Reggie Bush Becomes 1st RB In NFL History To Finish Season With Negative Rushing Yards


Last week, an interesting stat came to light involving Reggie Bush on pace to make NFL history. Today, he cemented his place as statitsically having the worst season by a running back in NFL history.

Just how bad was Bush’s season? After the loss to the Jets today, the once electrifying player finished the season with negative rushing yards, -3 to be exact. He becomes the first running back ever to reach such a mark (with 10-plus attempts).

He beats out the previous record, which was 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 needed only 3 yards Sunday to avoid the record, coming up 3 shy.

All in all, the Buffalo Bills paid $1.5 million to have three yards taken away from them.
