Reggie Bush limited to light work with no cutting at Lions practice

Lions running back Reggie Bush got benched on a muddy day in Pittsburgh earlier this season, leading to a dispute between Bush and coach Jim Schwartz about whether or not Bush was a mudder.

Bush insists he loves the slop and he’d like to see it in Philadelphia when the Lions travel to face the Eagles this weekend.

“I actually welcome it and I love playing in the bad weather conditions,” Bush said, via MLive.com. “I feel like it’s an advantage for the running backs because the defenders, safeties and the linebackers don’t know which way we are going. Anytime we can make a move and get them off balance, especially in bad weather and in mud, that’s a win for the running back.”

The weather may not be the biggest issue for Bush this week, however. Bush missed practice on Wednesday because of a calf injury. Tim Twentyman of the team’s website reports that Bush was back on the field Thursday, but wasn’t wearing a helmet and was doing only “very light” work during the session. Bush wasn’t doing any cutting, so people will be keeping an eye on his injury reports for the next few days while Bush focuses on the weather.

    Bush will be fine, but the Lions will get out coached as usual.

    Eagles 34 – Lions 27.

    The whole Reggie Bush/mud thing arose fron the Pittsburgh game, not Chicago.

    Remember when Reggie played the Eagles and Sheldon Brown baptized him, and shut him up for the rest of the game? Remember how SI put the picture of Reggie getting blown up on the cover that week? So many fond memories…

    That was the greatest hit I’ve ever seen while watching game (may have seen some better ones on tape). My Dad, brothers, and I all jumped off the couch simultaneously and started going nuts.

    Too bad the birds didn’t pull it off in the end.

    7-2 = Lions when Reggie Bush totals over 80 yards

    0-3 = Lions when Reggie Bush totals under 70 yards

    I think they need to start using Reggie a lot wiser then they do. Bush can run up the middle but he can’t take the poundings. They should of pulled Bush for all of the fourth quarter last week. Especially if Bell kept doing what he was doing all day. I just want to see Reggie get at least 3 good seasons for us and enjoy what he has left. Not work horse him and next season were saying he has nothing left.
