According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush is fully expected to play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. On the injury report, Bush is listed as probable and he sat out Friday’s practice with a knee injury. Friday was just a rest day for Bush in an effort to get him healthy for Sunday’s match up.

“Feel good,” Bush said. “Just taking a day off, getting ready for the game on Sunday.”

Bush has been an integral part of the Lions offense this season as a dual threat. For fantasy owners of Joique Bell, he is expected to get his normal 8-10 touches.

With a banged up defensive line, the Lions could run all over the Cowboys today. The Cowboys have the 13th ranked run defense in the league, they’re allowing an average of 102 yards per game. Of course, the Lions could look to exploit their significantly weaker pass defense.
