Le'Veon Bell's status for Sunday against the Miami Dolphins has officially been downgraded to out by the team.
Bell, who was initially listed as questionable on Friday, missed two days of practice with an illness, and now will not suit up against Miami.
On Friday, Gase would not specify the kind of illness Bell is dealing with, and would only say that everyone recovers at a different pace.
"I feel like each guy it's been something different," Gase said about Bell on Thursday. "It hasn't been the same thing, it hasn't been like the flu or anything."
Jamal Adams, who is dealing with an ankle injury and has been in a walking boot, also remained out on Friday. While Gase was not prepared to rule Adams out, it seems highly unlikely that he'll play against the Dolphins.
Adams suffered the injury during Sunday's 22-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, and did not practice on Wednesday, either.
"Yeah, it's tough," Adams said. "Obviously, it's things that you can't control in this game, it's things you can't control in this life. But you've just got to control what you can control, at the end of the day. But like I said, man, we'll be fine. Just got to continue to get better, continue to stay healthy and go from there."
Adams said he played through the pain on Sunday after suffering the injury on the first drive of the game, but his status is still up in the air for Week 14's matchup with the Dolphins.
