Free agent Reggie Bush (knee) expects to resume running in two weeks.
30-year-old Bush plans to play at least one more season. He’s recovering from a torn meniscus, but should be ready for training camp. Unlikely to draw interest as more than a third-down back, Bush may cost a near-NFL-minimum deal. Feb 12 - 6:11 PM

Impending free agent Reggie Bush (knee) said he is not retiring.

Bush's first and likely only season with the 49ers ended early after he slipped on the concrete at the Edward Jones Dome and tore his meniscus Week 8. Bush should be ready for training camp, but it is not a given he will find a new home before then. Soon-to-be 31, Bush has played in 16 games total the last two seasons.

49ers placed RB Reggie Bush on injured reserve with a torn meniscus, ending his season.

The injury was initially reported as an ACL tear, then an MCL tear. Turns out, it was to Bush's meniscus. Bush's 10th NFL season ends with 12 touches for 47 yards sprinkled across five games. Bush has had a long and productive career as the No. 2 overall pick of the 2006 draft, but he's running out of gas going on age 31. An impending free agent, it could be deep into next summer before Bush finds a new home.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Reggie Bush suffered a torn MCL in the Week 8 loss to the Rams and will miss the rest of the season.

His ACL is intact. It's a glimmer of good news, but Bush will still be sent to season-ending injured reserve. After slipping on the exposed concrete behind the team benches at the Edward Jones Dome on Sunday, the Rams are talking with the NFL about covering up the concrete. Bush will be a free agent in March and turns 31 in the offseason. His career is close to being over.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Reggie Bush is believed to have suffered a torn left ACL in the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Rams.

Bush was injured midway through the first quarter while returning a punt. He slipped on some exposed concrete behind the team bench and hurt his knee. Bush lay on the ground near the stands before getting carted to the locker room. Turning 31 next March and headed toward free agency, this could be the end of Bush's legendary football career. With Bush, Mike Davis (hand), and Carlos Hyde (foot) sidelined, Kendall Gaskins got the No. 1 reps on Sunday.

Reggie Bush exited Week 8 against the Rams with an apparent left knee injury.

Bush was injured midway through the first quarter while returning a punt. Running out of bounds, Bush slipped on some slick concrete behind the team bench and needed to be carted to the locker room. Bush got the start at running back for the 49ers with Carlos Hyde (foot) out. Mike Davis is next man up in the backfield. He promptly was tackled for a safety the next possession.

Reggie Bush is expected to start Sunday.

Bush should see close to a full workload with Carlos Hyde (stress fracture) out. Mike Davis is a threat to cut into his carries, but has done nothing (1.3 YPC) to have a more than a short-yardage role. With Hyde expected to miss multiple games and eventually need surgery, Bush will push for RB3/FLEX value for however long Hyde is sidelined.

Reggie Bush rushed four times for 21 yards in San Francisco's Week 7 loss to the Seahawks, catching 3-of-5 targets for an additional 13 yards.

The 34 yards from scrimmage were a season high for a player who has been active only four times. The Niners want Bush to change the pace and catch passes behind workhorse bruiser Carlos Hyde, but the offense is so dysfunctional, he's going to have a lot of 4-6 touch games. Bush arguably doesn't even need to be rostered in 14-team leagues.

Reggie Bush (calf) is listed as probable for Week 7.

Carlos Hyde (foot) is listed as questionable, but is expected to start. Bush should play on third downs and in pass situations.
Wed, Oct 21, 2015 05:54:00 PM

The 49ers are "very optimistic" Reggie Bush (calf) will return for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Bush's return won't make a difference, and he'll be at risk of an(other) aggravation. Bush is miles from fantasy relevance in San Francisco.
Mon, Oct 19, 2015 02:43:00 PM

49ers declared RB Reggie Bush, WR Bruce Ellington, LB Gerald Hodges, G Brandon Thomas, G Ian Silberman, NT Mike Purcell, and LB Corey Lemonier inactive for Week 6 against the Ravens.

Carlos Hyde will be the 49ers' feature back, with Jarryd Hayne and rookie Mike Davis backing him up.

Reggie Bush (calf) is listed as doubtful for Week 6.

Bush is week to week after having a setback with his calf injury. Jarryd Hayne and Mike Davis will back up Carlos Hyde.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 05:50:00 PM

Reggie Bush (calf) missed 49ers practice on Friday and is not expected to play in Week 6.

Bush can't shake his calf strain, which has been a debilitating injury for many players league wide this season, with Alshon Jeffery, Victor Cruz, Bush, and Marshawn Lynch coming to mind. Carlos Hyde should see a heavy workload when the 49ers host the Ravens on Sunday.
Fri, Oct 16, 2015 03:06:00 PM

Reggie Bush (calf) remained sidelined Thursday.

Bush is almost certainly going to miss Sunday's game against the Ravens. Bush is safely droppable in 14-team leagues.
Thu, Oct 15, 2015 08:39:00 PM

Reggie Bush (calf) is not practicing Wednesday.

Bush can't get over his calf issue. He played through it Weeks 4 and 5, but aggravated the injury last Sunday. Bush isn't a fantasy option, even when healthy.
