We have some new information on the injury that forced Dolphins running back Reggie Bush to miss the second half of Sunday's win over the Jets. And it comes from the man himself. Bush said in a Tuesday radio interview that he has "just a bruise" on his left knee, and "I'm working to get back for this week."
It was reported earlier in the week that Bush might be able to play this week against the Cardinals. That seems to still be a possibility, but I remain skeptical. Bush has been one of the game's best running backs so far this year, but with capable players such as Daniel Thomas and Lamar Miller in tow, I don't think the Dolphins need to hasten Reggie's recovery, especially against a tough Arizona defense in the desert. Like I said yesterday, I would guess that Bush doesn't play this week and going off how the Dolphins used their backs without him in the Jets game, Thomas is looking like a low-end RB2 this week. We'll know a lot more if Bush practices on Thursday or Friday.
