One of the Lions’ most important offensive players could be a late-week addition to the injury report.

Lions running Reggie Bush did not participate in practice on Friday, Tim Twentyman of DetroitLions.com reported.

Per Twentyman, Bush’s right leg was “wrapped up.”

According to Chris McCosky of the Detroit News, Bush’s ailment is in his “upper leg.”

Bush was not on the club’s injury report on Wednesday or Thursday.The Lions (4-3) host the Cowboys (4-3) on Sunday.

Bush has rushed for 426 yards and a touchdown on 98 carries for Detroit this season. He’s also caught 23 passes for 305 yards and two TDs. Bush missed the Week Three win at Washington with a knee ailment but was back in the lineup the next week.

Joique Bell is Bush’s primary backup.

    Like I said earlier in the season Lions will be lucky to get 8 games out of the delicate Bush…

    Joigue Bell has potential to be a good NFL running back, I love when players get chances to prove themselves.

    As a Dolphins fan I loved having Bush on the team the only downside was his durability.

    Well, considering that the Lions have played 7 games and Reggie’s played in 5 1/2 of them, I’d take that bet. He only needs to participate in 3 more games out their remaining 9 to exceed your 8 game luckiness.

    Some guys can’t seem to shake the injury prone tag, even when recent durability proves otherwise. They said the same thing about Stafford too – he’s only played 2 1/2 seasons straight without missing a game.

    Joique Bell IS a good NFL running back. They compliment each other, and one is less effective without the other. I don’t understand people that view them in competition for a job, when they each have their own already.

    If he don’t go maybe all this sitting LeShore has done might have lit a fire under him too. We will need a run game if we plan to win on Sunday, we can’t just throw it up and hope for the best. We need to slow the game down some. Our secondary against Dallas receivers is not a good match with no run game

    Probably another deep thigh bruise.

    He’ll play.

    Doesn’t matter
    Lions are going nowhere anyway

    The best thing the Lions could do for Bush is to sit him when he is not 100%. When he sat out for a game earlier this year, he bounced back in a major way. Considering the Lions have a bye next week, he will probably play…hopefully they are smart about his use. He is not the same player when he is even a little banged up.

    Are you really trying to say that missing only 1.5 out of 7 games hardly proves he’s no longer injury prone?

    I love it when people come on and say

    “Like I said months ago” etc

    suuuuuuuuuuuuure you did

    “Are you really trying to say that missing only 1.5 out of 7 games hardly proves he’s no longer injury prone?”

    OK, how about this:

    In 2011, Bush played in 15 of 16 games. Of those 15 games, he only recorded fewer than 10 carries once. In 2012, Bush played in 16 of 16 games. Of those 16, he recorded fewer than 10 carries only twice.

    THAT sounds like a guy who has the injury-prone tag that isn’t really injury prone.

    I saw what the Dallas D did to Shady and MeSean Jackson last weekend. Reggie bush is no LeSean McCoy, and I think Dallas can have similar success against him. What the Cowboys need to focus on most is getting to Stafford and trying to contain Calvin Johnson. He is an absolute beast. Stafford under pressure is going to create big opportunities for the Dallas D.

    Dallas thankfully won’t have a cursing and bumbling Rob Ryan doing his best Fe Fi Fo Fum impression on the sideline after ineptly thinking Terrance Newman could single cover Johnson in the end zone. Johnson will be defensed a lot better than that this time around, but it still may end up being an impossible task.

    Dallas needs to do what Cleveland did to him and limit him to minimal catches and yards. If they can also get to Stafford and create turnovers due to pressure, Dallas should get out of Detroit with a win.

    We will see what happens. Now is the time of the season when the Dings & Bruises add too the wear & tear of a players durability. My bet it goes down hill from here very fast… What odds will you give me?

    You may be right about the additive nature of injuries, and wear and tear. Maybe. But the most recent 2 1/2 seasons worth of games suggest he’s not delicate. For a high-use running back, I’d say he’s borderline durable.

    And if you’re looking for “odds”, your original post stated 8 games. That sounds like an over/under. I’ll take the over.
