Reggie Bush has said that having to deal with injuries is part of playing in the NFL.
The 28-year-old told the team's official website: "We are no different than any other team, though. Dealing with injuries is just part of football. Everybody in the NFL has something at this point of the year. It's good to know our players will rise to the occasion when key players are out.
"It's also good that you know your team can step up and pick up the slack when some of our key players are down. We won in Washington when I had to sit out and we won last week when Calvin was limited.
"It is going to go up and down and you are going to have little things here and there. It is good that our team has been battle-tested and it's good to know that we have been able to handle the pressure."
The Lions face the Cincinnati Bengals tomorrow.
