Lions RB Reggie Bush plans to play against former team Week 7


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush said he will "for sure" be healthy enough to play Week 7 vs. New Orleans after sitting out Week 6 at Minnesota due to an ankle injury, according to The Detroit News. Bush said after Sunday's game he plans to play against the team that drafted him second overall in 2006.

With Bush sidelined Sunday, the Lions rushed for 100 yards. Running back Joique Bell led the team with 74 rushing yards and one touchdown on 18 carries, while running back George Winn had 16 yards on five carries. Running back Theo Riddick had three carries for 6 yards, but he was more effective in the passing game before leaving with a hamstring injury, totaling five catches for 75 yards and one touchdown. Bell added two catches for 23 yards.


Theo Riddick the one to get in Joique Bell's way


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Lions running back Joique Bell ended up having the big game so many Fantasy analysts anticipated for him with Reggie Bush sidelined by a sprained ankle Week 6 at Minnesota, but it didn't start out that way. That's because Theo Riddick, who wasn't available in Week 5 because of a hamstring injury, played a big role out of the backfield.

He scored the Lions' first touchdown on a 9-yard catch-and-run just a few plays after turning in a 41-yard catch-and-run. He ultimately led the Lions with 75 receiving yards and probably would have had more than three carries if his hamstring hadn't acted up just before halftime.

That's when Bell took over. Of his 18 carries, 13 came in the second half. He ended up rushing for 74 yards and a touchdown and added 23 more as a receiver.

George Winn, who stole many of Bush's carries when Bell was sidelined by a concussion last week, wasn't much of a factor, but he did get most of his carries after Riddick left, finishing with five for 16 yards.

So even though Bell showed he could serve as an every-down back, the Lions showed they prefer to have a rotation of rushers regardless of who's able to take the field. With Bush already talking like he'll be back for Week 7 against New Orleans, Bell remains a fringy starter in Fantasy.


Lions' George Winn, Jed Collins do little Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Lions backup runners had a rough game Week 6.

George Winn received five carries, gaining 16 yards. Fullback Jed Collins had one carry, picking up 3 yards. Both players will take on the Saints Week 7. 


George Winn not necessarily a must-add


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) With Reggie Bush sidelined by an ankle injury, reserve rookie running back George Winn Saw a sizeable role in Week 5 against the Bills Sunday.

Winn appeared in his first NFL game and rushed for 48 yards on 11 carries, while looking like a capable runner in a small sample. The Lions are incredibly thin at running back, so the injury report throughout the week is going to determine whether Winn is someone worth keeping an eye on. If Joique Bell or Theo Riddick looks likely to return from their injuries, there likely won't be much reason to go after Winn on waivers. 


Lions RB George Winn could be destined for action Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/2/2014) Just-promoted Lions running back George Winn could find himself carrying the ball a lot sooner than anticipated. He is likely to get a shot as early as Sunday against Buffalo.

Winn, who was one of the surprises of the preseason, might be needed with Joique Bell (concussion) and Theo Riddick (hamstring) potentially out.

"I think it's certainly a possibility," Jim Caldwell told MLive.com. "I think he's a guy that's up for the task as well. He worked extremely hard, obviously, during the preseason, was able to come in and do some good things. We think he's progressed since then."

Winn has been on the rosters of four different NFL teams since the beginning of last season but has yet to play a down.

Lions down to two healthy running backs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Lions might need to promote running back George Winn from the practice squad or sign a free agent because they currently have two healthy running backs, Reggie Bush and fullback Jed Collins, reports the Detroit Free Press. Joique Bell is recovering from a concussion, while Theo Riddick and Montell Owens are dealing with pulled hamstrings.

All three were knocked out of Sunday's win over the Jets. Lions coach Jim Caldwell has not provided any updates on the injured trio. Detroit hosts Buffalo in Week 5.
