Reggie Bush is happy to be rotated with Joique Bell in Joe Lombardi's Detroit Lions offense.

Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush has insisted that he is happy to be a part of new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi's side, even if he is used in a rotation system with Joique Bell.

Bush was a part of Lombardi's offense when the pair were at the New Orleans Saints, and he said that the idea of not overworking the running backs will benefit the Lions come the end of the season.

"We had a pretty good rotation going last [season], so, you know, we did some pretty special things with that," Bush told ESPN.

"It can only go up from there, even if the workload is less for both of us, that's only going to help us toward the end of the season, help us to stay healthy and probably play a little bit stronger and better toward the end of the season."

Last season was Bush's first with the Lions.
