Reggie Bush
RB BUF (10)
2 weeks ago

Bush was on the field for just two offensive snaps during Thursday's loss to the Jets. He did not have a carry or a catch.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps even more surprisingly, both the punt and kickoff return duties went to Brandon Tate, who did a good job and looks to be suppressing Bush's expected major role on special teams. The Bills did fire offensive coordinator Greg Roman on Friday, so we'll see if new OC Anthony Lynn decides to get the backups on the field a bit more. As of now, Bush is the No. 3 running back in Buffalo and no loner appears to be the main return man, so his fantasy value is pretty much nothing.

Bush lost four yards on three carries in Sunday's loss to Baltimore and failed to haul in his lone target.

EDGE Analysis

Bush was bottled up by the Ravens' defense in his first regular season game since tearing his MCL last season. Bush only collected four touches during the preseason, so shaking off some rust should be expected. That said, he's on the wrong side of 30, hasn't tallied more than 325 total yards in a season since 2013 and doesn't seem to offer a skillset varying that of starter LeSean McCoy. He shouldn't be featured in any lineups until his role and effectiveness becomes clearer.

Bush started Friday's game against Washington, gaining 17 yards on three carries and failing to haul in his only target.

EDGE Analysis

With LeSean McCoy held out due to a coach's decision, Bush essentially got the start by default, as Mike Gillislee (concussion) was unavailable. Head coach Rex Ryan recently refereed to Gillislee as the team's No. 2 running back, though Ryan did also make it clear that Bush is in the mix for backup work. Rookie fifth-rounder Jonathan Williams (rib) also has a strong chance to make the team, and regardless of how things shake out, Bush probably won't be viewed as an option to handle a heavy rushing workload. While Bush should have a role on special teams and in the passing game, he isn't the clear handcuff to McCoy.

Coach Rex Ryan called Mike Gillislee, who's currently in the league's concussion protocol following Saturday's preseason game, his current top backup behind LeSean McCoy, The Buffalo News reports. Said Ryan of the veteran Bush, "Well Reggie is just - like I said, we're going to be smart with him. I mean we don't want to just run his legs off as the number two back. But make no mistake, he's going to play for us and contribute not just as a returner but on offense as well."

EDGE Analysis

That supports the case we made earlier that Bush will be used in a utility role - playing on passing downs and certain formations while being the main punt and kickoff return man. He should end up getting a lot of action on this team, especially with Karlos Williams now out of the picture, but if you're looking at him as insurance in case McCoy goes down, that isn't really how the Bills see him.

Bush rushed one time for minus-1 yard, didn't catch a pass, and returned three punts for a total of 14 yards in Saturday's preseason win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Perhaps the bigger news is the Bills released Karlos Williams earlier Saturday, leaving one less player to compete with for touches behind LeSean McCoy. Bush could be the No. 1 guy for both kickoffs and for punts, but there's also a chance he gets slotted as the No. 2 running back; however, we could also see a situation where Bush becomes the third-down and passing situation back, with someone else being more of the workhorse should McCoy go down.

Bush (knee) returned to practice Wednesday after missing the last two days due to a personal matter, BuffaloBills.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bush's knee seems to be in decent shape, so he'll now continue his quest to earn a good-sized role for the Bills. At minimum, he looks to be the top guy in the return game.

Bush (knee) missed Monday's practice due to a personal matter.

EDGE Analysis

Nothing to see here with the knee, etc. for Bush, who seemed to come out of Saturday's preseason opener just fine and even talked his way into some return plays, something people around the team thought they were going to ease him into. With Karlos Williams headed for a four-game suspension, the No. 2 job behind LeSean McCoy still seems to be somewhat up for grabs, though there's a chance the team could use different players behind McCoy in different roles. For example, Bush could prove to be the team's passing down back as well as the primary punt and kick returner.

While Bush (knee) is expected to dress for Saturday's game against the Colts, he won't be used on returns, BuffaloBills.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's not unheard of for a veteran to twist his coach's arm and get in on something like a return play or two once the game gets going, but for this one it's more likely the Bills use Walter Powell, as Powell's role on the team is one under question. As for Bush, he's listed at the top of the depth chart for both kickoff and punt returns when regular season play gets underway.

The Bills have released their first depth chart and Bush (knee) is listed as the third running back.

EDGE Analysis

This is especially interesting because the guy at No. 2, Karlos Williams, will miss the first four weeks due to suspension. Bush is also listed as the top kickoff return man as well as the top punt returner. The talent behind the veteran at running back is pretty strong, so there's still plenty of time for a shakeup or two. But clearly, the Bills did not bring in Bush to be a camp body, and reportedly, he's been turning some heads with his burst following a long layoff from football.

Bush (knee) said he will be in football shape within a week, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bouncing back from November injuries to his MCL and meniscus, the 31-year-old Bush said he completed his recovery a couple months ago. He finalized a one-year contract with the Bills on Monday, officially joining a team that saw its RB depth take a considerable hit in the offseason. Karlos Williams reported to minicamp overweight and was then handed a four-game suspension by the league, while rookie Jonathan Williams was arrested on a DWI charge that could eventually lead to suspension. Regardless, Bills GM Doug Whaley told LeSean McCoy that the team primarily views Bush as a return man, Vic Carucci of the Buffalo News reports. Given his age and shaky injury history, Bush might even have to fight for his roster spot during camp and the preseason.
