Reggie Bush laughs off ankle injury at Lions minicamp

ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Day two of minicamp was winding down Wednesday when the slick field at the Lions headquarters got the best of Reggie Bush.

The Lions running back turned his ankle on a broken play, and came up limping. Players and coaches held their breath.

Bush said he just tweaked the ankle, and ran routes with Joique Bell and Mikel Leshoure after practice.

"I just planted wrong. Nothing I haven't been through before," Bush said. "I'm good. I didn't miss anytime, any reps."

He met a swarm of reporters on the edge of the practice field, waiting to hear how serious the injury was. When he revealed the lack of severity, talk shifted to his potential impact on the offense.

"I definitely see the opportunity to make an impact in this offense right away," Bush said.

So could he understand, then, the attention he got for a simple ankle turn, right?

"I understand, yes," he said with a laugh.
