NFL running back Reggie Bush’s strained left calf is not believed to be a serious injury, according to CSNBayArea.com.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula even issued a reassuring statement saying that he does not think Bush’s injury will keep him on the sidelines for very long.

Even so, Bush is not expected to be on the field for the 49ers on Sunday, Sept. 20. The 49ers will be playing their first road game of the 2015 regular season when they take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bush strained his calf on Monday, Sept. 14 when the 49ers were hosting the Minnesota Vikings. During the season-opener, Bush carried the ball twice for just 8 yards. He was taken out of the game early, suffering his injury in just the first quarter. The 49ers would go on to defeat the Vikings with a final score of 20-3.

After his team’s victory, Bush had the following to say via Twitter.com:

“Great team win tonight[.] Guys played strong and aggressive all night[.] It was fun to watch[.] Can’t wait to get healthy and back on the field[.]”

Bush signed a one-year deal with San Francisco in March 2015. Prior to joining the 49ers, he was a member of the Detroit Lions. Throughout his career, Bush has also played for the Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints.

Reggie Bush was born on March 2, 1985. He is from Spring Valley, Calif. He attended the University of Southern California before turning professional in 2006. He is 30 years old.
