Bush has said that he would like to suit for Sunday’s game against Washington, but the Lions are focused on his long-term availability.
Joique Bell would handle the majority of the team’s workload with Bush out, but this situation is worth monitoring leading up to kickoff on Sunday.
Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted Monday afternoon that the Detroit Lions are not worried about running back Reggie Bush‘s injured knee and that he could be ready to play next weekend against the Washington Redskins.
Bush, who was signed in the offseason to give the Lions a legitimate running game, suffered a left knee injury in the first half of the team’s game Week 2 in Arizona.
Head coach Jim Schwartz said following the game that the former USC Trojan was going to undergo MRI tests to ensure the knee’s health.
Bush has a history of injuries, and this season is no different. Since joining the Lions, Bush has already dealt with a tweaked groin, dislocated finger and now this knee injury.
