Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said RBs Reggie Bush and Joique Bell likely will receive similar workloads this upcoming season than they did during the 2013 season. Bush played 54 percent of the offensive snaps in 2013 while Bell participated in 49 percent of the snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Bush and Bell likely will be offensive factors in 2014 as long as they are able to stay healthy. Both could be considered No. 2 or No. 3 running backs for owners this upcoming season based on the matchup.
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 07:33:29 -0700
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he is fine with a potentially smaller workload in 2014. RB Joique Bell is expected to cut into Bush's workload more this season.
Fantasy Tip: Bush's value could begin to plummet this season at the age of 29. He still remains a good RB2 in PPR leagues, but Bell is starting to emerge. He's a good RB3 with potential for more.
Sat, 01 Feb 2014 08:33:05 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he talked with general manager Martin Mayhew and president Tom Lewand about keeping running backs coach Curtis Modkins on the coaching staff. Head coach Jim Caldwell has kept Modkins on the coaching staff.
Fri, 31 Jan 2014 16:10:19 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he is feeling good and hopes to be able to play at least five more seasons in the NFL.
Fri, 10 Jan 2014 17:11:35 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Joique Bell, a restricted free agent, might push RB Reggie Bush for the starting job in 2014 if he is re-signed. "I have no question he could start," former offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said Friday, Jan. 10. "He's a guy that can handle a pretty heavy load. The thing about him is he has versatility to do that. He can be in the role we have him now (or he can) start a game. He's a guy that can go out there and get 100 yards for you running the football as well as produce in the passing game."
Fantasy Tip: Bell is an interesting fantasy option to watch for 2014. If he returns to Detroit, he could be a player to watch. However, Detroit's offense will change with a new regime, so there is a lot of uncertainty until the team hires a staff and gets back onto the field in the spring.
Sun, 29 Dec 2013 17:15:21 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush is the first Lions running back to go over 1,000 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards in a season since RB Billy Sims back in 1980.
Fantasy Tip: Bush carried 14 times for 32 yards in the Week 17 game against the Minnesota Vikings, and he added five receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown.
Thu, 19 Dec 2013 09:23:10 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush cited the team's lack of discipline during a span in which they've lost four of their last five games. He was careful not to put any of that blame on the coaching staff, however. "It's not a coaches thing. It's a players' thing. We can do a better job all across the board," Bush said. "As far as an offense standpoint, turn the ball over and that's the discipline issue, and that's something we have to correct because obviously, as you see, it'll lose you games."

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 19:32:19 -0800

Mon, 16 Dec 2013 16:19:15 -0800

Sat, 14 Dec 2013 12:12:42 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) is questionable for Week 15.
Fantasy Tip: It sounds like he has a good chance to play, but he could aggravate the injury again - much like last week. Keep an eye on his status through pre-game warmups.
Sat, 14 Dec 2013 09:40:52 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) is participating in practice Saturday, Dec. 14.
Fri, 13 Dec 2013 14:23:14 -0800

Thu, 12 Dec 2013 11:00:58 -0800
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) said he will practice Friday, Dec. 13. Bush said he feels good, and sitting out practice Thursday was just precautionary.
Thu, 12 Dec 2013 09:30:06 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) did not participate in practice Thursday, Dec. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Bush has said he will be ready to go, and he missed two practices last week before returning to practice on Friday, so there is nothing to worry about at this point. Check back later in the week.
Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:55:46 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in the team's Week 15 game. Bush said he is not sure how he aggravated his calf injury during pregame warmups last week.
Fantasy Tip: Bush should be in all starting lineups if he is able to play. There's a decent chance Bush will be limited, sharing touches with Joique Bell, who could remain a flex play in point-per-reception leagues, even if Bush is in the lineup.
Mon, 09 Dec 2013 10:19:04 -0800
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz said RB Reggie Bush (calf) is considered day-to-day at this point.
Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor his practice participation this week to see if he will be able to play Week 15. Owners should have a backup plan ready in case Bush is not able to play.
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 17:58:54 -0800
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) aggravated his calf injury during pregame warmups in Week 14 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and he did not play. Because Bush's injury happened so late, the team had just two active running backs, RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick.
Sun, 08 Dec 2013 12:44:32 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) has not entered the Week 14 game.

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 10:08:16 -0800

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 09:57:37 -0800
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) did aggravate his calf injury during pregame warmups but will try to play in the team's Week 14 game.

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 09:24:06 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) may have aggravated his calf injury when he slipped during pregame warmups. His status for Week 14 is uncertain.

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 08:41:45 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) is active for the team's Week 14 game.

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 06:15:13 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) is expected to play in the team's Week 14 game.

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 13:35:47 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 6, and is questionable for Week 14.
Fantasy Tip: It is good news that Bush increased his work in practice Friday, but this may come right down to the wire. Monitor his status into the weekend. If he goes, you have to get him into your lineup.
Thu, 05 Dec 2013 10:00:39 -0800
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (calf) did some very light individual work in practice Thursday, Dec. 5. Bush did not do any cutting on his injured calf in practice.
Fantasy Tip: While it can be seen as good that Bush was able to do anything at all, the idea that he was unable to do much and did not do any cutting on the injured calf is concerning. Joique Bell would carry the load if Bush can't go and could be a decent play.
Wed, 04 Dec 2013 08:55:20 -0800
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.
Tue, 19 Nov 2013 15:01:05 -0800
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.
Tue, 19 Nov 2013 12:20:19 -0800
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.
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 19:52:02 -0700
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.
