The Miami Dolphins will try to "shatter" the New York Jets playoff hopes this weekend and they'll have to do it without Reggie Bush. The Dolphins running back suffered a knee injury late last week against the New England Patriots and that will ultimately keep him out of the season finale.

Via Sun-Sentinel:

"He's not going to play," interim coach Todd Bowles said. "The knee hasn't been responding, so we're going to sit him down. ... I think he would be out earlier in the year, too. He's just not ready to play this game."

The Dolphins will look to rookie running back Daniel Thomas with Bush out.

Despite the injury, Bush ends the season on a high-note by rushing for over 100 yards in his last four games. On the season, he has 1,086 rushing yards on 216 carries.
