Raiders | Michael Bush likely to start in Week 5

Oakland Raiders RB Michael Bush (thumb) handled the majority of repetitions in practice Thursday, Oct. 7, and is likely to start in Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers, according to The Associated Press. Bush has just 10 carries this season. "If you look at when Mike's played, it's been the same things," head coach Tom Cable said. "He runs more physical in the box maybe. You may not get as much play on the perimeter but you'll get it running downhill at the defense. (McFadden) has been very productive so we've got to find a way to get that same production but I think Michael's ready to take that load." RB Rock Cartwright will be the backup to Bush if RBs Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Michael Bennett (hamstring) are ruled out.
