Reggie Bush rushed for 86 yards and one touchdown on 17 carries in Monday night's Week 15 loss to the Ravens.

Bush added two catches for 15 yards on four targets out of the backfield. He didn't seem to be too bothered by the calf injury that forced him to miss last week's loss to the Eagles, though Bush did appear to tweak it a bit late in the third quarter. He stayed in the game. Bush's longest run went for 19 yards, while his touchdown went around left tackle for a 14-yard score. He walked into the end zone untouched. Bush should be ready to roll as an RB1 in a home date with the Giants during fantasy Super Bowl week next Sunday.

Reggie Bush (calf) is active for Monday night's Week 15 game versus Baltimore.

As expected. Bush was listed as questionable after getting in two limited practices Friday and Saturday. The expectation is that he'll handle his normal workload on the fast track at Ford Field. The Ravens play tough run defense, but Bush is a space player and is mostly matchup-proof in this offense. Fire him up as an RB1. Inactive for the Lions are CB Chris Houston, CB Darius Slay, QB Kellen Moore, RB Mikel Leshoure, OL Rodney Austin, OL Jason Fox, and OL Leroy Harris.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on SportsCenter early Monday that the "expectation within the Lions' organization" is Reggie Bush (calf) will handle his normal workload Monday night against Baltimore.

Bush is officially listed as questionable, but beat writers close to the team all along have expected him to play. "The expectation within the Lions' organization is hess going to be out there and take his normal snaps," said Schefter. Fantasy owners should check back for pre-game confirmation, but all signs point to Bush handling 20-plus touches back in Detroit's Ford Field dome.

The Detroit Free Press, ESPN and the Lions' official site all expect Reggie Bush (calf) to play in Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Bush practiced on both Friday and Saturday. At this point, it appears only an aggravation or late change of heart would keep him out. Furthermore, beat writer Dave Birkett expects Bush to get his "regular allotment" of snaps. There's always risk with waiting for Monday night, but Bush appears safe to put into lineups.

Reggie Bush (calf) is listed as questionable for Week 15.

Bush practiced on a limited basis this week and is expected to play on Monday night against the Ravens. Despite last week's pre-game disaster, he's safe to put back into fantasy lineups. Rotoworld ranks Bush as No. 16 running back for Week 15.

Reggie Bush (calf) returned to practice Friday, and the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett is giving Bush an "88.9 percent" chance of playing on Monday Night Football against Baltimore.

Birkett was half joking with the "88.9 percent," but he clearly expects Bush to play after seeing him move around on the practice field and at Lions headquarters. Bush is an every-week RB1 whenever active, even despite last week's pre-game disaster. He'll also be back indoors Monday, where the Lions' coaching staff has more confidence feeding Bush and playing him on a high volume of snaps.

Reggie Bush admitted that there was no way he could have played through his calf injury last Sunday.

Bush's zero snaps had nothing to do with the sloppy, snowy field in Philadelphia. After aggravating his calf pull while jogging (not slipping) during warmups, he had no shot. "I couldn't go," he said Wednesday. "I couldn't even sit here and lie and say I would have been able to push through it. I couldn't push through it." Bush says he'll be playing against the Ravens on Monday night, but practice will tell the real story. Aggravation via simple jogging is not a good sign.

Reggie Bush (calf) said he expects to play in Monday night's game against the Ravens.

Bush aggravated his calf pull while warming up in the snow at Philadelphia on Sunday. Now he gets a long week and a home date on the friendly turf of Ford Field. Players are often overly optimistic on their health, but Bush couldn't ask for a much better setup. He can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now as we wait to see how he progresses in practice later this week.
