Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush suffered an injury scare during Sunday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals which forced him to miss the remainder of the first half, but he was able to return in the second.
Unfortunately for Bush, he was still shaky and ended up losing a fumble, before making his way back to the bench and sitting out the remainder of the game.
After the team’s loss to the Cardinals, Bush admitted that he may have made the wrong call by re-entering the game and he is set to undergo an MRI on the injured knee on Monday.
However, he is not too concerned about what the tests will show.
“I’m not too concerned,” Bush said, via Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. “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 looked stellar in his first game as a member of the Detroit Lions, so the team has to be hoping he is correct.
Without Bush, Joique Bell would be the man in the backfield. That would be a less than ideal scenario.
