Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush suffered no structural damage to his left knee after being injured on Sunday, and his availability for this weekend’s game against the Washington Redskins has not been determined, reports Pro Football Talk.

Bush suffered the injury in the second quarter of the team’s 25-21 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Bush had already been nursing a thumb and a groin injury before the game.

So far this season, Bush has rushed for 115 yards on 30 carries and has seven receptions for 145 yards and a touchdown.

Lions head coach Jim Schwartz sounded optimistic about Bush’s MRI results.

“The tests today were encouraging,” Schwartz said. “He’s going to be sore but he doesn’t have anything that is going to be long term. It’s too hard to speculate on injuries. That’s why I usually don’t.”

I read this article trying to get information on what came back positive in the MRI.  The only thing I've come to find is that the headline writer is positively an idiot.

headline writer, don't say MRI and positive in the same sentence. Say MRI negative. Positive means there WAS structural damage... Next.

Bush is made of glass when it comes to artificial turf.

@olusegunobasanjo I thought the same...I have never heard a clean MRI called positive. Obviously we know seeing noting on the MRI is a positive thing but I have all heard medical people alike call that a negative reading

@craigswany Yes, and I have Reggie Bush as my only RB showing promise in fantasy, so this headline kinda made me swallow my tongue.
