Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush continues to battle an ankle injury leading up to Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Lions rank 31st with an average of 82.4 rushing yards per game, fewer than any other team except the winless Oakland Raiders.
Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford’s job might not be any easier this week than it was last week.
“I’m guessing it’s not a coincidence,” Bush said with a laugh. “It’s not a coincidence at all.
“I’m playing this week,” Bush told Stoney, Bill and Sara of 97.1 The Ticket on Wednesday. “Everything’s good.”
After six weeks, the Lions rank 27th in points per game (19.3) and 23rd in yards per game (330.2).
“Once I got to the locker room, I kind of remember some stuff,” Bell said. “[On the sideline] I didn’t remember everything, though. I can’t remember what I couldn’t remember, but by the time I got in I remembered just about everything.”
Injuries took a toll on the running game last week, Bell out with a concussion and Riddick sidelined by a hamstring issue.
George Winn could be getting more help in the running game this week.
Stafford completed 18 of 31 passes, had to scramble frequently, threw an interception and took six sacks.
