Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) sat out of practice Wednesday, Dec. 4.
Fantasy Tip: Bush's inclusion on the injury report is only notably because it's his calf and not the knee that has held him out of practices earlier this year. We don't know the extent of the injury, so keep tabs on his status the rest of the week. Joique Bell could be a decent flex play if Bush is limited at all against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush disagreed with head coach Jim Schwartz and thinks that he is a running back that can perform well in all conditions. "I pride myself on being able to run in all conditions, you know what I mean, and I think the opposite," Bush said. "I think running in those types of conditions is, for me, I think is better because now the defenders have to be constantly on their heels and toes and we can get guys off-balanced in mud and when it's rainy and slippery, it's kind of an advantage to the running back." However, he agreed that he didn't play well in adverse conditions in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Detroit Lions RB Theo Riddick, who has a similar running style to RB Reggie Bush, saw more playing time in Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers after Bush lost his second fumble in the last three games. However, head coach Jim Schwartz refuses to say that Bush was benched in the contest. "It was just a couple of plays," Schwartz said. "We didn't have Joique Bell at that time, he had gone out of the game. Reggie had been taking a lot of reps. We wanted to take a little bit of that load off of him. It wasn't more than anything there."
Tue, 19 Nov 2013 09:53:03 -0800
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz suggested that RB Reggie Bush wasn't used as much in the team's Week 11 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers because of sloppy conditions on the field. "Reggie in horse racing wouldn't be called a mudder. He's an explosively quick guy. He's better on a fast track," Schwartz said.
Fantasy Tip: Bush had 12 carries for 35 yards and added two catches for 23 yards in the loss. Preserving the health of the oft-injured runner may have been in mind, as well, on a wet and muddy field. The good news: Four of Detroit's last five games in the fantasy season will come on their home turf.
Mon, 18 Nov 2013 05:14:28 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush was benched in Week 11 after losing a fumble and getting away with another one that wasn't challenged.
Fri, 15 Nov 2013 20:42:35 -0800
Detroit Lions TE Brandon Pettigrew said Friday, Nov. 15, that he has had to make fewer catches in heavy traffic this season with a defender right on him. It is the effect of RB Reggie Bush on offense and the ability to spread the ball to multiple receivers, leaving defenses guessing on a lot of plays. "(QB Matthew Stafford) has a great amount of confidence in him, especially in situations where we want to move the chains or we know that people are going to be playing for an outside route," offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said.
Fri, 15 Nov 2013 14:05:19 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 15, but is listed as probable for Week 11.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Bush was only receiving a day off. Owners should have Bush in their starting lineups this week.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 13:48:40 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) did not participate in practice Friday, Nov. 8, and is probable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: New to the injury report on Friday, it is still a good sign that Bush is listed as probable. It is likely he will play.
Fri, 08 Nov 2013 09:52:29 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush, who rushed for 139 yards in his first meeting with the Chicago Bears this year, knows that their weakness is stopping the run and is ready to exploit it again. "We feel like there is some room for us to take advantage of them in the run game. We just have to make sure we go in and play fundamentally sound," Bush said. Chicago is allowing 127.5 rushing yards per game this season, ranking them 29th in the league. They've allowed 408 rushing yards in their last two games.
Fantasy Tip: Bush and the Lions will surely attack Chicago on the ground repeatedly, and they should have a good deal of success, making Bush a very strong play this weekend. Joique Bell should see valuable touches, too, making him a consideration as a flex in deeper leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (shoulder) left the Week 8 game against the Dallas Cowboys briefly due to an apparent shoulder injury, but he was able to check back in and finish up. Bush ended up running for 92 yards on 21 carries with a touchdown, and he added eight receptions for 30 yards.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 12:46:25 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (shoulder, chest) left the Week 8 game briefly with an injury to his right shoulder and chest region.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 06:54:26 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is expected to play in the team's Week 8 game.
Sat, 26 Oct 2013 16:28:42 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) likely will play Week 8 even though he did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 25.
Sat, 26 Oct 2013 08:36:44 -0700
Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he is more concerned about the team defending Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush Week 8 than he is defending WR Calvin Johnson. "When I look at where we seem to have some vulnerability using the passes out of the backfield, I look at what San Diego did, I look at times what Philadelphia did, if they were able to do anything at all, coming out of that backfield. That seems defensively to be a rough area for us," Jones said.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 14:07:49 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) did not practice Friday, Oct. 25, but is probable for Week 8.
Fantasy Tip: It's Bush's first time on the injury report this week, which may worry his owners. However, it looks like Detroit held him out as a precaution. He should be ready to go Sunday and is a must-start.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 08:43:25 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (quadriceps) is sitting out of practice Friday, Oct. 25. He came onto the field late in practice with ice wrapped above his right knee.
Fantasy Tip: Consider it precautionary until we hear anything more. It was Bush's left knee that bothered him earlier in the season.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 15:01:56 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell (ribs) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 16. Bell is still dealing with pain and felt a rib "pop" in Week 6 against the Cleveland Browns. X-rays on his ribs came back negative. Bell wanted to test his ribs Wednesday and will try using a chest protector in practice Thursday, Oct. 17, and will likely wear it in Week 7 if he plays. If he doesn't play, RB Mikel Leshoure will likely be active and serve as the backup to RB Reggie Bush.
Fantasy Tip: Lower your expectations a bit if Bell plays through the pain. He remains more intriguing in point-per-reception affairs and as a handcuff to oft-injured Bush.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 23:00:12 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush was held to 44 yards on 13 carries and four catches for 25 yards during his team's 22-9 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, Oct. 6. The Packers' improved run defense mostly contained Bush on first down, leaving the Lions with long second- and third-down situations.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 08:30:05 -0700
Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (knee) has been declared inactive for Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: With Johnson out, Ryan Broyles and Patrick Edwards likely will start at wide receiver with Kris Durham seeing more playing time. Broyles can be a starting option for owners this week, but Edwards and Durahm probably are nothing more than weak flex options in most leagues. Reggie Bush could become more involved in the passing game because of Johnson's injury.
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 10:35:42 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he has become much more of a complete runner and has learned to be an effective rusher in between the tackles, instead of just being used as a slasher on the outside. "When I look back, I'm so much more advanced in just my vision, my understanding of schemes, linebackers, where they have to play their gaps and just all the different things that come along with being a running back," Bush said. "So it's taken a while. It didn't happen overnight. It took me a while, took a couple years." In Bush's final three seasons with the New Orleans Saints, he ran between the tackles 64 percent of the time. In his two seasons with the Miami Dolphins, that number jumped to 76 percent, and so far this season, he's running between the tackles a career-best 81 percent.
Sun, 29 Sep 2013 20:50:50 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was worried about how his knee would hold up in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears, but he was just fine. He totaled 173 yards of offense, including a 37-yard touchdown run. His 139 rushing yards were a season high.
Fri, 27 Sep 2013 15:16:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 27, and is probable for Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Nothing unexpected here. Bush should be a full go this weekend against the Chicago Bears. That tempers the value of Joique Bell to a flex play in deeper leagues.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 14:47:54 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Tip: Bush may be limited a bit in the game Sunday, but he's fully expected to play, which is enough to make you comfortable putting him back in your starting lineup.
Thu, 26 Sep 2013 08:43:48 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) practiced Thursday, Sept. 26.
Fantasy Tip: He should play... whether or not he'll be limited remains to be seen.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 13:15:11 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) fully participated in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 12:16:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was wearing a sleeve on his left knee in practice Wednesday, Sept. 25, but he wasn't showing any other signs of the injury that kept him out in Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: We fully expect Bush to return to action this weekend against the Chicago Bears. The matchup could be a tough one, but Bush should be in your starting lineup if he's playing.
Wed, 25 Sep 2013 09:06:09 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) appeared to be fully participating during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 11:43:02 -0700
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is non-committal on the status of RB Reggie Bush (knee) for the team's Week 4 against the Chicago Bears. Bush said he feels fine and would have played in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins if it were a playoff game. RB Joique Bell had 63 rushing yards and a touchdown and added four catches for 69 yards against the 'Skins. RB Theo Riddick also saw some action out of the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: Monitor Bush's status this week in practice. If he plays Sunday, he's a must-start.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 09:51:10 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) said he could have played in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins if it were a playoff game. "I feel good, man," Bush said. "Honestly, I could have played today but it was coaches and doctors that decided it was best to sit this one out. Just to not risk any further injury. If it was a playoff game, I would have been in there." Bush said he'll be 100 percent healthy and ready to go in Week 4 against the Chicago Bears.
Fantasy Tip: Be ready to get Bush back into your lineups next weekend. However, he remains a big injury risk, and Detroit could spell him more often with Bell, who had a productive day Sunday. Joique Belll should be owned in all leagues and remains a nice flex play, even with Bush playing.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 21:47:05 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell carried 20 times for 63 yards in Week 4 against the Washington Redskins, making the start with RB Reggie Bush (knee) sidelined. Bell added four catches for 69 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Bush vows to play in Week 4, but Bell should still be in line for plenty of touches. Still, if Bush is back, Bell's fantasy value is diminished. Consider him an RB3 or flex play in standard leagues of 12 or more fantasy teams, and treat him as an RB2 or flex option in leagues which reward points per reception (PPR).
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 21:46:24 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) said Sunday, Sept. 22, that he will be ready to play in Week 4. "I guarantee I'll play next week," Bush said. "Yes. Knee's good. I'll be back this week."
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 08:37:28 -0700
The Detroit Lions have declared DL Devin Taylor, FS Don Carey, OT Jason Fox, QB Kellen Moore, OG Leroy Harris, WR Patrick Edwards, RB Reggie Bush inactive for Week 3.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 06:37:04 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is not expected to play in the team's Week 3 game due to the knee injury. Bush is expected to return in Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Get Joique Bell into your starting lineups for Week 3, as he will likely get most of the work out of the backfield. Theo Riddick could also see time on third downs as a pass catcher out of the backfield.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 06:19:40 -0700
The Detroit Lions may hold out RB Reggie Bush (knee) from playing in Week 3 as a precaution due to swelling. Bush is pushing to play.
Fantasy Tip: This one may go right to kickoff, keep an eye on the inactive list to see if Bush dresses, but be prepared to go with Joique Bell if he canít go.
Sat, 21 Sep 2013 12:46:38 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) could end up being a game-time decision for Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: He practiced Friday, which is a good indication. However, stay tuned to see if they decide to hold him out and ride the effectiveness of Joique Bell.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 14:37:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was limited during practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is listed as questionable for Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: Bush's status for the game is uncertain at this point, so owners should wait for the inactive lists before deciding on their lineups. If he does play, he probably will share some carries with Joique Bell because he may not be able to handle a full workload. Bush and Bell should be in starting lineups if both play in the game.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 13:35:40 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) returned to practice and was wearing a sleeve on his knee Friday, Sept. 20. He ran routes and caught passes and didn't appear to be favoring his left knee.
Fantasy Tip: This doesn't mean Bush is a lock to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins, but it's a good step for him. Check his practice status later in the day and monitor his progress up until Sunday morning. Regardless of whether Bush plays, Joique Bell should see increased touches and is a strong flex play this week.
Fri, 20 Sep 2013 08:39:18 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is practicing Friday, Sept. 20.
Fantasy Tip: This is a great sign that he'll be able to play in Week 3. Get him in your lineups.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 12:30:52 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is optimistic about playing in Week 3 against the Washington Redskins and plans to return to practice Friday, Sept. 20. Head coach Jim Schwartz said whether Bush practices will have no effect on if he'll play Sunday, Sept. 22. "I think it's a lot further than I expected and it feels a lot better than I thought it was going to feel. So I'm just happy where it is right now. Today was a very positive day and we'll see what happens tomorrow," Bush said.
Fantasy Tip: Bush and the team are pretty concerned about his knee ailment. You should be, too, if you are a Bush owner. Don't be surprised if Bush is a game-time decision Sunday and doesn't wind up playing. Joique Bell, against a weak Redskins D, is a good play this weekend.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 10:58:01 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) did not participate in practice Thursday Sept. 19.
Fantasy Tip: It is not much of a surprise that Bush did not practice Thursday, and this one may play out right until the team announces its inactive players on game day. Continue to check back as the week rolls on.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 06:52:13 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is optimistic he'll be able to play in Week 3, but he still needs clearance from doctors.
Fantasy Tip: Bush has shown the toughness to be able to fight through injuries. Keep him in your lineup until the gametime decision is made. Teams have shredded the Washington Redskins defense the first two weeks, and it could be a good day to run the ball to eat some clock.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 15:56:08 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is 50-50 to play in the team's Week 3 game with a knee issue.
Fantasy Tip: This is obviously something to keep an eye on moving forward throughout the rest of the week. If he canít go, Joique Bell will likely get most of the work.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 09:52:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was not participating during the media-access portion of practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 08:50:28 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is not practicing Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Tue, 17 Sep 2013 19:22:28 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) received favorable results from the MRI on his left knee Monday, Sept. 16. "The tests (Monday) were encouraging," head coach Jim Schwartz said Tuesday, Sept. 17. "He's going to be sore, but he doesn't have anything that's long term. I guess it could be medium term. It's too hard to speculate on injuries, and that's why I usually don't."
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners should expect to be without Bush for Week 3. Even if he were able to play, he might not be at 100 percent. Either way, Joique Bell and Mikel Leshoure are expected to see more touches as a result of Bush's injury.
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 10:34:16 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said the MRI on RB Reggie Bush's (knee) knee showed no significant damage.
Mon, 16 Sep 2013 10:01:36 -0700
Updating a previous report, the Detroit Lions do not believe the injury suffered by RB Reggie Bush (knee) is serious, and that he could be available to play as soon as Week 3.
Fantasy Tip: This is great news for Bush owners. Monitor his status as the team returns to practice later in the week. If he is able to go, he has a great matchup against the Washington Redskins in Week 3.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 17:30:55 -0700
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said Sunday, Sept. 15, that RB Reggie Bush (knee) will have a battery of tests Monday, Sept. 16, on his troublesome knee, including an MRI.
Fantasy Tip: If Bush is forced to miss any time, Joique Bell might see a huge increase in touches heading into the Week 3 game against the winless Washington Redskins. Mikel Leshoure might also re-emerge as a somewhat useful fantasy option, at least as a flex play in deeper leagues.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 16:08:10 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) returned to the Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals, but he apparently aggravated the injury in the third quarter and was testing the injury on the sidelines. He has yet to return.
Sun, 15 Sep 2013 14:18:34 -0700
Updating an earlier report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) is questionable to return to the Week 2 game due to a knee injury.
