Lions' Bush questionable for Monday

The Sports NetworkDecember 14, 2013 

Allen Park, MI ( - The Detroit Lions have listed leading rusher Reggie Bush questionable for Monday's game against Baltimore due to a calf injury he aggravated prior to the team's most recent outing.

Bush was active for last Sunday's matchup at Philadelphia, but did not play after slipping and falling on the ice-covered surface at Lincoln Financial Field during warmups.

The versatile running back was held out of Thursday's practice before receiving limited reps in each of the last two days.

Bush has been having a very good first season in Detroit, with the ex-Miami Dolphin having rushed for 854 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games and adding another 448 yards and two scores on 45 receptions.

Star wide receiver Calvin Johnson is expected to play on Monday despite missing some practice time this week with a minor knee problem. Detroit will likely be down a pair of cornerbacks against the Ravens, however, with starter Chris Houston and rookie Darius Slay both declared doubtful for the contest.

Houston did not practice at all this week as he battles a toe injury, while Slay had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee earlier in the month.

The Lions have also termed defensive end Ezekial Ansah (shoulder) questionable to face the Ravens.
