DAVIE, Fla. (AP) -- Once all glitz and glamour in Los Angeles and New Orleans, Reggie Bush is enjoying a reputation as a blue-collar running back eager to break tackles and shoulder the load while leading the Miami Dolphins out of the NFL wilderness.
Bush had a career-high 26 carries for 172 yards in last week's victory over Oakland, and on Wednesday he was chosen AFC offensive player of the week.
Bush won the 2005 Heisman Trophy at Southern Cal, then later relinquished the award because of a scandal involving the program. He helped the Saints win a Super Bowl but was considered an underachiever and was traded to Miami last year.
This spring he said he wanted to lead the NFL in rushing, and after two games it appears he might do just that.
