The Detroit Lions officially have RB Reggie Bush listed as probable heading into today’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Bush has been dealing with a knee injury and had a scare this week in practice. Bush was limited in practice this week and was seen with his right knee wrapped during practice on Friday. It was reported that the move to miss practice was simply precautionary.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports this morning that Bush will play this afternoon in an important conference game for both teams. The NFL Network showed video of Bush walking into the stadium this morning, and he had no noticeable limp.
Dallas is ranked 30th against the pass this season and 13th on defense against the run, 28th overall. Fantasy owners should go ahead and start Bush with confidence. In recent games, Dallas surrendered 150 yards and a score to Knowshon Moreno, 103-1 to Jamaal Charles, and 81 yards and a score to Alfred Morris.
Dallas has not won back-to-back road games since 2009.
