Miami Dolphins Running Back Reggie Bush Injures Knee in Loss to Jets

Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush suffered a knee injury with 23 seconds remaining in the first half of the team's 23-20 overtime loss to the New York Jets. Bush was able to walk off the field and into the locker room on his own, but did not return to the game.

The Dolphins turned the running game over to second year running back Daniel Thomas and rookie Lamar Miller after Bush left the game. The duo accounted for 117 yards on 28 carries, with a fumble and a touchdown.

"We wanted to give Lamar an opportunity once we thought Reggie couldn't play effectively," Miami head coach Joe Philbin said after the game. "We have two guys, we think a lot of both of them, and we think they're both capable of playing. Some of it was dictated by situation but some of it was spreading the carries around."

Bush worked on the stationary bike on the Miami sideline during the third quarter, trying to work his way back into the action. However, his knee reportedly stiffened up, and he was ruled out.

The Dolphins are expected to send Bush for an MRI on Monday.
