The Lions signed Bush as a free agent before last season and  the elusive running back ran for 1,006 yards, the second-highest total of his career. But so far this season, Detroit's running game has been quiet, and that's something the Lions hope to change when they host Green Bay on Sunday.(AP Photo/Mike McCarn, File)
