LB Bell sits out Thursday practice



PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Kendrell Bell sat out practice again Thursday because of the left ankle injury that has troubled him for several weeks.
Bell is listed as questionable for Saturday's divisional playoff game at Tennessee, meaning there is a 50-50 chance he will play.
Bell has sprained the ankle four times since training camp, reinjuring it again Sunday during Pittsburgh's come-from-behind 36-33 wild-card victory over Cleveland.
Bell also didn't practice last week, but played after getting a pre-game painkilling injection.
He responded with one of his best games of the season, making eight tackles and playing a key role as the Steelers limited Browns running back William Green to 30 yards on 25 carries.
Steelers cornerback Chad Scott also is listed as questionable, but he practiced this week despite a broken right thumb that sidelined him the last two weeks.
