Pregame Notes: Reggie Bush Active And Ready To Run; Other Notes

Posted Sep 30, 2012

Dolphins leading rusher ready to roll.

GLENDALE, Ariz. – One week after dealing with an injury scare, Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush will be back on the field for today’s showdown with the Arizona Cardinals.

Bush recovered fast enough from the knee injury that knocked him out of the second half of last week’s game against the New York Jets and is primed to test Arizona’s 17th-ranked run defense. He will have a full stable of backups to spell him in rookie Lamar Miller, second-round running back Daniel Thomas and fullback Jorvorskie Lane.

Bush’s recovery allowed Head Coach Joe Philbin to out together a basic inactive list consisting of quarterback Pat Devlin, wide receivers Marlon Moore and Rishard Matthews, linebacker Austin Spitler, offensive tackle Will Yeatman, defensive tackle Tony McDaniel and tight end Michael Egnew. Spitler (groin) and McDaniel (knee) were the only injury casualties.

The Cardinals are a little more banged up and will be going without one of their defensive leaders in defensive tackle Darnell Dockett (hamstring). Tight ends Todd Heap (knee) and Jim Dray (knee), running back LaRod Stephens-Howling (hip), quarterback John Skelton, wide receiver LaRon Byrd and guard Senio Kelemete joined Dockett on the inactive list.

## Cornerback Richard Marshall, who was bothered by a back injury earlier this week, was not about to miss his chance to play against the team he suited up for last year. He was chatting with Cardinals safety Kerry Rhoades on the field before the game.

## Former Dolphins fullback Reagan Mau’ia was re-signed by Arizona and the Cardinals placed fullback Korey Hall on the reserve/retired list.
