Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs CAR (6 / 26 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Bush rarely had room to operate against an active Carolina front seven pursuit. Backfield mate Joique Bell was the preferred interior option and Bush found no perimeter room. Bush's highlight play came early in the second half as two jump cuts on a red zone carry nearly resulted in a touchdown. Other than that and a short gain on an outlet reception, Bush was bottled up in a tempered performance by the entire Detroit offense in Carolina.

2014 Week 3 vs GB (12 / 61 / 1 rush, 8 / 6 / 38 / 0 rec)

Bush was at his best in open space against Green Bay as interior running lanes were at a premium throughout the game. In the second quarter, Bush put a highlight-worthy double-move on a Packers linebacker, coming wide open to convert the third-and-long play into field goal range. In the second half, Bush's persistence through tough carries in the first half started to pay dividends. The Packers defense was on the field for nearly 38 minutes in the game and Bush looked fresher compared to the defenders over the final two quarters. Bush gained the corner and exploded through a defender near the goal line for a mid-range touchdown, and then spins to convert a third-and-short with three minutes to play as Detroit played keep away to milk the late lead. While few opportunities inside were available this week, Bush made the most of his opportunities as a receiver and on the edge of the defense.

2014 Week 4 vs NYJ (12 / 46 / 0 rush, 6 / 4 / 19 / 0 rec)

Bush was held in check by the Jets front seven until the closing minutes this week. Defenders beat Bush to the corner and yards after contact between the tackles were non-existent. Most of his rushing yards, 32, came on the final drive as Detroit milked the clock. On his highlight run, Bush juked a free defender in the backfield and got loose to the outside. As he approached the sideline, Bush spun back into play to keep the clock moving with less than three minutes remaining. When the Lions needed a running game nursing a seven-point lead, Bush was the back of choice and he delivered in the fourth quarter. No scoring opportunities were available this week and Bush was also stuffed on a third-and-short carry. In addition, Bush did not get his head around on a third down target as it bounced off his arms.

Lions | Plan to use Reggie Bush more (Fri Sep 19, 05:49 PM) - Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has seen RB Joique Bell take more carries over the first two games of the season, but Bush is remaining patient as the team ranks 28th in the league in rushing yards (146) and 29th in yards per carry (3.04). Offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is staying patient, too, as the running game was taken away in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers when they fell behind.

Our View: Bush played about as well as he has in his entire career to open last season, but he hasn't been able to break the big plays in limited touches over his first two games. This is a good reason to at least plug Bush in as a flex even though he has disappointed thus far.
