Lions' Bush active for Monday

The Sports NetworkDecember 16, 2013 

Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush is active for Monday's game against Baltimore.

Bush was listed as questionable for the game as he aggravated a calf injury before last week's 34-20 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia. He slipped and fell on the ice-covered surface at Lincoln Financial Field during pregame warmups.

The versatile running back was held out of Thursday's practice before receiving limited reps in each of the last two days.

Bush has been having a very good first season in Detroit, with the ex-Miami Dolphin having rushed for 854 yards and three touchdowns over 11 games and adding another 448 yards and two scores on 45 receptions.

Rookie defensive end Ezekial Ansah (shoulder) is also active after being listed as questionable.

Detroit, though, will be without cornerbacks Chris Houston and rookie Darius Slay as both are inactive for the contest.

Houston did not practice at all due to a toe injury, while Slay had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his knee earlier in the month.
