Tomsula praises veteran 49ers RB Reggie Bush


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/10/2015) Jim Tomsula has not ruled out veteran newcomer Reggie Bush earning the featured back spot this season for the 49ers over young Carlos Hyde, who was the presumed heir apparent to the departed Frank Gore.

"Reggie's really moving around," Tomsula said. "[He's] a spry guy. He has a lot of energy in his legs and in his body and his attitude. What a wonderful addition in all aspects. ... He's moving great and we love having him here."

Bush will not be given a particularly heavy workload in the preseason because the coaches will be more interested in evaluating their younger players. It remains to be seen how the playng time in the backfield will be split in the exhibition season.


49ers RB Reggie Bush wants punt return duties


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/31/2015) 49ers running back Reggie Bush is a 10-year veteran who hasn't returned a punt in four years, but he wants that role with his new team.

Bush, who has returned four punts for touchdowns in his career, last returned punts as a member of the Dolphins in 2011, but believes he can help the 49ers from that position.

“I did miss it and I just felt like the opportunity was there for me. Just speaking with the coaches, I told them I wanted to return punts and they were all for it. I think it’s something that gives me another way to showcase my talents and help the team. The past four years, just sitting back and watching, it was something I kind of missed, making an impact from a special teams standpoint.”

Bush has totaled 772 yards on 98 career punt returns.


Tomsula: Reggie Bush can be 'an every-down back'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2015) The 49ers didn't sign running back Reggie Bush to be "a gadget guy," coach Jim Tomsula told reporters, per the San Jose Mercury News. "Reggie Bush is a running back, and I’m really excited about Reggie joining the crew."

Added Tomsula: "Reggie can be an every down back. He’s done that in the NFL, OK? I don’t know [that] we’re looking that way. Reggie is a very good space player, OK? Reggie can, it’s well documented, his skil set on third down. Reggie, I mean, he’s a running back.”

Bush joins Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter in the backfield. The 30-year-old Bush was released after two seasons with the Lions.

Report: Reggie Bush opts for California reunion, signs with 49ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Bush, who also visited San Francisco, will join a backfield that includes Carlos Hyde and Kendall Hunter.

"I would say that, but I would say that about Ndamukong (Suh), I would say that about all of our free agents," Mayhew said. "Their future is up in the air.

"Yeah, well, a lot of guys that are under contract are in the same situation," Mayhew said. "So it's really about the value you bring to the organization, that's constantly re-evaluated every off-season."

Bush has two years left on a four-year, $16 million contract that he signed before the 2013 season. After rushing for over 1,000 yards in 2013, Bush dealt with a number of injuries all through 2014. He appeared in 11 games for the Lions, totaling 297 yards on 76 carries with two touchdowns.


Lions' Reggie Bush moving past injury-filled season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2015) After running for over 1,000 yards in 2013, Reggie Bush dealt with injuries all through this past season. He was held out of five games and played hurt in many others. His season yardage total ended with just 297 rushing yards and two touchdowns, with an additional 253 receiving yards.

Bush has two years left on a four-year, $16 million contract that he signed before the 2013 season. In an interview with the Lions' official team site, Bush said he expects to be back with the organization and is hoping to put his injury-plagued season behind him.

“It’s tough because I was injured,” Bush said. “I haven’t been injured like this in a while where I’ve missed a majority of the season. That’s tough not to be out there. Just coming back and getting re-injured coming back getting re-injured that was pretty tough to go through mentally.

“I really started to feel good [at the end of the year] and obviously it’s unfortunate it took this long. I really started to feel good and back to myself.”


Lions RB Reggie Bush could be cap casualty during offseason


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Lions running back Reggie Bush still has two years left on his current contract with Detroit, but could potentially be among the cuts this offseason.

Bush has a cap number over $5 million for next season and the Lions would save $1.72 if he was cut. However, he believes he will be back with the team in 2015.

"I don't know, I haven't thought about that," Bush said, according to MLive.com. "I still have two years on my contract, so until somebody tells me otherwise, I'm planning on being back here."

Bush only played in 11 games for the Lions this year, totaling 297 yards on 76 carries with two touchdowns.

"I think I have a lot left to give this game," he said. "My body still feels pretty good, with the exception of the injuries I went through. I don't feel worn down, I don't feel beat up as a running back. Nine years in this league can make you feel that way. For me, I still feel pretty good, pretty young. I'm planning on playing for a while."


Reggie Bush scores TD in Wild Card loss vs. Cowboys


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/4/2015) Lions running back Reggie Bush rushed for 37 yards on eight carries with one touchdown and added 10 yards on three receptions in his team's 24-20 Wild Card loss to the Cowboys Sunday.

The touchdown was a throwback run by Bush, who froze a defender on a stutter-step and beat the defense to the corner for an 18-yard score. He had just two touchdowns on 116 touches in the regular season before coming through with a first-quarter score Sunday.


Lions RB Joique Bell (Achilles) might miss NFC North showdown


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(12/25/2014) The Lions might not have running back Joique Bell for Sunday's key game at Green Bay, reports MLive.com. Bell has been limited in practice this week with an Achilles injury, and coach Jim Caldwell said only, "We'll see," when asked about Bell's status.

Bell leads Detroit with 800 rushing yards and eight total touchdowns. He's averaged at least 4.0 yards per carry in four straight games, scoring five times in that span. If he can't play, Reggie Bush would start and Theo Riddick and George Winn would get increased snaps, the report said.

Detroit is a 7.5-point underdog in the game that will decide the division title.


Reggie Bush still has something to contribute


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2014) Though Joique Bell took the ball and ran with it, so to speak, while Reggie Bush missed much of Weeks 6-13 with an ankle injury, Bush showed he's not a complete afterthought Week 16 at Chicago, rushing seven times for 54 yards and a score and catching six passes for 44 yards.

Bell was still the primary ball carrier, of course, rushing 13 times for 74 yards and a touchdown and catching two passes for 13 yards, but Bush is still a big enough part of the game plan to factor in PPR leagues. Week 16 was the second game in three since returning in which he's caught at least four passes.


Lions RB Reggie Bush has big first half in Week 16 win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush received the bulk of the work early Sunday in Chicago and played a key role in keeping his team in striking distance for an eventual victory.

Bush made an 8-yard catch on the first play from scrimmage and added a 21-yarder off a screen soon thereafter. He then scored on a 13-yard run with five minutes later in the first quarter.

He took a back seat to Joique Bell in the second half, but did finish with 54 yards on seven carries and 44 yards on six receptions.

Bush and the Lions play at Green Bay next Sunday.

Joique Bell brushes off Reggie Bush


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/7/2014) Lions running back Reggie Bush returned to action Week 14 against Tampa Bay after missing a few games with an ankle injury and didn't play an insignificant amount, rushing eight times for 26 yards and catching four passes for 8. In fact, his 12 touches were his most since Week 4 at the Jets, when he had 16. And yet Joique Bell, Bush's platoon partner who has stepped up his production recent weeks, continued to thrive with 18 carries for 83 yards and a touchdown and five catches for 50 yards and a touchdown.

It was Bell's third straight game with at least 18 carries. He got 18 carries once before when Bush was healthy Week 7 against New Orleans, but he gained only 48 yards then. Part of the reason for his recent success is that he's just been more effective running the ball, averaging 4.1 yards per carry in his last four games compared to 3.3 in his previous eight. And at least the last two weeks, matchups have played a part in that.

You wouldn't want to count on Bell for more than 100 combined yards and two touchdowns every week with Bush back in the mix, but it's clear he's more reliable now than he was at the beginning of the season. With another favorable matchup Week 15 against Minnesota, he's a great second running back in most formats.


Lions' Reggie Bush has minimal impact in Week 14 win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
