Miami Dolphin’s fans can breath a sign of relief after an MRI on Monday morning revealed no structural damage to running back Reggie Bush’s left knee. A source close to the team claims that Reggie Bush could be ready to play by the time Miami takes on Arizona this coming Sunday.
On Monday morning Reggie Bush had hinted on Twitter that his injury wasn’t season ending. Bush tweeted:
“Received some great news today! Praise the Lord!”
The star running backs season was uncertain after he limped off the field with 23 seconds left in the first half of his teams overtime loss to the New York Jets this past weekend.
Before leaving the field Reggie Bush had racked up 61 yards on 10 carries. Bush was tackled and rolled over once before grabbing at his left knee. Trainers ran out onto the field and examined the running back before he was allowed to stand and exit the field of play.
Bush was followed into the teams dressing room by several medical staff members. Bush exited by the Dolphins’ sideline which was closer than the end zone tunnel.
Losing Reggie Bush would have been a big blow for the Miami Dolphins, he entered the game second in the NFL with 241 rushing yards. The only running back ahead of Bush is Buffalo’s C.J. Spiller who was injured on Sunday during his teams game against Cleveland.
The Miami Dolphins and Reggie Bush have not officially announced whether or not he would play during Sunday’s Arizona match.
