    Short week means lots of time in ice tub

    Typically, Reggie Bush’s body doesn’t feel right until days after a game.“In a normal week,” the Dolphins running back said, “your body usually doesn’t start to feel good until about Friday, Saturday.”
    So imagine how his body will feel when the Dolphins take the field at Buffalo tomorrow night. The Thursday night game is one of those necessary rigors of the NFL. But it’s hell on your body.
    The consensus advice from the Dolphins lockerroom for getting through the short week: live in the ice tub, get a massage, do lots of stretching, stay off your feet, compress your film study.
    But it still won’t be easy playing on Thursday. Lots of players agreed with Bush. They said it’s days before they recover from a game.
    Wide receiver Jabar Gaffney said it’s Friday. Defensive tackle Paul Soliai said Thursday or Friday. Left tackle Jake Long said Wednesday. Center Mike Pouncey is a Friday guy. And he’s not ashamed to admit it.
    “I ain’t gonna lie to you,” he said. “I don’t start feeling good until Friday.”
    Now they have to play on the fourth day. So, adjustments are made.

    I guess it good for Bush that he missed most of last Sundays game then.
