Jacksonville Dolphins quarterback Kade Bell will likely miss the rest of the season with a third-degree tear of his MCL. Bell, the son of Dolphins coach Kerwin Bell, suffered the injury early in Saturday's 24-7 loss against San Diego, snapping what was the longest home winning streak among FCS schools at the time.
The MRI revealed that Bell did not suffer any cartilage damage because of the tear. However, the tear will be enough to keep Bell out for at least four weeks. The Dolphins are idle this week but have three games remaining on the season.
Currently, the Dolphins are 6-2 overall with a 4-1 record in the Pioneer League, a half game behind the Butler Bulldogs and the Drake Bulldogs. The Dolphins will play Butler in their next game on Nov. 4 and will end their season against Drake.
The Dolphins will likely turn to sophomore Trevius Folston or freshman Steven Hughes to replace Bell at quarterback.
