Reggie Bush started the Bills' third preseason game and rushed three times for 17 yards, also missing his lone target.
Bush was the starter because Shady McCoy was resting and Mike Gillislee is out with a concussion. The Bills used Bush in the Shady role, however, giving him first-team carries on early downs, and subbing in rookie Jonathan Williams in some passing situations. Some beat writers believe Bush is the fantasy handcuff for McCoy. Bush is unlikely to carve out any standalone value. Aug 26 - 10:54 PM

Reggie Bush is expected to open the season as the Bills' No. 2 running back.

This is per ESPN Bills reporter Mike Rodak and was essentially confirmed in Saturday's preseason game, when Bush operated as Buffalo's clear second back after LeSean McCoy, and Mike Gillislee suffered a concussion. Bush is expected to be the Bills' punt returner and mix into the passing game behind Shady.

Bills GM Doug Whaley said Monday that the team views Reggie Bush as "mainly a returner."

Whaley said the coaches may draw up "some sets" that will have Bush and LeSean McCoy on the field "together," but the Bills mainly want Bush to upgrade their return game. Were McCoy to miss time, Bush would become a candidate for passing-game work. Bush isn't going to offer standalone fantasy value.

Bills signed RB Reggie Bush to a one-year contract worth up to $3 million including incentives.

31-year-old Bush appeared in five games for San Francisco last season, managing 28 yards on eight carries and four receptions before suffering a year-ending MCL tear. He has recovered fully and will compete for a depth chart spot behind LeSean McCoy in Buffalo. Mike Gillislee is the favorite to open the season as McCoy's direct backup, but Bush is superior in the passing game and could have a niche/specialty role were McCoy to miss any time. Bush isn't worth draft consideration in most fantasy leagues, but might be worth a pickup in PPR formats if McCoy suffered an injury.
Aug 1 - 4:05 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills are "finalizing a deal" for free agent Reggie Bush.

La Canfora says the deal will be for one year and should be "done shortly." Bush's 2015 season ended with a torn MCL, but he has recovered fully. Karlos Williams' suspension forced Buffalo to explore free agent backs to compete with Mike Gillislee, Jonathan Williams, and James Wilder Jr. behind LeSean McCoy.

Free agent RB Reggie Bush is visiting the Bills on Monday.

The two sides have been talking since Karlos Williams was tagged with a four-game suspension, and it looks like an agreement could finally be nigh. Bush might want some face-to-face assurances on opportunities before he agrees, and Buffalo also likely wants to examine his knee after he ended last season on injured reserve. If everything checks out, Bush should be a Bill by the end of the day.

Pro Football Talk reports the Bills and free agent RB Reggie Bush are still talking.

Bush was heavily linked with Buffalo following the four-game suspension to Karlos Williams, but Bush wants to take his time with the decision. "As of right now, I haven’t made a decision," Bush said earlier this month. "I’m still trying to figure out what’s going to be the best opportunity for me and my family." With no other reported interest in the former No. 2 overall pick, it would be surprising if he did not end up with Buffalo.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Bills have made an offer to free agent RB Reggie Bush.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported over the weekend he would be "very surprised" if the Bills did not reach out to Bush following the four-game suspension to Karlos Williams. Rapoport reports Bush is weighing his options and is in no rush to make a decision. Bush would compete with Mike Gillislee and rookie Jonathan Williams for a role behind LeSean McCoy, although Williams' future is murky after being arrested for DUI last week.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora would be "very surprised" if the Bills didn't reach out to free agent Reggie Bush.

Bills No. 2 back Karlos Williams is suspended four games, while rookie Jonathan Williams was popped for DUI on Thursday morning. The Bills are definitely in the running back market. Bush, 31, managed 12 touches for the 49ers last season before suffering a year-ending meniscus tear. Bush is believed to be fully healed now and has been public about his intention to resume playing football.
Jul 15 - 4:08 PM

Coach Sean Payton said the Saints are not interested in free agent RB Reggie Bush.

Payton said the two sides talked about a reunion last offseason, but the Saints decided to go with C.J. Spiller instead. Bush ended up signing with the 49ers, but he managed just five games while dealing with various injuries including a season-ending meniscus tear. Payton is "sure" Bush will play this year, but he might have to wait until injuries strike to find a new home.

Free agent Reggie Bush says he's received interest from two teams.

"(I'm) just taking my time in this process," Bush said. "I want to do it the right way." The reality is, Bush would already be signed if anyone had significant interest. The good news is, he should be at or near 100 percent health after tearing his meniscus last Week 8. Bush will undoubtedly get a shot to crack someone's 53-man roster as a COP back.

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.
