                     === Lions' Bush on track to return ===
 Allen  Park, MI  (Sports Network) - Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush put
 in  a second  consecutive full practice on Thursday, increasing his likelihood
 of playing in Sunday's game against NFC North rival Chicago.
 Bush  was inactive for  the Lions' 27-20 Week 3 victory at Washington due to a
 bruised  left  knee the versatile  veteran sustained in  a loss at Arizona the
 previous Sunday.
 The  eighth-year pro,  who signed  with  Detroit as  a free  agent during  the
 offseason,  totaled 191 yards from scrimmage and had a 77-yard touchdown catch
 in his Lions' debut in Week 1, a 34-24 home win over Minnesota.
 Bush  will likely  share time  with Joique  Bell, who  put up  132 yards  from
 scrimmage with a touchdown against the Redskins, if he's active on Sunday.
 Three other Lions, most notably star wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), were
 limited  participants in  Thursday's  practice after  sitting out  Wednesday's
 session.  Safety  Louis Delmas (knee) and  left guard Rob Sims (shoulder) also
 got in some work.
 The  only Detroit player absent from Thursday's workout was wide receiver Nate
 Burleson,  who  is expected to miss  between 6-to-8 weeks after fracturing his
 arm in a car accident earlier in the week.
