49ers Rule Out RB Reggie Bush For Steelers Game, WR Bruce Ellington Added As Questionable

The San Francisco 49ers have now turned in their final injury report for their Sunday game at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers and it includes two offensive players.

Running back Reggie Bush (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Steelers after failing to practice all week. Bush reportedly won’t even travel with the team to Pittsburgh. The 30 year-old former first-round draft pick was injured in the first quarter of Monday night’s win over the Minnesota Vikings.

The 49ers also added wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) to their injury report as questionable on Friday after he failed to practice earlier in the day because of an ankle injury. Ellington played three snaps on offense Monday night against the Vikings and he registered two catches for 5 yards in that game. He also had an 85-yard punt return for a touchdown in that game wiped out by a penalty.

With Bush out Sunday, rookie running back Mike Davis figures to dress in his place. Additionally, undrafted rookie wide receiver DeAndrew White figures to dress in the place of Ellington should he wind up being inactive. Both Davis and White were inactive against the Vikings.
