It is looking as if Reggie Busch will not play in Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. The teams website and ESPN’s Ed Werder are both reporting the running back as unlikely.

Bush has been dealing with an ankle injury for over a month and the Lions want him to get healthy for the stretch run. Not having Bush should not affect the Lions too much as Joique Bell will again start and be fed the ball.

Theo Riddick will continue to fill in for Bush in the passing game.

In his seven games this season Bush has totaled 191 yards rushing with 3.6 yards per carry and a touchdown. He has 26 receptions for 169 yards.
