In a rivalry game where the Miami Dolphins can play spoiler to the New York Jets, the Dolphins will be without rejuvenated running back Reggie Bushin Week 17.

Bush missed his third-straight practices Friday, and therefore has been ruled out of the game.

Bush downplayed the knee soreness and is walking without a limp, but at least one beat writer categorized the injury as a “sprain.”

With not even the “Suck for Luck” sweepstakes to play for it appears the Dolphins are playing it safe.

Despite missing the final game of the season Bush has nothing to be ashamed of. Once considered a flop in the NFL Bush finished with a career high 1,086 yards on 216 carries in 15 games. It appears Reggie can run in this league after all.

Maybe ridding yourself of a Kardashian isn’t such a bad idea.

Betting Analysis: This puts a giant wrench in the plans of any bettors thinking Dolphins were going to cover the -3 spread at home on Sunday. With Bush getting consistent yardage Miami has been a money maker, covering the spread in eight of its last nine games. Last week they almost dethroned the mighty New England Patriots, jumping out to a 17-0 lead, before Tom Brady went hall-of-fame on them in the second half.

With Bush out rookie runner Daniel Thomas will get the feature role. Thomas has been solid in his rookie year, lacking the explosiveness of Bush in the backfield.
