Pro Sports Daily:
Reports this morning out of Detroit have Lions running back Reggie Bush not practicing Friday, with his right leg wrapped up. Bush hasn’t been listed on the Lions’ injury report this week.
If Bush can’t play Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, that would very much please owner Jerry Jones.
Jones was asked Friday morning on KRLD-FM who he’s more worried about this week with the Lions: wide receiver Calvin Johnson or Bush.
“Well, I think Bush,” Jones said. “When I look at where we seem to have some vulnerability using the passes out of the backfield, I look at what San Diego did, I look at times what Philadelphia did, if they were able to do anything at all, coming out of that backfield. That seems defensively to be a rough area for us.
BEST OF MAXIM
If there’s anyone who can understand the feeling and emotion of winning in surprising fashion on a crazy fake spike play at the goal line, it’s Reggie Bush. Back in 2005, Bush’s No. 1-ranked USC Trojans beat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium 34-31 on a similar quarterback sneak for a touchdown. […]
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, Lions running back Reggie Bush was held out of Friday’s practice as a precaution.
Reggie Bush said he missed practice today for “precautionary” reasons. Not related to previous knee injury. No need to panic.

Calvin Johnson comes down with a 54 yard reception in today’s game
What It Means- The Dallas Cowboys fall to 4-4 on the season after being dominated on both the offensive and defensive sides of the ball by the Detroit Lions. The ‘Boys were lucky to be in the game and just when everyone thought they were going to steal a win in Detroit, they lost in classic Cowboys fashion, giving...
The Detroit Lions officially have RB Reggie Bush listed as probable heading into today’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Bush has been dealing with a knee injury and had a scare this week in practice. Bush was limited in practice this week and was seen with his right knee wrapped during practice on Friday. It was reported that the move to miss practice was simply precautionary...
Detroit Lions stars Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush are both listed as probable for this week’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Johnson was able to participate in practice on a limited basis on Friday while Bush missed practice all together. Bush’s absence was considered precuationary and his is fully expected to be fine for this weekend.
Injury Outlook: We’ll start...
Detroit Lions playmaker Reggie Bush missed Friday’s practice as a precaution to rest his ailing leg. Bush will compete this weekend when the Lions (4-3) host the Cowboys (4-3) in Detroit. “Feel good,” said Bush, 28, who signed a four-year contract with the Lions in March worth roughly $20 million. “Just taking a day off, getting ready for the game on Sunday.” Possibly working...
Dallas receiver Dez Bryant thinks he “can do whatever he can do.”
NFL analyst Cris Carter refused to count him among the league’s six best wide receivers two years ago.
Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman changed his own Twitter handle to Optimus Prime.
The list goes on and on. The slings and arrows, the quips and japes and jabs come often and from everywhere.
This is what...
ESPN “analyst” Cris Carter is known for his ridiculous hyperbole. However, his comments on Detroit Lions WR Calvin Johnson this morning actually were rather prescient. He pretty much predicted the huge breakout game to be had this afternoon. Calvin Johnson, or Megatron as the kids call him is great at football. But when you read Carter’s comments on Megatron you may ask yourself...
Calvin Johnson and the Detroit Lions made the most of a few extra seconds.
Johnson caught 14 passes for 329 yards, but like almost everyone else at Ford Field, he was a mere bystander when teammate Matthew Stafford lunged for a 1-yard touchdown with 12 seconds left to give the Lions a 31-30 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
''Our team has been resilient through...
With Dez Bryant making this incredible catch earlier in the game Sunday, Lions Calvin Johnson wasn’t to be outdone and pulled down this amazing catch in double coverage:
This is becoming customary for Johnson, who seems to make catches like this on a weekly basis. Though Bryant scored on a 50-yard catch and run to put the Cowboys...
You had the feeling if the Lions could only get out of their own way, they would have a good chance to beat the Cowboys Sunday.
After all, for three quarters the defense had held Tony Romo and the Dallas offense in relative check. Calvin Johnson was in full Megatron mode, achieving an NFL-record tying fifth career 200-yard receiving day (329 yards). And the Cowboys were playing...
The Calvin Johnson, Matthew Stafford and the Detroit Lions are taking their talents to merry ole England, at least for one week.
The NFL announced Thursday that Detroit will head to London in 2014 for regular season match up with the Atlanta Falcons from Wembley Stadium.
“We are excited for the opportunity to play on an international stage against a quality NFC opponent,” Lions...
DETROIT Jerry Jones was not talking about moral victories after Sunday's surprising 31-30 loss to the Lions.
Standing in the visitors' locker room at Ford Field, the Cowboys owner and general manager said although it felt like the Cowboys were going to win, he fully understood what was capable of happening with a dynamic player like Detroit's Calvin Johnson on the field...
Sunday’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions was billed to have the subplot of wide receivers Calvin Johnson and Dez Bryant dueling it out.
They have not disappointed.
Your move Johnson.
No doubt about it, Sunday’s most exciting NFL clash was between the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions.
Two high-powered offenses, and attitude problems from Dez Bryant made this game a blogger’s dream. Whether it was Dez’s outbursts that made for great GIFs, or Megatron’s play that just makes him that much greater – this game had it all, from start to finish.
The Best of...
