Chicago Bears running back Michael Bush says he wants to show Bears coach Marc Trestman he is more than a short yardage running back.
“It’s just a matter of time. I got to wait my turn and be patient," Bush said. “Just keep showing them in practice that I can be more than just a short yardage, goal line guy.
Bush joined “Inside The Huddle” on Comcast SportsNet Tuesday morning to recap the Bears’ 40-23 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The five-year veteran also gave his take on Jay Cutler’s hit on Steelers' safety Robert Golden.
“That’s a tough quarterback right there. He knew what we needed and that kept us in the game,” Bush said. “It lit a match under everybody so we enjoyed it.”
He went on to say that the hit improved Cutler’s image.
“To me, it sends a message to the world to what type of person and player he is," Bush said. "You might give him one the about his attitude but Jay loves football.”
In closing, Bush shared his thoughts on defensive tackle Henry Melton’s injury.
“Anytime a guy goes down like that holding his knee and the cart has to come out get him, it’s never a good thing," Bush said.
The Bears take on the Lions this Sunday at noon.
