the end of Tuesday's practice. He'll rehab for the next three to four weeks and expects to be fine by February's Combine.

Shawn Zobel reports for Rotoworld that UNLV LB Beau Bell was hurt at Senior Bowl practices Tuesday.

After talking to doctors on the sideline, Bell was taken away. Bell is a prospective first day pick who would fit nicely in a 3-4 defense.
