Admittedly, Reggie Bush felt some relief after finishing Thursday night’s game free of injury.
“Finally,” the 30-year-old running back told reporters on Tuesday.
Bush has dealt with a nagging calf strain since the first quarter of the San Francisco 49ers Week 1 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The injury limited Bush to just four carries and one reception through the first six weeks of the season.
“It’s been frustrating, obviously,” Bush said. “Not being out there on the football field and dealing with the calf muscle. Just working through constant rehab and wanting to be out there – it’s been definitely tough. I was just excited to be out there and be healthy.”
Against the Seattle Seahawks, Bush ran the ball four times for 21 yards and caught three passes for 13 yards. The most important development of the game, however, was how his calf responded to the workload.
Bush had previously attempted a return to game action, but he aggravated the injury in New York and was forced to sit out the following week versus the Baltimore Ravens. Bush was encouraged by his performance overall, the story said.
