Lions RB Reggie Bush said he expects to be available next week when the New Orleans Saints visit Ford Field.
"Next week for sure," Bush said. "100 percent."
Bush suffered an ankle injury last week against the Bills and did not dress for Sunday's 17-3 win at TCF Bank Stadium against the Vikings. It was the third game he's missed due to injury since signing with Detroit last year.
If we can trust Bush, it means he'll be back to split work with Joique Bell in Week 7 against the Saints. Bell rushed for 74 yards and added a TD and Theo Riddick did his damage in the passing game adding a long receiving TD. Riddick was also injured but is expected back in Week 7 as well, but would likely take a backseat to Bush if he in fact does play.
