Reggie Bush is “officially out” for game against Redskins


The Detroit Lions will have to beat the Washington Redskins without the help of their dual-threat running back Reggie Bush. ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports that Reggie Bush has been listed as “officially out” of the game today.

This shouldn’t come as too big of a surprise. Despite Bush’s optimism all week, there were doubts all along that he’d be available to play. There were reports that the Lions might hold him out of the game to give him extra rest to recover instead of risking a further set back.

There were reports that he was pushing to play, but ultimately he wasn’t able to convince coaches to let him on the field. In his place Joique Bell will get the start for the Lions.
