Allen Park, MI (SportsNetwork.com) – The Detroit Lions have listed leading
rusher Reggie Bush questionable for Monday’s game against Baltimore due to a
calf injury he aggravated prior to the team’s most recent outing.

Bush was active for last Sunday’s matchup at Philadelphia, but did not play
after slipping and falling on the ice-covered surface at Lincoln Financial
Field during warmups.

The versatile running back was held out of Thursday’s practice before
receiving limited reps in each of the last two days.

Bush has been having a very good first season in Detroit, with the ex-Miami
Dolphin having rushed for 854 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games and
adding another 448 yards and two scores on 45 receptions.

Star wide receiver Calvin Johnson is expected to play on Monday despite
missing some practice time this week with a minor knee problem. Detroit will
likely be down a pair of cornerbacks against the Ravens, however, with starter
Chris Houston and rookie Darius Slay both declared doubtful for the contest.

Houston did not practice at all this week as he battles a toe injury, while
Slay had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee earlier in the month.

The Lions have also termed defensive end Ezekial Ansah (shoulder) questionable
to face the Ravens.
