NFL injury report 2013: Banged-up Reggie Bush makes most of Lions debut

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC North's four teams made it through Week 1 without suffering any new injuries for the most part.

New Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush put up 191 yards of total offense in the season-opening win over the Minnesota Vikings, a feat made more impressive considering all that was weighing him down throughout the game.

He suffered a dislocated thumb and a pulled groin in the first half, and he had a sore hip and also appeared to bang his left knee in the second half, Sean Yuille of Pride of Detroit said Sunday. Yuille remained positive despite the developments.

They need Bush to stay healthy, and he can't be suffering multiple injuries each week if he's going to make it through the year.

On the other hand, imagine what Bush can do in this offense when he is fully healthy. He was the most explosive player on the field for the Lions against the Minnesota Vikings, and he put up nearly 200 total yards despite being pretty banged up. I'm going to take that as a mostly positive sign going forward.

Bush played through the pain all the way through to a 34-24 win, but it's unclear if any of the injuries will hamper him moving forward.

Other than Bush's travails throughout Week 1, none of the other three teams in the NFC North suffered any new injuries of note. Minnesota didn't sustain any injuries during its loss to Detroit. The Bears made it through a 24-21 win over the Cincinnati Bengals relatively unscathed, as did the Packers in a 34-28 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
