Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush said he is playing Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, despite not practicing on Friday and walking around the team's indoor practice field with an ice pack on his upper right leg.
"I'm playing Sunday," he said, via the Detroit News. "That's all you guys need to know."
It was not known that Bush had an injury to his upper right leg.
"I ice everything," he said. "If it needs ice, I put it on there."
Coach Jim Schwartz was also coy about why Bush did not practice, but said players who practice Wednesday and Thursday are usually available for games.
"If we have guys that don't practice on Wednesday and Thursday, most of them are injury related," Schwartz said.
Rookie Theo Riddick practiced in Bush's place during the skeleton drills.
Also, right tackle Corey Hilliard (knee) has not practiced this week and will probably be ruled out for Sunday. Tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring), receiver Calvin Johnson (knee), left tackle Riley Reiff (hamstring), defensive tackle Andre Fluellen (concussion), cornerback Rashean Mathis (groin) and linebacker Ashlee Palmer (ankle) practiced Friday after being limited Thursday.
