One of the biggest question marks about tonight’s Monday Night Football matchup tonight was the status of Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush. Fantasy owners in particular were wondering if Bush would be suiting up tonight as he has a ‘questionable’ tag attached to him all weekend long, but according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Bush is officially active tonight.

There’s still the question of how active Bush actually will be as his calf has obviously been causing issues all week long. But with Bush active for the game, one can only assume that he’ll be handling his normal workload. This is good news for fantasy owners of Bush as the running back is much better at home inside the controlled environment of Ford Field than he is on the road.
The Raven run defense is still one of the league’s best but Bush is active and he’s lethal in the passing game, which means he’s a start tonight if you own him in fantasy. How well he does is yet to be seen but the upside is there and the workload looks to be as well.
