NFL Insider Jason La Canfora is hearing that Reggie Bush (ankle) will not play on Sunday.
Bush has been limited in practice this week and was expected to play, but now the word is that he will not be active. The Lions previously stated that they would like to get Bush fully healthy before putting him back on the field, as they stand a good chance to make the playoffs at the moment and aren't in complete 'win-now' mode, so if Bush is still feeling the effects of a lingering ankle injury, it would make sense for the Lions to give him another week to heal. Joique Bell's value now goes from a FLEX option to a low end RB2, as he will serve as the nearly every down back unless Theo Riddick's usage goes up from the past couple of weeks. Even if this is the case, Riddick's not the most talented runner and would be limited to third downs at best. Even in ppr-leagues, Riddick is an extremely risky FLEX player.
