Reggie Bush injury update: RB questionable, expected to be available for fantasy owners

The Lions running back is listed as questionable but is expected to suit up in Week 14. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush (calf) is listed as questionable but is expected to play in the team's Week 14 game against the Philadelphia Eagles, barring a setback. Bush practiced in full on Friday after being held out of practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Bush should start on Sunday and figures to be a high-upside play against the Eagles. Bush has turned in a fine season thus far in his first year with the Lions. He has topped the 100-yard rushing mark three times and has five touchdowns on the year. Bush has also proven to be a fine PPR asset, as he has 45 receptions on the year. The biggest concern about Bush is that he has lost three fumbles, all of which have come in the last five weeks. However, fumbles have never been a significant issue throughout his career and they don't present a situation to be overly concerned about.

Bush has a solid matchup in the Eagles, who have struggled to limit running backs all year. With his injury status no longer appearing to be in doubt, owners shouldn't hesitate to start him. He's a fine RB1 play.
