Reggie Bush injury update: Fantasy owners shouldn't panic

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Reggie Bush had a small injury on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Lions running back Reggie Bush (finger, groin, knee) is listed as probable to face the Cardinals on Sunday. He didn't miss any practice all week and will play.

Except for LeSean McCoy, no back had a bigger splash in Week 1. Bush put up 90 rushing yards along with 101 receiving yards and a score against the Vikings during a victory. Although he had to leave the game a couple times due to injury, he was able to return. While he used to have questionable durability, he's missed just one game in his last two seasons with the Dolphins. He has a chance to put up massive stats with his new team.

Fantasy impact: If you're in a PPR league, it's not crazy to think that Bush is a top-five back at 100 percent. The Lions are going to score a lot of points and he still put up a massive Week 1 even with Joique Bell scoring two TDs. Bush is going to get the ball a lot in space, so he could be more likely to get hurt. Bell has to be owned in all leagues and could be a low-end flex while Bush is active, and there's no way anyone can even consider benching Bush this week.
