Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports reports since late July, when the Dolphins pulled off the trade to get RB Reggie Bush from the Saints, the talk had consistently been about Bush getting a chance to prove that he’s an every-down back and not just some hybrid specialty player.
That talk was still strong before the Dolphins played the Houston Texans on Sunday.
On Sunday, Bush gained a grand total of 21 yards. In two games, Bush has 17 carries for 56 yards, which is pretty much in line with his career numbers. Considering rookie Daniel Thomas(notes) had 107 yards on 18 carries in his debut Sunday, you can understand why Bush’s time as the fulltime back is probably over only seconds after it started – even if Bush still wants to hang on to the dream.
