A lingering ankle injury caused Lions running back Reggie Bush to miss last Sunday’s loss in Arizona. He’s currently expected to miss Sunday’s game at New England.
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Bush intends to return on Thanksgiving, when the Lions host the Bears.
Bush practiced all week on a limited basis, fueling optimism that he’ll help pump up an offense that mustered only six points against the Cardinals. Officially questionable for Sunday, it’s looking like he won’t be ready to go until Thursday.
If Bush does in fact miss Week 12, it looks like Joique Bell will carry the load again with Theo Riddick chipping in, perhaps especially in the passing game. It makes sense the team holds Bush out since it's going to be a short turnaround for a Thursday game. It's a decent enough matchup for Bell and Riddick owners as the Pats are 18th in allowing fantasy points to RBs.
