Reggie Bush shows support for Eric Garner before Lions vs. Bucs [Photo]


Add Detroit Lions’ running back Reggie Bush among the names of professional athletes showing support for the protests that have sprouted following grand jury decisions in cases regarding police force in Ferguson, and Long Island.

Reggie Bush on why he made a statement via his warm up:

“I’ve always been the kid who is reserved and stays out of stuff like that, but I just felt like these last couple weeks, I’ve been really upset about what’s happening from a police standpoint,” Bush told after the game.

“I don’t know all the details or facts with the Ferguson issue, or the Eric Garner issue, but I know there’s some form of injustice that’s going on. And it really affected me.”

Why did it hit Bush so hard?

“I don’t really have an answer why it affected me so much. It just did, to see that,” Bush said. “It’s just really unfortunate, and so I thought that would be my way of protesting a little bit.”


Reggie wasn’t the only athlete on the gridiron showing support, Cleveland Browns Johnson Bademosi did also.

The two join Derrick Rose and members of the St. Louis Rams who have brought the issues to the National TV sports stage.
