When the official list of inactives for the Week 14 match up between the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles was announced, Lions starting running back Reggie Bush was listed as active and was expected to play after recovering from a calf injury.
It was all looking good for Bush, but unfortunately it looks like he may have had a setback.
Bush was warming up on the snowy Lincoln Financial Field turf, when he apparently aggravated his injury.
Lions beat writer Tim Twentyman passed along the details:
97.1 sideline reporter @ajortiz3 said Bush may have re-aggravated calf injury. Slipped, slammed helmet down and was surrounded by trainers.

Due to the injury on the rough playing surface, Bush’s status for the game is now uncertain.
It is an unfortunate setback for the team and one that would deliver a blow to their rushing attack in a game where they may need to rely heavily on it. If you have Bush in the starting line up for your fantasy football playoffs, consider alternate options.
