Reggie Bush not expected to play today vs. Redskins

When the Lions and their running backs face the Redskins this afternoon, they will get one of their friendliest fantasy matchups of the year.

One of the running backs that won't get to take advantage of the matchup is Reggie Bush (knee), as ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted minutes ago that Bush is not expected to play.

The Redskins have allowed more than 200 rushing yards per game and allowed back-to-back rushers in consecutive weeks: LeSean McCoy and James Starks.

With Bush out, Bell has RB1 upside with the favorable matchup and Mikel Leshoure should be active for the first time this season.

Per Schefter, Bush is expected to play next week against the Bears.
