New York Jets running back Le'Veon Bell, who opened training camp by predicting a career year, was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with a pulled hamstring, Rich Cimini of ESPN New York reports.

On Tuesday, the Jets signed former Miami Dolphins running back Kalen Ballage. The Jets tried to acquire him in a trade last month, but the deal was voided when he failed a physical because of a hamstring injury. He became a free agent.

Under the new IR rules, Bell must miss at least three games, meaning he will be eligible to play in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals.

The move comes one day after coach Adam Gase indicated that Bell "could be looking at a couple of weeks" on the sideline. He was hurt in Sunday's loss to the Buffalo Bills.

This is a tough blow for Bell, who dropped significant weight in the offseason and reported at 210 pounds -- his lightest weight since high school, he said. Coming off his worst statistical season, he vowed to rebound in 2020.
