Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush told reporters on Wednesday that he is not 100 percent healthy from a knee injury suffered a few weeks ago. Bush has not missed any game time but he has slowed down after a very hot start to the season. Bush appears to have missed practice but doesn't sound like he's in danger of missing this weeks game against the Rams, the 18th- ranked run defense.
Fantasy Take: Hopefully the rest does Bush well because he was tearing it up tearing it up to start the year and looks to be on his way to living up to his draft status. It reminds me a little bit of Marshall Faulk, who was also drafted second overall and also underwhelmed in his first stop. Faulk averaged 3.8 yards per carry with the Colts in five seasons and then 5.4 yards per carry during his first three seasons in St. Louis. I'm not saying that Bush is going to enter the Hall of Fame like Faulk, but he can be a top back in his prime.
