News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 20): Bush tweaked his ankle injury and had nagging issues with it during the contest against New Orleans - he wasn't 100% healthy so Joique Bell carried most of the load. Bush is expected to be available for this week's game in London, but stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News for the latest on this developing situation.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Bush is stuck in the not quite healthy can't quite trust him doldrums. Even with a good matchup against the Falcons, it's hard to trust him this week.
General News (Wed Oct 22): partially participated in Wednesday's practice.
Week 8: at Atlanta Falcons
Detailed matchup analysis coming soon.

Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 5 vs BUF (6 / 13 / 0 rush, 5 / 2 / 30 / 0 rec)
With Joique Bell and Theo Riddick out against the Bills, the stage was set for a heavy workload for Bush. Instead, the Buffalo front seven held up in the first half against Bush on the interior and his largest gain inside was called back due to a holding penalty. Bush found room in the passing game, however, with two well-blocked receptions on the perimeter. On one target, Matthew Stafford and Bush were not on the same page, leading to an interception. Bush came out of his break and his head was not all the way back to the quarterback, the ball was behind him, leading to a tipped pass and an interception. Detroit was on the edge of field goal range at the time. Bush sustained an ankle injury in the second half, which paved the way for George Winn to see significant work late in the game.
2014 Week 7 vs NO (4 / 10 / 0 rush, 6 / 5 / 22 / 0 rec)
Bush was back this week, but in and out of the lineup with an ankle injury against the Saints. As a runner, Bush looked to bounce carries outside too often, giving up ground in the process. Bush was stuffed on a rare third-and-short opportunity as well. While more effective in the passing game, Bush still looked off his typical game. Bush dropped a third down outlet target, stalling a drive, as well as inexplicably trying to reverse his field on a traditional screen for a loss. On fourth down in the closing minutes, Bush did draw a defensive pass interference penalty to continue Detroit's ultimate game-winning drive.
Latest NewsLions | Reggie Bush limited during practice (Wed Oct 22, 12:29 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22. Our View: Let's watch this situation closely as the week of practice goes on. Bush should be able to practice fully on Friday--and if he does--then we see him as a RB2 with upside against a bad Falcons defense in Week 8.
link to story Lions | Reggie Bush bothered by ankle (Sun Oct 19, 06:55 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was not benched in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. Bush only played a handful of snaps in the second half in favor of RB Joique Bell because his ankle was bothering him, according to head coach Jim Caldwell. Our View: Bush might not be right until after the Detroit Week 9 bye. He has been a disappointment and Joique Bell should be the only viable Lions RB to start next week at Atlanta. The matchup is good and on turf, so if Bush has a good week of practice, perhaps he'll make for a good flex play.
link to story Lions | Reggie Bush probable (Fri Oct 17, 04:38 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) fully participated in practiced Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for the team's Week 7 game. Our View: Bush has a ton of motivation against the team that traded him for a song to the Miami Dolphins three years ago.
link to story Lions | Calvin Johnson misses another practice (Fri Oct 17, 12:12 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson (ankle) didn't practice for the sixth straight day Friday, Oct. 17. Head coach Jim Caldwell isn't ruling him out for Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints, but he also didn't make it sound like Johnson would play, either. Johnson said earlier this week that he sees no reason to rush back to the field until he's completely healthy. The team will lean heavily on WRs Golden Tate, Corey Fuller and Jeremy Ross, along with RBs Joique Bell and Reggie Bush if Johnson doesn't play again. link to story Lions | Limited practice for Reggie Bush (Thu Oct 16, 04:37 PM) - Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Oct. 16. Our View: Watch this. Bush should be a good RB2 this weekend and will want to play (revenge game against his old team the Saints) but the more he doesn't practice fully the more worried we get. If he does play after limited practice, will he get through the game? We'll be watching for you.
