Can Detroit Lions win without Reggie Bush?

Can the Lions win without Reggie Bush today at the snow bowl in Philadelphia?

Bush slipped in pre-game warmups on the snowy field and aggravated his calf injury which had kept him out of practice most of the week. Per reports, official word is that Bush is questionable to play.

That leaves the Lions with two active running backs — Joique Bell and Theo Riddick.

Mikel Leshoure was put on the inactive list 90 minutes prior to the game and cannot be activated.

In the one game that Bush missed this season, the Lions pulled out a win — 27-20 at the Washington Redskins.

Bush had injured his knee in the second quarter the previous week at Arizona. 
Without his services in the second half, the Lions fell to the Cardinals 25-21. When Bush left that game, he had 25 yards rushing and 44 receiving. The Lions amassed just 49 rushing yards that game — their lowest total this season.
