ALLEN PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) -- Free agent running backs Aaron Dobson and Joique Bell worked out with the Lions on Tuesday, with Dobson expected to sign with the team.
Dobson spent the 2016 preseason with the New England Patriots.
Meanwhile, beat writer Kyle Meinke reports that the Lions may also sign Bell, who left Detroit as a free agent following the 2015 season.
Confirmed Joique Bell had a workout with the Lions today. Heard it went "great," and the Lions could use a body. A deal is possible.

The Lions are looking to fill the void at running back left by Ameer Abdullah, who was injured in Sunday's loss to the Titans.
The belief is #Lions RB Ameer Abdullah suffered a foot sprain on Sunday, source said. X-Rays negative. More tests coming to confirm.
