Reggie Bush banged up after Week 1 - [Full Article]

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush put together a monster performance in the team's season-opening victory over the Minnesota Vikings, but he finished the contest a little worse for wear.

In the first quarter of Sunday's 34-24 win, Bush suffered injuries to his thumb and groin.

Trying to haul in a low pass from quarterback Matthew Stafford on a 3rd-and-1 play in the red zone, Bush's thumb was dislocated.

The next offensive series, Bush suffered another injury, this time tweaking his groin.

Fantasy Impact: 

Bush said he felt great after the game, despite saying his thumb was "facing the wrong direction." It could be a different story in a day or two when the pain killers wear off. However, it was a good sign he came back and it looks like he'll be fine for Week 2 at Arizona. Bush went over 100 yards receiving with a TD and added 90 rushing yards.
