Lions RB Reggie Bush is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, and says he'll be a game-time decision. But even if he plays, he likely won't shoulder his usual load after missing the entire week of practice with a sprained ankle.
Joique Bell and Theo Riddick figure to have greater roles against Minnesota with Bush ailing.
Bell is coming back from an injury of his own, after sustaining a concussion two weeks ago against the New York Jets. He says he's 100 percent and capable of doing whatever Detroit asks of him. We think the presence of Riddick keeps Bell from an RB1 day but he's still shaping up to be a good start this week. Even if Bush plays, it sounds like Bell will still have a significant role.
