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.

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.

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."

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.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush was benched in Week 11 after losing a fumble and getting away with another one that wasn't challenged.

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.

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.
