Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush was at practice on Wednesday, according to Tim Twentyman of the team's official website. Bush went through all of the drills in practice and should be listed as a full participant. He did, however, have a protective sleeve on his left knee, according to Michael Rothstein of ESPN.
Bush was held out of Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, but the team ended up winning without him. Bush was very adamant that he wanted to play in Week 3, but head coach Jim Schwartz ultimately held him out for precautionary reasons.
In Bush's absence, Joique Bell carries the ball 20 times for 63 yards and caught four passes for 69 yards. At this point, it sounds like Bush could have played in Week 3, so he is a safe bet to play and start in Week 4.
Fantasy Impact: Bush has looked good when he's actually playing and healthy. He's a valuable weapon running the ball, and just as value catching passes from quarterback Matthew Stafford. Bell has looked good thus far, and that probably means he'll continue to take carries from Bush, but smart money is on the latter getting back on track and he should be started in fantasy if you lack better options.
