Dolphins to sit Bush against Jets
The New York Jets' slim playoff chances might have gotten a boost with the decision by the Miami Dolphins not to play running back Reggie Bush in the season finale.
Bush, according to the Miami Herald, will not play due to a sore knee with the Dolphins hosting the Jets and New York needing to win and have a number of other combinations work out in order to get to the playoffs.
Bush, whom the Dolphins traded for, finishes his best year as a rusher with 1,086 yards on just 216 carries and was one of the sparks of Miami's brief return to competitiveness after an 0-7 start.
Bush is the second key Dolphins player to be out of this game, as offensive tackle Jake Long was placed on injured reserve with a torn biceps suffered last week against New England.
