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.

Fantasy Impact:

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.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12.

Cardinals RB Robert Hughes (hamstring, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch (back, probable) took full practice reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is probable for Week 12. Lynch is good to go for a tough matchup with the Cardinals, though he typically runs very well in Seattle.

Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald (knee, questionable) missed practice all week and is questionable for Week 12. Fitzgerald hopes to play through the sprain, though HC Bruce Arians called him “iffy” for Week 12. He’ll be a game-time decision. The Cardinals play late on Sunday, so he won’t be an attractive start, especially in a bad matchup with the Seahawks. In fact, we’re not all that excited about Michael Floyd or John Brown even if Fitz is out.

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (hip, foot) took limited practice reps again Thursday. Ellington will be fine for a tough matchup against the Seahawks.

Larry Fitzgerald expects to play through MCL sprain

Cards WR Larry Fitzgerald has a grade 2 MCL sprain. Expects to play vs. Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact:

It's a big relief to the Cards. Fitzgerald was able to finish the game, yet the team has to be relieved the MRI results indicate it wasn’t serious. A grade 2 sprain is on a scale from 1-3. Most medical web sites say a grade 2 is a severe sprain or partial tear. Initial reports on Darren Sproles said he had a partial tear and he ended up missing a game along with a bye week. If Fitz is the one who said he will play, we'll have to at least wait and see how he progresses this week, as players are often too optimistic about their statuses. John Brown could see a bump in snaps if Fitzgerald were to miss a game or two.

Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald had to leave Sunday’s win over the Lions briefly because of an injury to his left knee.

Fitzgerald departed before halftime, but played in the second half and came up with a key third down catch late in the game to help ice Arizona’s ninth victory of the season. He’s still going to go get an MRI to make sure that there’s no serious damage lurking underneath the surface, although neither he nor coach Bruce Arians appeared to be overly concerned.

Lions RB Theo Riddick still remains firmly behind Reggie Bush and Joique Bell in the tailback hierarchy, and played just seven snaps last week against Miami.

Fantasy Impact:

Riddick could play a bigger role Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, with Bush limited by an ankle injury. He looks to be a good handcuff for both Bell and Bush owners, especially in PPR leagues.

Friday, November 14, 2014, 6:06pm

Cardinals RB Andre Ellington (foot, hip, probable) took limited practice reps all week and is probable for Week 11. Ellington’s injury won’t cause him to miss a tough matchup with the Lions.

Friday, November 14, 2014, 6:06pm

Cardinals RB Stepfan Taylor (calf, probable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is probable for Week 11. He should resume his role as the primary backup to Andre Ellington.
