Kyle Shanahan explains gameplan for Lions
The Redskins will dodge having to face one of the Lions' biggest offensive threats today. Bush is inactive and will not play today at FedEx Field.
Bush was the Lions' prized free agent acquisition this past offseason. He is a dual threat out of the backfield as a shifty runner and receiver. He suffered a knee injury during the Lions' loss to Arizona last Sunday and he was listed as questionable on the Friday injury report. Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported yesterday that the Lions might sit Bush out today in order to give him a chance to rest and heal.
With the Redskins' defense struggling, Bush had a chance to have a big day. Now the Redskins will have to deal with Joique Bell, a solid backup but not the threat to take it all the way that Bush is.
