It's been a crazy weekend for injuries in the AFC, but the Miami Dolphins caught a much-needed break.
Miami received good news Monday when an MRI showed no structural damage to tailback Reggie Bush’s knee, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Bush might play Sunday against the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals (3-0).
Bush entered Week 3 as the NFL’s second-leading rusher. He is the most dynamic player on the Dolphins and gives Miami the best chance to win. Without him, the Dolphins have to lean heavily on less-proven tailbacks Daniel Thomas and rookie Lamar Miller.
Miami fell apart early in the second half when Bush went out. Rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill threw a pick six and Thomas fumbled on back-to-back plays to give the Jets momentum. The Jets eventually won in overtime, 23-20.
The Dolphins are 1-2 and will be underdogs the next two weeks on the road against the Cardinals and Cincinnati Bengals (2-1). But getting Bush back in the lineup sooner than later provides Miami a better chance at winning.
