Update: Lovie Smith said Bush's role will be similar to that of Marion Barber's 2011 season, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Recommendation: "But as far as the role Michael is going into, it's a similar role. But Michael brings even more," Smith said. Bush will probably be used more in the passing game than Barber was, but if the roles remain similar, expect to see around 10 touches per game for Bush in a lot of short-yardage and goal-line situations during 2012. Sapping Matt Forte's fantasy potential.
