Though it appeared he was trying to loosen up on the sideline early in the second half, Bush, of course, could not return, raising questions of the severity of the injury. The long-term prognosis, however, appears to be positive.
Earlier today, both the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that not only did Bush avoid any serious damage, but he also may not miss any time at all.
As I reported last nite, Reggie Bush knee injury not serious. Not expected to miss significant time. Maybe a week at most, source says.

An MRI showed Reggie Bush did not suffer any structural damage to his left knee and he could play Sunday at Arizona.

From his personal Twitter account, Bush echoed those sentiments.
Received some great news today! Praise the Lord!

The team will not likely comment on Bush’s status for this week’s game against Arizona until the release of Wednesday’s post-practice injury report. If he’s able to practice–even in a limited capacity–it could give a good indication of whether he’s on track to play.
If he makes it back for Sunday’s game, Bush will face a Cardinals defense that’s surrendering a league-best 13.3 points per game.
