The Miami Dolphins will have Reggie Bush this week, but the running back is not 100 percent.

Reggie Bush revealed to the media on Wednesday that he was not at 100 percent. The Miami Dolphins running back is expected to be in uniform this week when his team hosts the St. Louis Rams. If Bush is at all slowed by a lingering knee injury it gives the Rams defense a break, but still something to be concerned with given their up and down play against the run.

Bush got off to a red hot start, rushing for 172 yards against the Oakland Raiders in Week 2. He averaged 5.9 yards per carry through his first three games. Since then, the 27-year old former Kardashian has come down to Earth just a bit, averaging 3.2 yard per carry over his last two games. He did find the end zone last week in a win against the Bengals, but had just 48 yards on 19 carries.

Rookie running back Lamar Miller is line for the backup role behind Bush. Daniel Thomas is still dealing with a head injury that the team will not call a concussion.

The Rams defense is allowing an average of 117 rushing yards per game, including a 118-yard performance by Marshawn Lynch in Week 4. Last week, against the Cardinals, the Rams allowed just 45 net rushing yards.
