Lions running back Reggie Bush was an unexpected observer at Lions practice on Friday, showing up for the session with his right leg wrapped up after practicing without issue on both Wednesday and Thursday.
According to Bush, though, there’s no reason for the Lions to make alternate arrangements in the backfield this weekend. Bush didn’t delve into specifics about any injury, but did say that Friday’s decision was a precautionary one and that he’ll be in the backfield against the Cowboys on Sunday.
“I’m fine,” Bush said, via Kyle Meinke of MLive.com. “I’m playing Sunday. That’s all you guys need to know. That’s it.”
The Lions will release their injury report later on Friday, so we’ll see where they wind up listing the running back but Detroit veterans often get rest days and this doesn’t appear to be any different. Bush has missed one game this season with a left knee injury, which would not seem to be related to his absence from practice on Friday.
