REPORTS: Reggie Bush Injury Not Serious
By on September 24, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Late in the second quarter of Sunday’s 23-20 loss to the New York Jets, Dolphins running back Reggie Bush sustained a helmet to his left knee, forcing him to leave the game.

Though it appeared he was trying to loosen up on the sideline early in the second half, Bush, of course, could not return, raising questions of the severity of the injury. The long-term prognosis, however, appears to be positive.

Earlier today, both the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that not only did Bush avoid any serious damage, but he also may not miss any time at all.


From his personal Twitter account, Bush echoed those sentiments.

The team will not likely comment on Bush’s status for this week’s game against Arizona until the release of Wednesday’s post-practice injury report. If he’s able to practice–even in a limited capacity–it could give a good indication of whether he’s on track to play.

If he makes it back for Sunday’s game, Bush will face a Cardinals defense that’s surrendering a league-best 13.3 points per game.

    I blame the coaches.. I have no idea why they were running when they would get the ball in the 2nd half (with the lead!). I’m not even going into the timeouts at the end of the quarter for no reason whatsoever

    dolfaninnj u are correct sir. absolutely ridiculous to give him meaningless carries when a kneel down would have better. I mean lets face it this offense is so far from running a 90 second drill because their passing game is extremely limited…WTF were they trying to prove? I know what Sherman helmsley was trying to prove when he benched Lamar Miller after he screwed up a handoff…funny he didn;t bench Tanneyhill from his poor pic6 and why should he bench either? Lamar made run after run and on both field goal situations Sherman decides to pass 3 times in a row gaining us not a single yard…bad coaching cost us that game MORE than Carpenter..(who should be cut in my opinion there are plenty of mediocre kickers looking for work)
