Reggie Bush injury update: RB probable, will be available for fantasy owners

Jonathan Daniel

The Lions running back sat out practice on Friday but is listed as probable and will play in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush (knee) is listed as probable and will start in the team's Week 11 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Bush sat out practice on Friday but is in no danger of missing time on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Reggie Bush will be all systems go in Week 11 and has a fine matchup in the Steelers. Bush has turned in a solid campaign in his first year with the Lions and is on pace for about 1,170 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. Bush has also been his old self from a PPR perspective and has 34 catches on the season. Averaging 4.7 yards per carry, Bush makes for a strong start against Pittsburgh.

Fantasy owners should start Bush with confidence. Backup Joique Bell will be in the mix but shouldn't siphon a significant number of carries from Bush. Three of Bell's four touchdowns came in the first three weeks and he has also lost two fumbles, one coming last week. Bush will be a high-end RB1 and should reward fantasy owners with the production they've come to expect from him.
