The days of Shakir Bell wearing an ISU football jersey are over. The question is, for what reason. Bell twitted on Tuesday afternoon that he was dismissed from the team, but Head Coach Mike Sanford said that Bell’s foot injury has made him unavailable for the rest of the season.
Bell re-aggravated his injury this past Saturday at Illinois St. An injury he originally suffered at Tenn. Tech back in late September.
The Indianapolis natives was named the Missouri Valley Football Conference Player of the Year in 2011 and currently holds the ISU and MVFC single game rushing record with 349 yards vs. Drake in Sept of 2012. Bell is 2nd all time in rushing yards and TD’s at ISU.
