Reggie Bush day-to-day with calf injury


The snowy field in Philadelphia claimed a victim before the game even started on Sunday when Lions running back Reggie Bush aggravated his calf injury while warming up before the game against the Eagles.

Bush didn’t play in the game as a result, leaving the Lions a little short at running back because they had already handed in their inactive list when Bush tweaked his calf. Coach Jim Schwartz termed Bush day-to-day on Monday, saying, via the Detroit Free Press, that it was too early to know if he’ll be able to play in Week 15 against the Ravens. The same is true for defensive end Ziggy Ansah, who hurt his shoulder, and right tackle LaAdrian Waddle, who hurt his elbow.

“We’ll just have to see this week how they respond. It’s a big game, it’s a home game,” Schwartz said. “Obviously, we’re three games left in the year, we’re at the top of our division, so every game is pretty critical, so I’m pretty sure those guys will do everything they can to get back on the field. But if they can’t go, we’ll have the next guy behind them ready to play.”

Schwartz also said cornerback Darius Slay had arthroscopic knee surgery, but the team has no plans to place him on injured reserve.
