Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush said he played most of 2012 with a fractured bone in his right shoulder, but he says he is fully healed from both rib and shoulder injuries he dealt with last season. His role in the team's offense is undefined this offseason under new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman.
Huddle Up: Bush appears to be ready to go; as for his undefined role with the team, Matt Forte's dismal history at the stripe and Trestman's penchant for handing goal-line carries to someone other than his feature back suggest Bush is slated for plenty of short-yardage and goal line work this season.

The Chicago Bears are considering putting RB Michael Bush on Injured Reserve.
Huddle Up: Bush is battling sore ribs which could put him on the shelf for the season. More carries for Matt Forte, though the Bears are also looking into bringing back Kahlil Bell.

Chicago Bears RB Michael Bush (ribs), LB Geno Hayes (knee) and DT Matt Toeaina (knee) were limited in practice Friday, Dec. 14, and are questionable for Week 15.
Huddle Up: Bush only had 1 carry for 6 yards last week before taking a shot to the ribs and leaving the game, so even if he is active Sunday, how much can you really count on him?
