Dolphins RB Bush passes 1,000 yards rushing

Reggie Bush has gone over 1,000 yards rushing for the first time

in his career.

Bush, in his first season with the Miami Dolphins after five

with the New Orleans Saints, reached that milestone with an 8-yard

run in the first quarter of Saturday’s game against the New England

Patriots. That gave him 29 yards for the game and 1,002 for the

season, his first as a full-time running back.

His previous season high was 581 yards in 2007.

In his last game, Bush rushed for a career-high 203 yards on 25

carries in a 30-23 win over the Buffalo Bills. He’s gained at least

100 yards on the ground in each of his last three games and four

times this year.
