Michael Bush playing through shoulder injury, fantasy owners beware

US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Michael Bush and the Bears may be hiding a significant shoulder injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush may have a more serious injury than the team is letting on. According to Vaughn McClure of the Chicago Tribune, Bush has been playing through a shoulder injury "that might be significant". Bush sat out most of the 4th quarter last week against the Rams, but insists he is just fine and the team has not put him on any injury reports.

Fantasy Impact: If you're wondering why the Bears are so eager to get Matt Forte (ankle) back sooner than expected, this would explain a lot. Bush was clearly not himself last week, and with Forte expected to be active and starting Monday night against the Cowboys, don't be surprised if Bush is a last-minute scratch. We'll know more in a couple hours.
