Bush's knee injury not serious
Lions RB could play this week
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush did not seriously injure his left knee when it collided with the helmet of Arizona Cardinals safety Tony Jefferson in the second quarter on Sunday.
ESPN reported Monday that Bush could be available to play this week against the Washington Redskins.
Bush had an MRI taken after the 25-21 loss.
Lions coach Jim Schwartz said Bush's knee is sore.
"The tests today were encouraging," he said. "He's going to be sore but he doesn't have anything that is going to be long term."
After the hit, Bush clutched the knee as he fell to the ground before leaving the game. He returned briefly in the third quarter but exited for good after he fumbled. He had nine rushes for 25 yards and three catches for 44 yards.
"I was able to go back in the game, but I wasn't myself," Bush said after the game. "I probably shouldn't have gone back in. But I went back in and tried to give it a shot. Felt like I could still go, but I wasn't myself.
"We'll see what happens this week, I'm not sure. I don't think it's anything serious."
In the season opener against the Minnesota Vikings, Bush dislocated a thumb and pulled his groin.
