The Detroit Lions enter tonight’s big game against the Baltimore Ravens with starting running back Reggie Bush officially bearing the questionable tag. However, it has appeared all week that Bush was in no danger of missing the game and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reconfirmed that belief on Monday morning.

“The expectation within the Lions’ organization is hess going to be out there and take his normal snaps,” said Schefter during an appearance on SportsCenter.

Bush has been slowed down with a calf injury after the past few weeks, but the team appears to have confidence in him carrying the load against the Ravens defense on Monday Night Football.

Of course, it was just one week ago that Bush gave everyone a scare after tweaking the injury during pre-game warm ups after being ruled active, so anything is a possibility up until tonight’s kick off.

The good news, however, is that tonight’s game will be taking place in the comfort of the Lions home dome, so Bush will not have to worry about the awful field conditions from Week 14 in Philadelphia.
