08:45 AM ET 09.21 | Lions running back Reggie Bush wants to play on Sunday. The Lions may not let him play. Bush has a knee injury, and the Lions have listed him as questionable. Technically a 50-50 proposition, the scales could tilt toward shutting him down for Week Three. Per a league source, the Lions may opt to play it safe with Bush. They want him to be available for the long haul, and so they're inclined to give him a week off to heal before putting him back in harm's way.

If I remember correctly, his contract is incentive-laden. Of course he wants to play. This is why players need to be protected from themselves.

The LIONS would be smart to set Bush out but since have the LIONS did anything smart.

Bush was "questionable" when they signed him but they really don't need him against the Redskins.

Wouldn't worry bout too much if I'm a lions fan Mke Shanhans redskin defense cant stop anybody. Only way redskins beat anyone this yr is by outscoring them in the high 30's

Unlike his X Kim K, Reggie is too brittle to take a pounding.

Much like the Lion O-line imitates a turnstile, Kim has a turnstile at her bedroom door.

I'm not sure what would disturb me more: If my son brought home Kim K or Monica Lewinski.
