Description: Fantasy owners can't be happy with Lions running back Reggie Bush over the first two weeks of the season.
Insight: Bush has a total of 96 yards from scrimmage over the pair of games and backup Joique Bell is getting more rushing attempts than he is. Perhaps Bush's knee is more sore than he's let on to the public. This is a shared situation with a quarterback who likes to throw 650-700 times a season.

Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers.
Insight: Bush has a tough matchup on the road against Carolina, but it will help that Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy is inactive. Bush should be in your lineup.

Description: Detroit running back Reggie Bush is dealing with knee soreness, but was a full participant in Thursday's practice.
Insight: That's an upgrade from Wednesday and bodes well for his being ready for Sunday's matchup against Carolina. The Panthers held Tampa Bay to 14 points and 113 yards on the ground and will be a good test for the Lions' running game.

Insight: Fantasy owners who weren't able to get Bush out of their lineup in time last Sunday probably don't have much to play for in Week 15. If you were one of the lucky ones who got Bush out in time, make sure to get him back in your lineup this week. Let's hope he makes it through warmups unscathed this time around.

Description: Lions beat writer Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press expects running back Reggie Bush (calf) to play Monday night against the Ravens.
Insight: Bush suffered a calf injury during practice last week and aggravated it when he slipped during warmups on Sunday. He's expected to play his regular allotment of snaps if he's active, but fantasy owners who don't also have Joique Bell are taking a risk starting him with no other options available Monday.

Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in Week 15, but fantasy owners would like to see him practice before putting him in the lineup.
Insight: Bush aggravated his calf injury during practice last week but was in line to play against Philadelphia, then had problems in warmup and didn't play a single down. With a game on Monday night, owners who don't own Joique Bell, will have a tough decision to make.

Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in Week 15, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. The running back was a late scratch in Week 14 against the Eagles after he slipped in the snow during warmups and aggravated his calf injury.
Insight: Bush suffered the injury during practice last week but was in line to play against Philadelphia. Joique Bell ended up starting and handling 27 touches in the blizzard conditions. Because Detroit plays Monday against the Ravens, its first official practice of the week will come Thursday.

Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush will be questionable for Week 15 following the very, very late scratch from the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Bush slipped and aggravated his calf injury during warmups resulting in his not playing Sunday against Philadelphia. Unfortunately, it was just before the kickoff that fantasy owners got the news and many couldn't make a lineup change in time.

Description: Lions halfback Reggie Bush slipped and aggravated his calf injury during warmups and wasn't able to start Sunday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Joique Bell was in the backfield for the Lions' first offensive series. There's been no definitive word from the team as to whether or not Bush will play, but given the snowy weather conditions there probably won't be a lot of offense in this game anyway.

Description: Lions halfback Reggie Bush slipped and aggravated his calf injury during warmups and is now questionable for Sunday's game versus the Eagles. SOURCE: NBC's Pro Football Talk
Insight: If you have Joique Bell as a handcuff to Bush, you have about six minutes to get him into your lineup. Keep in mind, the snowy conditions in Philadelphia probably won't be conducive to fantasy success. The snow is affecting many games around the NFL so fantasy owners shouldn't expect a high-scoring week.

Description: It sounds like Detroit halfback Reggie Bush will suit up for Sunday's game in Philadelphia. He had been listed as questionable with a calf injury. SOURCE: Adam Schefter, ESPN
Insight: It's a hugely important game for both teams and the Lions need their star running back to play a pivotal role. He's coming off a successful outing versus Green Bay (117 yards rushing, 1 TD) and should have another strong game Sunday against the Eagles' 19th-ranked run defense.
 
12/6/2013 6:28:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) practiced Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Insight: Bush missed the previous two days of practice. According to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com, Bush looked "pretty good" in the portion of practice open to the media on Friday, but the team is not ready to make him a sure thing to play Sunday.
 
12/4/2013 4:09:00 PM
Description: Lions running back Reggie Bush missed Wednesday's practice due to a calf injury, according to Tim Twentyman of detroitlions.com.
Insight: Bush practiced Tuesday, so he either suffered the injury then or was simply getting a day off Wednesday. We'll track his progress the rest of the week.

Description: Lions tailback Reggie Bush lost a fumble early in Thursday's game against the Packers but coach Jim Schwartz stuck with him and Bush provided 182 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown on 25 touches (20 carries, five receptions).
Insight: Bush has lost three fumbles over the last five games. After producing 117 rushing yards and 65 receiving yards Thursday, Bush has 854 rushing yards on 180 carries (4.7 ypc), 448 receiving yards on 45 catches and five touchdowns.

Description: Lions tailback Reggie Bush's benching only lasted one quarter, as he returned to action at the start of the third Sunday against the Steelers.
Insight: Bush lost a fumble early in the second quarter and sat on the bench while Joique Bell handled the workload for the remainder of the quarter.
 
11/17/2013 2:34:00 PM
Description: Lions tailback Reggie Bush appears to have been benched after fumbling with 12:41 remaining the the second quarter.
Insight: Joique Bell has been playing since Bush's fumble and scored a touchdown with 1:46 left in the quarter. We'll see if Bush gets more playing time in the second half.
 
11/17/2013 12:20:00 PM
Description: Lions tailback Reggie Bush missed Friday's practice but is active for Sunday against Pittsburgh.
Insight: Bush said he missed practice as a precaution for an issue that is unrelated to the knee injury that caused him to miss a game earlier this season, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Start him as always.
 
10/25/2013 4:33:00 PM
Description: Lions tailback Reggie Bush missed Friday's practice but he is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.
Insight: Bush said he missed practice as a precaution for an issue that is unrelated to the knee injury that caused him to miss a game earlier this season, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
 
9/29/2013 6:33:00 PM
Description: Detroit halfback Reggie Bush burned the Bears for 139 rushing yards in a Week 4 victory at Ford Field.
Insight: Bush showed no signs of the knee injury that caused him to miss last week's game against the Redskins. He added another 34 yards receiving, giving him 433 all purpose yards for the season. Bush should continue to post huge fantasy numbers as long as he's healthy.
 
9/29/2013 11:54:00 AM
Description: Lions halfback Reggie Bush is back in the lineup after sitting out Week 3 because of a knee injury.
Insight: He'll give it a go against Chicago. It's not an ideal matchup and the possibility of Joique Bell vulturing away a touchdown or two does exist. Still, Bush brings plenty of receiving yards to the table, a rare quality in a fantasy running back. For that reason alone, Bush should be a decent RB2/flex option in Week 4.
