Reggie Bush was supposed to be a spark to for the Buffalo Bills offense when he signed with the team this offseason. 15 games later, the result couldn’t be further than the expectations.
Bush is playing so bad, he’s on pace to finish the season having had the worst ever as a running back in NFL history.
Per Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune, Bush will become the first running back ever to finish a season with negative rushing yards on 10-plus attempts.
The current record for lowest total rushing yards by a running back stands at 4 yards, courtesy of Charlie Smith in 1971. Clarence Davis also had 4 yards on 14 carries in 1978, though he only played two games.
Bush finished with negative 8 rushing yards in the Bills’ loss on Saturday, which also knocked them out of the playoffs. The game put him in the negatives for the season. Bush needs 3 yards Sunday to avoid the record.
The last time he had a positive rushing total in a game was Week 14 when he had 4 yards. He’s had three games with negative yardage this season and just five with a positive total. And strangely enough, he has a rushing touchdown despite his minus-3 yards on the year.
Years later, it appears as if the Kardhasian curse is still in full effect for Reggie Bush.
