Reggie Bush suffered an MCL injury in Week 8 and is done for the season.

Week 12: vs Arizona Cardinals

All RB vs ARI

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Back in Week Three Carlos Hyde (now on the shelf with a foot injury) was starting for the 49ers - these days it is Shaun Draughn. Draughn rushed for 12/37/0 and caught 8-of-11 targets for 40 yards during the 49ers' loss to the Seahawks last week - he was the only running back to handle the ball during the contest. There hasn't been much running room due to the state of the 49ers' passing offense, but Draughn is getting opportunities, at least. The Cardinals' rush D is ranked sixth in the NFL averaging 93.5 yards allowed per game, with seven scores handed over to date. Over the past four weeks (three games), the Cardinals check in at 13th in the NFL averaging 18.2 fantasy points given up to opposing backs - Cincinnati managed 28/99/2 rushing vs. Arizona last week. This is a bad matchup for the sputtering 49ers' offense.

Recent Game Summaries

2015 Week 8 vs STL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bush didn't touch the ball on San Francisco's first drive, though was the target of an errant pass. Just prior to the second drive, he slipped on the concrete walkway surrounding the field after returning a punt -- game over and season likely over. It's been that kind of year for Bush, and that kind of year for the 49ers.

2015 Week 7 vs SEA (4 / 21 / 0 rush, 5 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)

Four of Bush's nine opportunities came on 3rd-and-long. He also ran the proverbial "halftime draw" on 2nd-and-24. None of these defensive-indifference situations produced big plays. He might have put up better yardage numbers if not for dropping his first target of the game (on 3rd-and-7) and running into the back of his own blocker on a otherwise well-executed outside zone later in the game.

2015 Week 4 vs GB (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)

Bush was barely used in a game set up perfectly for his situational personnel package, and with a quarterback obsessed with throwing short passes. That said, his 2 fourth-quarter targets could have ended up being productive if not for Kaepernick throwing the ball at Bush's feet. Also, Bush's lone carry came on the coaching staff's most bizarre play-call of the game: a 3rd-and-11 inside handoff.

2015 Week 1 vs MIN (2 / 8 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Bush didn't do much against the Vikings, playing only 8 snaps, running 4 routes, carrying twice, and being targeted once before leaving the game with a calf strain midway through the first quarter. The good news, however, is threefold. First, his injury appears to be minor, so he won't be missing many, if any, games. Second, Bush's 8 snaps were out of a possible 16 plays at the time of his exit, so there's no question that he's San Francisco's primary running back in passing situations when healthy. Finally, while one of his carries produced an injury, the other produced a highlight reminder of Bush's athleticism. On San Francisco's fourth play of the game, Bush took the handoff on a read-option play that Minnesota initially defended well. He then eluded a tackle in the backfield, stiff-armed safety Andrew Sendejo (also in the backfield), and accelerated around right end for 8 yards.
