San Francisco 49ers RB Reggie Bush still has the ability to be an every-down back, according to head coach Jim Tomsula. Tomsula said Bush is not a gadget player but does have the skill set to help on third downs.
Huddle Up: Bush isn't going to be the Niners' main rushing back with second-year RB Carlos Hyde topping the depth chart, and look for him to still see roughly a third of his touches via receptions.

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) has reached an agreement with the San Francisco 49ers Saturday, March 14, according to sources.
Huddle Up: Bush has demonstrated he can't be a lead back in the NFL, but he still has the skill to be a complementary back. He offers an alternative to Carlos Hyde in the San Francisco backfield and should see plenty of third-down work as well.

Free-agent RB Reggie Bush (Lions) is not getting any interest from the New York Giants, according to a league source.
Huddle Up: The Giants appear content with Rashad Jennings and second-year back Andre Williams for now, leaving Bush to look elsewhere for his new team.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush has been cut Wednesday, Feb. 25.
Huddle Up: This isn't much of a surprise, as rumors have been circulating. It certainly improves the fantasy prospects of Joique Bell and makes Theo Riddick and maybe George Winn a bit more attractive. But it also likely means the Lions will be looking for a complimentary back in the draft as well. As for Bush, he still has something in the tank but it's tough to see him finding another opportunity with as much fantasy upside as his previous gig at this juncture in his career.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush's status is still uncertain at this point in the offseason, according to general manager Martin Mayhew. There is speculation that Bush may be asked to take a pay cut or be released.
Huddle Up: The Lions have a couple of defensive linemen they'd like to re-sign, and with Joique Bell playing as well as he has the Lions can view Bush as more of a luxury item than a must-have.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush is under contract for the 2015 season, but neither head coach Jim Caldwell nor general manager Martin Mayhew would commit to bringing Bush back after an injury-riddled 2014 season.
Huddle Up: After piling up a career-high 1,512 yards from scrimmage in 14 games with the Lions in 2013, Bush had only 116 touches for 550 yards and two scores in 11 games -- four of which featured 10 or fewer touches -- this past season and it might be the end of the line for the soon-to-be-30-year-old RB in Motown as the Lions could either draft or sign another (cheaper/younger/more dependable) RB to pair with Joique Bell.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) and the coaching staff believe that he can return to form and be one of the most dangerous weapons out of the backfield. Bush has missed five games because of injuries this year, and he had just 12 touches for 34 total yards in Week 14 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. RB Theo Riddick didn't play at all, but offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi said that was a one-game anomaly.
Huddle Up: It's been a lost year for Bush, and it's going be tough for the RB to come close to re-gaining his form given the limited time left in the season. Joique Bell remains the only starting choice among the Detroit backs.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) said he is '100 percent healthy' and will play against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday, Dec. 7.
Huddle Up: Bush's optimism has fallen short of reality in recent weeks, but it looks like he may indeed return Sunday after a three-game absence, and coach Jim Caldwell has said he'll regain his starting role. Joique Bell will still get his share of touches, but his workload will obviously take a hit -- at least until Bush gets hurt again.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) has been doing some work in practice and is expected to play Sunday, Dec. 7, for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Bush would resume a complementary role to Joique Bell and take touches away from Theo Riddick. At this juncture, however, it would be difficult to bank on him for anything in the way of fantasy productivity.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is out for Week 13 Thursday, Nov. 27. His ankle isn't responding well enough, but the hope is to return for Week 14.
Huddle Up: Bush will miss his third straight game and his fifth in the last seven, boosting Theo Riddick's Turkey Day value.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice for the third straight day Wednesday, Nov. 26, and is questionable for Week 13 against the Chicago Bears.
Huddle Up: It's been a questionable season to be sure for Bush, and it looks like it'll come down to another game-time decision.

Posted: 11/26/2014 12:34am et
Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle, back) was limited in practice Tuesday, Nov. 25, with a back injury added to his status. Bush missed the last two games with an ankle injury. There was no further information on his back ailment.
Huddle Up: Yikes -- this sounds rather grim for the RB, who's missed three of the last four -- and five games in all -- this season. Keep an eye out for further updates, but don't expect the news to be promising.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he'll be ready to play Thursday, Nov. 27, after missing Week 12 with an ankle injury.
Huddle Up: We've certainly heard this before, and it's hard to trust Bush even if he does play given what's looking to be an injury that will linger the rest of the season.

Posted: 11/24/2014 8:29pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) would've been limited at practice Monday, Nov. 24 if the team had worked out.
Huddle Up: It's fast becoming a lost season for Bush, who has missed four of the last six games and will be trying to come back on a short week with the Lions opening the 3-game Thanksgiving slate. It's a good matchup with the Bears, and Theo Riddick could be an option if he's still available in your league.

Posted: 11/22/2014 5:59pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is likely out for Week 12 and is targeting the Thanksgiving Day game Thursday, Nov. 27, to return.
Huddle Up: Joique Bell will start and is a RB2 this week. Theo Riddick will also see some time as a pass catcher. He'll be an RB3/flex play against the Patriots.

Posted: 11/17/2014 7:59pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush said he will return this week from the ankle injury that sidelined him last week. Bush said he hopes the week off will enable him to stay healthy the rest of the season.
Huddle Up: Bush has played in every other game since Week 5, and he'll play Sunday in New England if the pattern holds. Bush, though, has hardly been productive in his last 3 games with only 43 rushing yards and 57 receiving yards over that span so use him with caution.

Posted: 11/15/2014 10:10pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) will be held out of the game Sunday, Nov. 16, in Week 11. RBs Joique Bell and Theo Riddick will split time in the backfield.
Huddle Up: Bell will be a RB2 against the Cardinals this week, while Riddick will be a desperation flex play in PPR leagues.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed his third straight practice Friday, Nov. 14.
Huddle Up: Yeah, it's time to get another RB in your lineup as Bush looks like he'll miss his third game in the Lions' last five.

Posted: 11/13/2014 4:23pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed a second straight practice Thursday. Nov. 13 and could sit out in Week 11 against the Arizona Cardinals, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.
Huddle Up: Hey, that would fit the pattern as Bush has missed every other game since Week 5.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush played just 19 offensive snaps Sunday, Nov. 9, which was 28 percent of the offense. In contrast, RB Joique Bell played 67 percent of the snaps and RB Theo Riddick played 10 percent of the snaps.
Huddle Up: The ankle issue certainly appears to still be hampering Bush, who had missed two of the Lions' previous three games. He was in and out of the lineup Sunday and finished with only five touches to Bell's 12. Riddick also had five touches and scored the Lions' game-winning TD on a reception. Bush definitely belongs on the fantasy bench until he starts seeing more work.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) practiced in full for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 6.
Huddle Up: Signs are pointing toward an up week -- as in he'll likely play -- for the up-and-down Bush following the Lions' Week 9 bye.

Posted: 11/3/2014 11:00pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) participated in practice Monday, Nov. 3.
Huddle Up: It'll be another week of monitoring practice reports for Bush's fantasy owners with the RB having missed 2 of the last 3 games prior to the Lions' Week 9 bye.

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is expected to be inactive for the Week 9 game against the Atlanta Falcons in London, according to a source Friday, Oct. 24.
Huddle Up: With Bush out, Joique Bell will carry the load for the Lions against a struggling Atlanta defense. Bell is a strong RB2 this week.

Posted: 10/24/2014 10:57am et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) missed practice Friday, Oct. 24, but said he will play in Week 8 Sunday, Oct. 26.
Huddle Up: While Bush may be available for the Lions, expect Joique Bell to be Detroit's primary back. And after watching Reggie leave the Lions' last game due to injury it may be tough for fantasy owners to bank on him sticking around long enough to be a fantasy factor here.

Posted: 10/23/2014 2:36pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is not practicing Thursday, Oct. 23.
Huddle Up: The red flags continue to fly for Bush, who looks to be headed in the wrong direction after at least getting in limited work Wednesday. He still may play Sunday but be very wary of starting him.

Posted: 10/22/2014 3:43pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 22.
Huddle Up: The lingering ankle issue is proving rather troublesome for Bush, who's only totaled 69 rushing yards and 71 receiving yards with no scores over the Lions' last 4 games -- one of which he missed entirely. He should play Sunday, but definitely temper your fantasy expectations.

Posted: 10/20/2014 10:44am et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) was not benched in the Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints. Bush only played a handful of snaps in the second half in favor of RB Joique Bell because his ankle was bothering him, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.
Huddle Up: The Lions have a stable of backs they've needed to shuffle around due to nagging injuries, with Bell seeing the bulk of the work and Bush missing the bulk of the time. No word on if the injury will keep him out of next week's game; he'll likely miss some practice time and his fantasy owners will need to get up early on Sunday for the morning game to see if he'll be in the lineup.

Posted: 10/17/2014 6:33pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) fully participated in practiced Friday, Oct. 17, and is probable for the team's Week 7 game.
Huddle Up: As promised, Bush will return to action Sunday and give the Lions a needed big-play threat in the continued absence of Calvin Johnson.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) is participating in practice Wednesday, Oct. 15.
Huddle Up: The week is off to a good start for Bush, who has said he will return to action Sunday after sitting out the Week 6 win in Minnesota.

Posted: 10/10/2014 4:13pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he will test his ankle sprain this weekend, but he will not push to play in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings if he's not ready. Bush learned from WR Calvin Johnson's (ankle) situation when he aggravated the injury last week trying to play on it. 'I'm going to weigh all options and see how we feel on Sunday and if I can go, I'm going to go, but I'm only going to go out there if I feel like I can be myself,' Bush said. he said he's been improving daily, but he didn't practice all week.
Huddle Up: With a third missed practice Friday and the comparisons to Johnson's injury, it's certainly not looking good for Bush. Joique Bell, meanwhile, is feeling good after sitting out Week 5 with a concussion, and looks to be in line for the Lions' share of the work Sunday in Minneapolis.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 9.
Huddle Up: Bush hasn't practiced all week but is telling reporters his ankle is fine. What transpires Friday in practice will speak the loudest.

Posted: 10/6/2014 7:58pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (ankle) said he is day-to-day and will do what he can to be on the field for Week 6. He said he is not sure how he suffered the injury. He underwent an MRI on the ankle and is waiting for the results.
Huddle Up: The Lions and ankle issues aren't exactly compatible these days, and Bush was limited to 43 yards on 8 touches Sunday in game where the Joique Bell-less Lions certainly could've used more of his services. It's somewhat scary that Bush doesn't know how or when the injury occurred, but check the status reports to see if it's anything that might linger.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was able to play in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers, but he had just six runs for 26 yards and two receptions for six yards. It appears the team is trying to spread the reps among its backs and trying to limit the wear and tear on Bush's body at the same time.
Huddle Up: Joique Bell paced the Lions' backfield in touches, though neither was particularly effective against a stout Panthers D. Going forward this backfield appears to be taking on many of the traits that OC Joe Lombardi's former team, the Saints, exhibited--and for fantasy purposes that's going to be frustrating.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush (knee) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 11.
Huddle Up: Despite Wednesday's ice-pack reports, Bush has participated in both Lions' workouts this week and looks like he'll be a full-go against the formidable Panthers' D this Sunday.

Posted: 8/26/2014 11:55pm et
Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush will probably sit out the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, as head coach Jim Caldwell plans to give his veterans some extra rest.
Huddle Up: Bush, who is currently the 16th RB being drafted, showed he was ready for the games that matter with an 86-yard scoring sprint in the exhibition win over the Jaguars last Friday night.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush is 29 years old and about to enter his ninth NFL season, but he does not feel old and wants to play many more years. 'I don't want to put a timetable on it because I don't know,' Bush said. 'I don't know if it's five (years), four, three, six. I'm not sure. But I know if I get to 15 that'll be a blessing.' The coaching staff has done a careful job of managing his repetitions, with several other viable running backs to help shoulder the load, according to running backs coach Curtis Modkins.
Huddle Up: The Lions do have a stable of backs so they don't need to overwork Bush in the preseason. That might also cost him a few looks on game day, but not to the point he won't still be an effective football player--both for the Lions and for fantasy owners.

Detroit Lions RB Reggie Bush would like to extend his playing career past the 2016 season, and he would like to retire in Detroit if at all possible. "I don't want to bounce around from city to city, from team to team. I think I have something good going here, have been really getting to know the city over the past year and just really looking forward to bringing a championship here someday and making history," Bush said.
Huddle Up: Something to keep in mind if you're holding Bush in a dynasty league. The fast track and Detroit's passing offense are good fits for Bush's skill set, and if he's able to stay healthy and stick around for a few more years in Detroit he'll continue to be a solid fantasy contributor.
