Reggie Bush Injury: Dolphins RB Avoids Serious Knee Damage

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush injured his left knee in the second quarter of Sunday's game with the New York Jets and wasn't able to return to the game. According to the Palm Beach Post, the knee injury is "nothing season-ending" but will likely force the running back to miss a few more weeks of action.

Bush has a history of injury in that knee, as he tore his PCL in 2007, then both sprained his MCL and tore the meniscus in 2008.

Bush had been the focal point of the Miami ground game in 2012, and was the AFC's offensive player of the week for Week 2. Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller will be asked to pick up the slack in his absence. Both Thomas and Miller showed some good things on Sunday during the second half of play. The pair combined for 117 yards on the ground against the Jets.

Reggie Bush Injury: Dolphins RB Hurts Left Knee, Leaves Game

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush suffered an apparent left knee injury Sunday in the second quarter against the New York Jets.

His status to return is unclear. Trainers examined his left leg before he limped off the field.

Bush had 10 carries for 61 yards in the first half against the Jets. His 26-yard rush in the first quarter set up the Dolphins' only touchdown of the half.

This is Bush's seventh season in the NFL and second with the Dolphins. Bush has always seemed prone to injuries; he hasn't played all 16 games in a season since he was a rookie for the New Orleans Saints in 2006.

If Bush were unable to return Sunday, running back Daniel Thomas would likely be deflected the majority of the rushing attempts. Thomas, a 6-1, 233-pound back, had eight rushes for 30 yards and a touchdown in the first half Sunday.
