Bush Comments on Injury

Sunday, Nov. 1

"I'm not angry that it happened," Bush said, per Taylor Price of 49ers.com. "It is what it is. Everybody else has played on it, so you can't be mad about it now."

Jeff Darlington of the NFL Network shared a photo of the play where Bush suffered the injury, while also sharing another photo of Josh McCown slipping in the same area last week:


Bush's Injury Further Depletes 49ers' RB Depth

The 49ers signed Bush in the offseason to share touches with promising second-year player Carlos Hyde. Unfortunately, Bush suffered a strained calf in Week 1's win over the Minnesota Vikings and watched Hyde assert himself as a legitimate feature back. 

Shaun Draughn, Kendall Gaskins and recently-released Pierre Thomas have all gotten carries for the 49ers as they look to find a replacement for Bush.
