will re-air the Philadelphia Eagles' 34-20 win over the Detroit Lions from Week 14 on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at 2 p.m. ET.

According to Lions radio network sideline reporter Tony Ortiz, Bush slipped on the field prior to the game and might have aggravated his injured calf.

Sideline reports said Bush would try to play, but he began the game on the sideline. The Lions called him questionable to return.

The Lions were down to just two running backs, Joique Bell and Theo Riddick. Mikel Leshoure was inactive.

In the snow, a hindered Bush would have been big -- relieving Matthew Stafford of pressure to put it up more than planned in the poor weather.
