Reggie Bush injury: Lions RB leaves with knee injury

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions could be without one of their primary offensive weapons in the second half.

Reggie Bush left the field Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals with an apparent knee injury. His return to the game is listed as questionable, with reports that he will attempt to re-enter the game after putting a sleeve on his leg.

With just over five minutes remaining in the first half, Bush was hit in the knee by Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson and began clutching his leg. The Detroit Lions running back carried the ball seven times for 18 yards leading up to the injury, catching another three passes for 44 yards.


Bush was signed this offseason to diversify the Lions' offense. The dual-threat running back has been a huge boost to Detroit's offense as he's taken pressure off wide receiver Calvin Johnson, who too often was relied on as the team's only offensive threat. This was apparent right away last week when Bush accounted for over 190 all-purpose yards against the Minnesota Vikings.
