NFL news roundup: Reggie Bush uncertain, Duane Brown ruled out, and more

Jennifer Hilderbrand-USA TODAY S

With one day to go before Sunday's games, we got some more clarity on injury news. Here are the big headlines from Saturday.

The Detroit Lions may hold running back Reggie Bush out for Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins. He practiced on Friday and is optimistic about suiting up, but the Lions may end up playing it safe with their big free-agent acquisition.

Here are some other headlines around the NFL on Saturday.

Duane Brown injury: Texans LT ruled out for Sunday's game

Houston Texans left tackle Duane Brown has been officially ruled out for Week 3. Brown is dealing with a severe case of turf toe and hasn't practiced this week, wearing a walking boot. The Texans have no timetable for his return. It's a massive blow to their offensive line. Ryan Harris is getting the start on Sunday and will have an unenviable matchup against Terrell Suggs.

Anthony Spencer injury: Cowboys DE game-time decision Sunday

Dallas Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer will be a game-time decision for Sunday's game. Spencer missed most of training camp with a knee surgery and sat out in Week 1. He returned for last week's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, but saw limited snaps and missed practice this week. George Selvie will get the start if Spencer isn't ready to go.

Browns will use 'running back by committee'

The Cleveland Browns will resort to using a rotation at running back after trading Trent Richardson to the Indianapolis Colts. They signed Willis McGahee off the street on Friday, but will be using him, Chris Ogbonnaya and Bobby Rainey in a committee. McGahee is 32 years old and coming off a major knee injury. He didn't have a training camp after being released by the Denver Broncos in June.

Buccaneers release RB Peyton Hillis

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have released running back Peyton Hillis. Hillis fell to fourth on the depth chart and didn't play a single snap in the first two games, being inactive for Week 2. Hillis hasn't been the same since his breakout 2010 season that got him on the Madden cover. The Bucs were his third team in as many years. Tampa Bay will move forward with Doug Martin, Brian Leonard and Mike James on the depth chart.
