Reggie Bush says he missed practice out of precaution

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.

    When something is easily breakable you have to handle with caution.

    Maybe all the “fragile” talk from 30 minutes ago was an overreaction football fans.

    I feel bad for Reggie Bush

    He has to play for a franchise filled with losing and embarrassment, not a great way to end your career

    Good to hear he’ll play Sunday. We’ll need all our weapons if we’re to go into the bye week with a win and stay in the chase.

    Good deal, I have bye week issues and cant afford to drop anyone.

    I thought the Dolphins were unbelievably stupid for letting Reggie Bush leave, but it’s starting to make a little sense. He’s older and much more fragile, the Dolphins have a potential Top 5 runningback someday in Lamar Miller, makes sense.

    “a potential Top 5 runningback someday in Lamar Miller”

    A lot of speculation there.

    Reggie Bush is on a pace to have almost 2,000 yards from scrimmage this year. He has 731 yards on 121 touches over 5 games so far this year.

    For the Lions, Reggie Bush is the new Barry Sanders. In some ways, he’s even better based on his yards receiving.

    You could say that Reggie Bush is a poor man’s Marshall Faulk. He will never be as good as Faulk but he can line up all over the field as well as run the ball.
