Reggie Bush says knee pain slowed him down on Sunday


Reggie Bush suffered a knee injury in Week Three and then played anyway in Week Four. But he wasn’t playing at full speed.

Bush averaged 3.9 yards a carry Sunday against the Cardinals, his worst average in a game since November of last year, and he told reporters on Wednesday that the reason is he was still feeling the effects of that knee injury.

I was hurting; I’m not going to lie,” Bush said, via the Miami Herald. “I tried to fight through it. I did the best I could.”

Bush said he expects to be better this week against the Bengals.

“I’m not going to make any excuses,” Bush said. “I’ve got to play better. I didn’t play well at all.”

If Bush can’t play better, he may be doing the Dolphins a disservice by toughing it out. If he can’t play well, he shouldn’t play at all.

    Love this new Reggie Bush. Been running great ever since he got to Miami.

    “I’m not gonna make any excuses. I was hurting. I tried to fight through it but I was hurting. No excuses.”

    He still broke a few nice runs, and would have had a better day if not for a nine yard loss on a terrible pitch from Tannehill.

    Having to run against your own defense can be tough…

    Leave Reggie out on Sunday, if he isn’t right. We don’t need him going out for the rest of the season.

    If you goons are going to use quote marks, you have to actually “quote” exactly what he said. /boggle

    I hope Rey Rey knocks the excuses out of him.

    @addict2sports- I’d be careful what you wish for. Look what happened to the jets. ROFL
