Source: Reggie Bush avoids serious knee injury, but Miami Dolphins fear he could miss some time
by Ben Volin

The Dolphins played the entire second half against the Jets on Sunday without star running back Reggie Bush. They might have to get by for a few more weeks. A source said Monday morning that Bush’s left knee injury is “nothing season-ending,” but the Dolphins are concerned that Bush may have to miss a few games. The Dolphins face Arizona and Cincinnati on the road and St. Louis at home before their Bye in Week 7.

Bush took a helmet to his knee with just 36 seconds left in the first half as the Dolphins tried to run out the clock. He tested his knee on the sideline after emerging late from the halftime locker room, working feverishly with a trainer and on a stationary bike, but the medical staff determined that he couldn’t play in the second half.

Bush has an injury history in his left knee — a torn posterior cruciate ligament in 2007 and a sprained medial collateral ligament and torn meniscus in 2008.

Bush, the AFC Offensive Player of the Week in Week 2, was off to another strong day, with 10 carries for 61 yards before the injury. He currently sits fourth in the NFL with 302 rushing yards on a 6.0 average.

Before the injury, Bush had been the focal point of the Dolphins’ offense and on pace for a personal-best workload, with 60 offensive touches through 2.5 games, a pace of 384 for the season. Bush set a career high with 259 offensive touches last year.

Bush’s injury likely means an increased workload for second-year running back Daniel Thomas and rookie Lamar Miller, both of whom showed positives and negatives on Sunday in Bush’s absence.

Rookie RB Lamar Miller "still doesn't know the playbook well" and is "raw as a pass blocker," according to the Palm Beach Post.
Miller is clearly a better pure runner than Daniel Thomas. But he doesn't have the trust of the coaches yet and therefore the two figure to share the load while Reggie Bush (knee) is sidelined. We still prefer Miller as the better fantasy play. He actually has the burst and speed to do damage when he does get touches.

Dolphins’ Reggie Bush expects to play Sunday, hints he’s upset with Jets
By Ben Volin
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer


Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, making his weekly Tuesday morning radio appearance on The Paul and Young Ron Show, confirmed that his MRI on Monday showed no structural damage in his left knee and he hopes to play Sunday at Arizona.

“It’s just a bruise,” Bush said of the injury he suffered in the second quarter Sunday against the Jets. “I’m working hard to get back for this week.”

Meanwhile, Bush is seemingly upset with the Jets, who have been accused by some fans of deliberately trying to hurt Bush.

Jets linebacker Calvin Pace said “we had to put him out” after Sunday’s game, and was forced to clarify Monday that there was not a bounty on Bush and his injury was not deliberate. Jets coach Rex Ryan also said in the days before the game that the Jets had to put “hot sauce” on Bush, or hit him extra hard.

In Tuesday’s radio appearance, Bush intimated that karma served the Jets when Darrelle Revis later suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s game, ending his season.

“It’s like the old saying, what goes around, comes around,” Bush said. “They talked about all week about putting hot sauce and this and that, and they ended up losing their best player for the rest of the season.

Not really close enough to the Phins situation to know how Thomas stacks up against Lamar Miller. If he can protect the QB, Thomas would have an advantage, but if it comes down to running talent Miller has better game changing ability.

Cornerback Richard Marshall, running back Daniel Thomas unable to practice for Miami Dolphins
By Brian Biggane
Palm Beach Post Staff Writer


DAVIE — Cornerback Richard Marshall could be on the sidelines for a second straight game Sunday, and Dolphin running back Daniel Thomas could be with him.

Neither Marshall, who hasn’t practiced in two weeks due to a back injury, nor Thomas, who suffered his second concussion of the season Sunday, participated in practice Wednesday as the Dolphins began preparations for Sunday’s game against St. Louis at Sun Life Stadium.

Marshall hasn’t been seen around the team’s practice facility in close to two weeks. And while Nolan Carroll had a solid outing in replacing him Sunday, Carroll also was limited Wednesday due to an Achilles injury and remained in the training room for the entire 45-minute media session after practice.

Carroll, who struggled in the three starts he made last year in place of the injured Vontae Davis, drew praise from defensive coordinator Kevin Coyle for his play in the 17-13 win over Cincinnati.

“This was the first opportunity he had to start and really (have) a full week of preparation with that mindset,” Coyle said. “I was very happy for him, and proud of the way he competed. He competed hard all day long and got his hands on some balls.”

Thomas, meanwhile, watched the early part of practice from the sidelines, then appeared to struggle when working with a trainer on an agility drill. This is his second concussion of the season and, with a bye week up next, there’s a good chance coach Joe Philbin will instead use rookie Lamar Miller to back up Reggie Bush against the Rams.
