Detroit Lions coach Jim Schwartz says tests on Reggie Bush’s left knee were “encouraging,” and there isn’t any major damage.
“The tests today were encouraging,” Schwartz said Monday. “He’s going to be sore but he doesn’t have anything that is going to be long term.”
Bush left the game with a left knee injury in the first half against the Arizona Cardinals Sunday. He returned briefly in the third quarter but couldn’t complete the game, as the Lions lost 25-21.
Schwartz mentioned that Bush was on his way to becoming a major contributor to the Lions before the injury.
Bush blazed his way to 191 yards from scrimmage in their last week win over the Minnesota Vikings, accounting for 69 yards of offense in less than two quarters against the Cardinals.
When asked how long Bush would be out, Schwartz said he isn’t sure.
“It’s too hard to speculate on injuries,” Schwartz said. “That’s why I usually don’t.”
