Reggie Bush misses another practice, fantasy status looking grim

Bush missed his second straight practice and his Week 11 status is doubtful. We break down the fantasy implications.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush was held out of practice again on Thursday. It's the second straight day he has missed practice and Bush is now unlikely to suit up for the team's Week 11 game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.

Bush tweaked his bothersome ankle in Detroit's Week 10 win over the Miami Dolphins. He's been dealing with the ankle injury for almost a month and hasn't been close to 100 percent since September. The Lions are leaning towards giving him the week off. If Bush sits, Theo Riddick will fill the role as the pass-catching back, with Joique Bell handling early-down carries.

Fantasy impact: Bush's disappointing season continues to slog along. He has reached double-digit fantasy points only once in 2014 and really shouldn't be owned in 10-team leagues anymore. Riddick has shown some potential, but with the Lions' offensive line also banged up, neither he nor Bell are recommended starts against the Cardinals' stingy run defense.
