ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- A few hours after Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said his running back, Reggie Bush, had missed the past two days of practice due to "rest," Bush eliminated any doubt about his status.

Bush returned to practice Tuesday with the Lions, leaving the team with just three players not practicing: Don Carey (hamstring), linebacker Kyle Van Noy (abdominal) and defensive end Jason Jones.

It is likely this was just a veteran's day of rest for Jones, who was in the locker room prior to practice.

Some other nuggets from the short media practice viewing:
  • Both of Detroit's waiver claims from Monday -- Emil Igwenagu and Michael Egnew -- were at practice. Egnew is wearing No. 49 and working with the tight ends. Igwenagu is wearing No. 44 and working with the running backs. How cruel is the NFL world sometimes? Jacob Maxwell, who was cut Tuesday, wore No. 49 on Monday and Chad Abram, who was cut Monday, wore No. 44.
  • Linebacker Shamari Benton continues to not have a nameplate with his No. 44 jersey (on defense). Considering he was signed over a week ago, typically the Lions have been pretty good about making sure names are on jerseys.
  • Tight end Brandon Pettigrew had guests from the Boys & Girls Club of Detroit at practice on Tuesday.
