Dolphins RB Reggie Bush avoids serious knee injury


Dolphins RB Reggie Bush avoids serious knee injury

A source close to the Miami Dolphins told The Palm Beach Post that running back Reggie Bush @ReggieBush's injured left knee is "nothing season-ending" although he'll need to sit out a few games. He was hit in knee by a player's helmet. The former USC star has injured his left knee twice before -- a torn PCL in 2007 and a sprained MCL and torn meniscus in 2008. Bush already had 62 total yards at the time of his injury.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Dolphins' have a bye in Week 7 so the team may opt to rest him over the next three games to prepare him for a Week 8 return. In the mean time, second-year back Daniel Thomas appears to be the team's No. 2 back. Thomas finished Week 3 with 19 carries while rookie Lamar Miller @millertime_6 only had nine. It should be noted though that Miller had a much better yards per carry average (5.3) as well as a game-best 22-yard rush compared to Thomas (3.6 and nine-yard long, respectively). For now, fantasy owners should grab Thomas immediately while deeper formats should also consider adding Miller given the former's injury history.

My sources say Bush won't miss any time due to his knee injury. And you might want to check the boxscore re: his touchdown. Slow down and get it right or hire me to do it for you. I need a job...
