Reggie Bush gave a few fantasy football owners a scare on Sunday.
The Detroit Lions‘ running back limped off of the field in the second quarter of Sunday’s game after taking an Arizona Cardinals‘ helmet to his left knee. Given Bush’s injury-riddled past, it was understandable for fantasy football owners with Bush on their roster to be a little nervous. Thankfully, Bush would return prior to halftime, so the injury was obviously not that serious.
Even still, the Bush owners of the world should get used to such injury worries. Although Bush has only missed one game in the last two years, he was on the sideline for eight games back in 2010 and has missed 21 games in his career. Not to mention, Bush is currently playing in his eighth NFL season, which is about the time that running backs in the league start to wear out. Keep in mind that Bush is the oldest starting back in the NFC North.
Don’t get me wrong, though; when healthy Bush is a fantasy football must-have considering his status as the Lions’ go-to back allows him to be featured in both running and passing formations.
Nonetheless, Bush appears to be healthy after the scare on Sunday, so stay tuned to see if these injury question marks linger from week to week or if the Lions continue to make Bush one of the most versatile running backs in the game.
