Reggie Bush expected to get his normal workload

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Lions close out Week 15 with a Monday night matchup against the Ravens and the expectation is that running back Reggie Bush will be a big part of their attempt to emerge with a win.

Bush was listed as questionable on the team’s final injury report last week and missed the Week 14 loss to the Eagles after aggravating a calf injury before the game, but it seems that he’s healed up well enough to get back on the field. After Bush returned to practice late in the week, word out of Detroit was that he should be in the lineup and Adam Schefter added to those reports on ESPN on Monday Schefter reported that the team expects Bush to handle his normal workload against Baltimore. Bush has averaged just under 20.5 touches a game this season.

Fantasy Impact: 

Bush has averaged just about 20 touches a game this season, so owners should expect that to continue Monday night. The Lions defense is banged up so the team could look to the offense to run the ball and take some time off the clock to take pressure off the D. Bush looks like a safe play, but it still wouldn't hurt to check our inactives before game time, which should be released shortly.
