Reggie Bush Injury: Updates on Lions RB's Thumb and Groin

Mike Chiari@mikechiariFeatured ColumnistSeptember 9, 2013

Detroit Lions fans got to see the good and the bad of new running back Reggie Bush on Sunday as he put up 191 total yards in a 34-24 victory over the Minnesota Vikings, but he also suffered a couple injuries that could potentially linger moving forward. 

According to Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com, Bush dislocated his left thumb and pulled his groin in the first quarter of Detroit's season opener. While Bush returned to action and was a big reason for the Lions' impressive win, he already seems to be walking on eggshells in the injury department.

Based on Bush's explanation of the thumb injury he suffered, it was a pretty gruesome scene, but he was able to persevere and thrive against the Vikes.

"[My] thumb's all right," Bush said. "It'll probably start killing me in a little bit once everything wears off. I dislocated it early in the first quarter and it was facing the wrong direction.

"They just popped it back in. Thankfully I was able to tape it up and carry the ball in my right hand."

Guyism's Senior Editor A. Isaac captured the incident via Fox Sports programming: 

Bush is expected to play Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals.
