Reggie Bush To Undergo MRI On Injured Knee
By Allen Kim
Reggie Bush was sidelined for the majority of the second half of the Detroit Lions’ loss to the Arizona Cardinals with a knee injury. He took a helmet to the knee midway through the second quarter, and he played sparingly after that.
Bush is set to undergo an MRI today to ensure that there’s no serious damage, per Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.
“I’m not too concerned,” Bush said. “We’ll see how it goes tomorrow and take it one day at a time. I’m not too concerned, though. I think I’ll be all right and I’m going to do everything I can to get back on the field Sunday, even if I have to rehab 24 hours a day.”
Bush was able to return to the game, but he aggravated the knee injury on a play in the third quarter in which he fumbled the ball.
“I wasn’t myself,” he said. “I was reaching for the ball. It was 100 percent my fault and like I said I probably shouldn’t have been in there.”
He finished the day with 25 rushing yards and three receptions for another 44 yards.
“All injuries are a big concern,” Schwartz said. “We’ll just wait and see on the tests and everything else. He felt good enough that we were able to put him back in the game, he didn’t feel good enough that he was able to finish the game so I think you need to consider both of those things.”
While Joique Bell is a more than serviceable replacement, he isn’t nearly as versatile as Bush. Matthew Stafford has clicked with Bush, and their offense won’t be as explosive without him in the backfield.
