Reggie Bush was among four players who sat out of practice Friday for the Lions, but his absence was simply precautionary and he's listed as probable for Sunday's game vs. the Dallas Cowboys.

Bush practiced in full Wednesday and Thursday, which are the two primary practices during the week for the Lions, when they implement the week's game plan.

"If we have guys that don't practice on Wednesday and Thursday, most of them are injury related," head coach Jim Schwartz said after practice Friday.

The Lions starting running back wasn't listed on the injury until Friday. He had his right knee wrapped with ice during the portion of practice open to the media.

Bush is the only player in the NFC to have at least 400 rushing yards (426) and 300 receiving yards (305).

Tackle Corey Hilliard (knee) and receiver Nate Burleson (forearm) missed the entire week of practice and both have been ruled out for Sunday.

Tackles Jason Fox (knee) and Riley Reiff (hamstring) are both questionable, but it would be a bit of surprise if neither player was active Sunday after practicing at least in a limited fashion all week.

Expect Reiff to assume his left tackle spot and Fox to start at right tackle, but we'll have to wait until 90 minutes before kickoff for that to be confirmed.

Joining Bush as players probable to play on Sunday are: safety Louis Delmas (knee), defensive tackle Andre Fluellen (concussion), Calvin Johnson (knee), Rashean Mathis (groin), linebacker Ashlee Palmer (ankle), tight end Brandon Pettigrew (hamstring) and running back Theo Riddick (concussion).
