Reggie Bush injury update: Lions expect RB to play vs. Ravens

Detroit is desperate for a win, and expects to have its dual-threat in the backfield.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions are hopeful running back Reggie Bush will be able to play on Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens, according to Evan Silva.

Bush hurt his calf in warm-ups last week before the Lions lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in a winter wonderland. At 7-6, the Lions are trying to stay ahead of the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears, who have 7-6-1 and 8-6 marks respectively.

In his first year in the Motor City, Bush has been exactly what coach Jim Schwartz as hoping for. The former Heisman Trophy winner has 854 rushing yards and 448 receiving yards with five total touchdowns. With the opponent forced to focus on Calvin Johnson, Bush has been able to find open space consistently.

If the Lions win their remaining three games, they will be the NFC North winner and host at least one playoff game.
