Could this be an early storyline for this season’s version of Hard Knocks? Miami Dolphins starting running back Reggie Bush has been a no-show at offseason workouts. This would’t be much of a story if the team wasn’t attempting to switch over to a new offensive philosophy under new head coach, and former Green Bay Packers assistant, Joe Philbin. Here’s the report from the Miami Herald:
Moments after Dolphins coach Joe Philbin announced the team would appear on HBO’s Hard Knocks, he deflected a question on the whereabouts of the Dolphins roster’s biggest celebrity, running back Reggie Bush. Bush was absent from Tuesday’s organized team activity workout. So was quarterback David Garrard, but he was dealing with tropical storm damage to his Jacksonville home.
Asked about Bush, Philbin said, “I don’t want to comment, I will talk about anyone who was here and what they did, but I am not going to talk about guys who were not here.”
According to Bush’s Twitter account, he spent Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas. His last tweet Monday, from 8:08 p.m.: “Vegas is the devil! lol”. Attempts to reach Bush’s agent throughout Tuesday failed.
