Through two weeks, Bush has run for 241 yards. Only the Buffalo Bills' C.J. Spiller (292 yards) is ahead of him.
"It felt good, obviously," Bush said, via the South Florida Sun-Sentinel. "I'm not going to lie and say it doesn't. It's great to hear and know that the fans are there."
"We know what kind of running game we have and we know what we're capable of," said Bush, who finished with 172 yards on the ground. "So we felt like that's the foundation of our offense. We've got to be able to run the ball."
Bush is 27, and has never truly been a workhorse back in an NFL offense. His 216 carries last season represented a career high. Based on early usage, that might be changing in 2012.
Is Bush built for that type of punishment? Maybe this is the year he finally gets tested.
