Dolphins RB Reggie Bush says he has knee bruise

We have some new information on the injury that forced Dolphins running back Reggie Bush @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."

Fantasy Analysis:

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 @millertime_6 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.

I would sit Bush this weekend to ensure he's recovered completely. I have Bush as my main RB in my fantasy football league.

Well, if Bush plays, he needs to be in your lineup unless you are stocked at RB.
