08:52 AM ET 05.30 | Hard Knocks has its first pre-shooting storyline, and it has to do with an A-lister. Moments after Dolphins coach Joe Philbin announced the team would appear on HBO's Hard Knocks, he deflected a question on the whereabouts of the Dolphins roster's biggest celebrity, running back Reggie Bush. Bush was absent from Tuesday's organized team activity workout. So was quarterback David Garrard, but he was dealing with tropical storm damage to his Jacksonville home. Asked about Bush, Philbin said, "I don't want to comment, I will talk about anyone who was here and what they did, but I am not going to talk about guys who were not here." According to Bush's Twitter account, he spent Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas.

Bush should be getting back to work as a cameo role in the reality show; kinda like the Kardashian one.

He will be back just in time for a dramatic entry via "Hard Knocks"... just like Larry Johnson.

Bush............idiot.

DD, I see you're just being punny.

Can it get any worse for the Dolphins? This season was going to be bad enough as it is, now they are going to broadcast it excruciatingly painful detail for the entire world to see.

If you mean G.W. then you are correct! HA!

But you cant just say that without knowing what the reason was....dont rush to judgment ppl. How many times have you heard about a player 'missing' then find out later he was dealing with a family matter like death or something. They do still have privacy (somewhat)

and it's voluntary....he isn't missing anything important or mandatory...

Not very clever--this is a sports blog, how about staying on-topic? There are plenty of political blogs where you can spout your enlightened and articulate views.

I think Reggie's new HC was hoping he could count on the support of the veteran players to set any kind of positive example for the team. I'm sure Philbin will remember this as soon as Reggie outlives his usefulness, or wants a new deal. "You scratch my back, I scratch yours."

Dont scratch too hard.....Hard Knocks!

Good. They can both tie for last place in the AFC East then.

Perhaps you can point out which political figure or party I ridiculed, disparaged, mocked, insulted, etc? That's right, you can't, because I didn't. On the other hand, the post that I was responding to was a direct attack on a specific individual which revealed a very clear political agenda. Perhaps you and like-minded readers frequent this site in order to engage in partisan political discussions; however, I come here to read about sports-related issues and to occasionally engage in coherent and relevant discussions on those topics. Is it too much to ask that a site that's ostensibly devoted to sports be devoid of partisan politics?

As I mentioned, there are innumerable outlets devoted to political discussions where individuals of all political persuasions freely spew partisan venom. If you're so inclined, I would suggest making use of those sites and leaving politics out of the discussion of whether or not Reggie Bush was wrong to skip a voluntary workout.
