Dolphins coach Joe Philbin didn’t want to call the stapling of running back Reggie Bush to the sideline for the last 23:23 of Sunday’s first half a “benching.” But Bush did.
And Bush said he agreed with it.
“I didn’t deserve to be back in there,” Bush said. “I fumbled the ball and I’ve had two fumbles lost this year. I have to do a better job of protecting the ball. I’ve been in this league long enough to know protecting the ball is the most important thing as a running back.”
Bush came back in the second half but the Titans were up 31-3. Bush finished with 21 yards on four carries and one catch for 8 yards. Philbin added that the 'Fins play again Thursday and he wanted to see spread the ball around to RBs Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller. It appears Bush is officially in a committee.
