Reggie Bush practices on Friday

One of the Lions’ most important offensive players has returned to practice late in the work week.

After missing Wednesday and Thursday with a knee injury, running back Reggie Bush practiced on Friday, Tim Twentyman of reported.

The Lions (1-1) visit winless Washington on Sunday.

On Twitter, Twentyman observed that the knee did not appear to be “hampering” Bush, who was going through football drills.

Bush has had a positive impact on the Lions’ offense in his first two games with the club, rushing for 115 yards and racking up 145 yards receiving. His versatility makes him a strong fit in a pass-focused Detroit offense.

If Bush were unable to play Sunday, Joique Bell would likely get the bulk of the work at tailback.

    If we can’t beat Washington Sunday, look for the local press to become decidedly more pessimistic regarding the future of our coaching “brain trust.”

    With good reason, I’d say. But I think the Lions get it done on Sunday.

    Detroit is soon to be 0-22 all time in DC. Can’t wait!

    “I guess garbage time is coming quicker this week coach. How does RG3 feel about padding the stats again.”

    With Bush in the lineup, Lions have one of the best offenses in the league. With out him, much like without Best, Lions struggle. I don’t put this all on the players either, the play calling makes me scratch my head sometimes. Here’s to hoping he plays.

    redskins 0-3, yes their ressurection to the basement has been televised

    Best news I’ve heard all day.

    We’ve got Bush!!!!!

    redskins D is already down 14-0 and the game hasnt even started yet, IRG3 the overated

  14. dansyndersux says: Sep 20, 2013 1:03 PM

    At this point Im just hoping our offense shows up in the 1st half. The defense is a lost cause.

  15. bennyb82 says: Sep 20, 2013 1:07 PM

    Just thought I would add that there are 40 players in the league who have more targets than Calvin Johnson.

    It appears that the Lions and their fans are overconfident coming into this game. They basically regard the Redskins as so poor that winning the game on the road is a foregone conclusion.

    I’m not counting on a Redskins win; they have SIGNIFICANT problems with a porous defense and a QB still recovering from injury.

    But gosh, I hope the Lions bring this overconfident attitude into DC this Sunday…

    I was a little worried with the long losing streak, and the second half against Arizona, but this is great news. I went from fearing a loss to feeling confident in a win by one report.

    Why practice? Remember, it’s Detroit. It’s not like it is going to help.

  19. bennyb82 says: Sep 20, 2013 1:41 PM

    You know if Bush can walk without a limp he is gonna play…but he is the type of player who is much much better at 100 percent than 90 percent. I hope he gets a week off…

    What you say makes absolutely no sense but were pretty used to that from you at this point.

    With the Lions looking like favorites to end their DC losing streak, the Revenge of the Nerds reference seems all too appropriate!

  22. steelerben says: Sep 20, 2013 2:02 PM

    If he is up to speed and the knee is going to hold out then he could have a huge day against a Washington defense that has shown a lot of difficulty tackling a shifty back.

  23. couldziggybetheansah says: Sep 20, 2013 2:31 PM

    If the Lions win on Sunday it will be because they played a strong defensive game and didn’t turn the ball over.
    There are no “should ” wins for the Lions … they need to play well in all three phases of the game to win.
    I’ve seen them snatch defeat from the jaws of victory too many times to believe they are going to win easily on Sunday.

  24. kerryc21realty says: Sep 20, 2013 2:37 PM

    All these lions fans are soooo confident. Why, was it the great game you played against the cardinals? Skins 34 lions 17. HTTR

  25. kerryc21realty says: Sep 20, 2013 2:40 PM

    I just read that the almighty lions have lost 21 straight games in DC what a great football history you have in the great city of Detroit. LOL LOL LOL

  26. pacificamjr says: Sep 20, 2013 3:12 PM

    if the lions lose this game, they suck

  27. gibson34 says: Sep 20, 2013 3:37 PM

    what? no illogical voice iii…….I think he has given up too…..LMAO.

    If the Lions don’t win this game, they’re done winning for the year. And they have never won in Washington.

  29. specialteamsposter says: Sep 20, 2013 5:12 PM

    Any updates on Fairley and his shoulder? He is going to be key vs. Washington’s run game. Heck, we were making Mendenhall look decent running the ball last week in Arizona.

  30. boyshole25 says: Sep 20, 2013 7:13 PM

    Megaton is a beast but the lions don’t have enough to bet the skins. Washington wins 24 17

  31. 7096lions says: Sep 20, 2013 10:32 PM

    If Lions lose @ Washington – Schwartz is immediately on the bubble. Start the game with a reverse again….no one will be looking for it – lol
