RB Reggie Bush, DT Fairley questionable
By Michael Rothstein
Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush returned to practice Friday and is now listed as questionable to play Sunday against Washington after injuring his left knee against Arizona last week.
On Thursday, Bush was "optimistic" he would be available against the Redskins, but said it would be a group decision between the staff and Bush. He was limited in practice Friday.
If for some reason he cannot play, expect Joique Bell and rookie Theo Riddick to receive the majority of carries and targets out of the backfield.
Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who missed last week's game at Arizona with a shoulder injury but has been limited in practice all week, is also listed as questionable.
Wide receiver Pat Edwards, who injured his ankle against the Cardinals, is out. This likely means Ryan Broyles will probably be active for the first time this season. This week, Broyles said "I'm capable of playing."
Right tackle Jason Fox, who hasn't practiced all week with a groin injury, and safety Don Carey, are doubtful for Sunday.
Safety Louis Delmas (knee), left guard Rob Sims (knee), linebacker Ashlee Palmer (ankle) and defensive end Jason Jones (knee) -- all of whom are starters -- are all probable for Sunday.
