Lions’ Rookie Abdullah Wants to Be Every Down Back


When you look at the way the Lions used Reggie Bush last season, do you see yourself being used that way or more of an every-down back?

I’m going to do whatever they ask me to do, but I think I’m an every-down back. A lot of guys want to put me in the category of third-down back. For those who say that, I ask them to turn on my film. I’ve never been that kind of player. I’ve never been a person who is just serviceable, who catches the ball out of the backfield, which I can do, and I feel I can do really well. But I can do a lot of things on first or second down as well, in my opinion.
