Miami RB Reggie Bush not only played with a banged up knee, but did so relatively well. Bush, a question mark all week, got the start and rushed for 67 yards on 17 carries.
Before the game, Bush went through a series of tests, overseen by coach Joe Philbin, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman and general manager Jeff Ireland. While Bush was cleared to play, the Dolphins appeared to have him on a pitch count, spreading out the carries with Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller.
The Dolphins’ run game struggled overall. Miami gained 86 yards on 29 carries — a 3.0 average.
When the Dolphins needed a tough yard, they went to Jorvorskie Lane — and not Daniel Thomas.
And poor execution by Ryan Tannehill on a pitch play all but wrecked a drive early in the fourth quarter. Tannehill missed Bush on the toss, resulting in a loss of 9 yards.
The "pitch count" isn't a surprise since he was a game-time call all week. So, he was a risky option for a fantasy lineup, but posted pretty decent numbers all things considered. Next week, Bush and company take on the Jags and one would think Bush gets a bigger workload - as long as he escaped the game is good shape and it appears he has.
