Lions’ Bush on track to return

Updated: September 26, 2013

Allen Park, MI (Sports Network) – Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush put
in a second consecutive full practice on Thursday, increasing his likelihood
of playing in Sunday’s game against NFC North rival Chicago.

Bush was inactive for the Lions’ 27-20 Week 3 victory at Washington due to a
bruised left knee the versatile veteran sustained in a loss at Arizona the
previous Sunday.

The eighth-year pro, who signed with Detroit as a free agent during the
offseason, totaled 191 yards from scrimmage and had a 77-yard touchdown catch
in his Lions’ debut in Week 1, a 34-24 home win over Minnesota.

Bush will likely share time with Joique Bell, who put up 132 yards from
scrimmage with a touchdown against the Redskins, if he’s active on Sunday.

Three other Lions, most notably star wide receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), were
limited participants in Thursday’s practice after sitting out Wednesday’s
session. Safety Louis Delmas (knee) and left guard Rob Sims (shoulder) also
got in some work.

The only Detroit player absent from Thursday’s workout was wide receiver Nate
Burleson, who is expected to miss between 6-to-8 weeks after fracturing his
arm in a car accident earlier in the week.
