Lions running back Reggie Bush (knee) missed Detroit's Week 3 win over the Redskins, but Thursday marked his second straight day of practicingaccording to Dave Birkett on Twitter, and he looks very good to return to face the Bears on Sunday. Bush had a big debut for the Lions, putting up 191 total yards and a touchdown in Week 1.
Joique Bell got the start last week against Washington and had 20 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown in Detroit's 27-20 win. He added four catches for 69 yards, the same area that Bush has really excelled in throughout his career.
Bush has seven catches for 145 yards in less than two games this year. As a rookie in 2006 with the Saints, Bush had 88 catches for 742 yards, but he wasn't as active in that area with the Dolphins over the last two seasons. In two years with Miami, he had 588 receiving yards and that seems well within reach in 2013 if he can stay healthy.
