Bell, 24, will pose a unique challenge to the Kansas City Chiefs in Sunday's divisional playoff game. He arrived this season after a winding road. In 12 games, Bell rushed for 1,268 yards and also caught 75 passes for 616 yards, occasionally lining up as a wide receiver. College recruiters overlooked him in high school, and suspensions and a devastating knee injury last year delayed his ascent in the NFL. He found a way through. From a long enough lens, Bell's path can be seen as lesson in the value of patience.
