Bush recorded 12 tackles (11 solo) in Sunday's 28-10 loss to the Ravens.
The first-round draft pick ended the season with a team-high 12 tackles - a personal best for the rookie linebacker. Playing in all 16 games, Bush finished the 2019 season with a team-high 109 tackles, including a sack. He also had two interceptions, one forced fumble and four fumble recoveries -- one of which he returned for a touchdown. Look for Bush to add to his highlight reel in 2020.
Bush made five tackles (three solo) in Sunday's 16-10 loss to the Jets.
Bush has not logged more than seven tackles since Week 5 after making eight or more in four of his five games up to that point. Nevertheless, he needs just three more to reach 100 on the season.
Bush tallied four solo tackles in Sunday's 17-10 loss to the Bills.
Bush has now recorded less than six tackles in four of the last six games. The rookie linebacker played 83-percent of the Steelers' defensive snaps, so his lack of production is not due to a lack of playing time. He will look to bounce back against the Jets in Week 16.
Bush was credited with two solo tackles in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.
It was Bush's worst performance of the season in terms of tackles. He has made less than six in only three games this season, but all of them have come in the last five weeks.
Bush recorded seven tackles (five solo) in Pittsburgh's 20-13 win over Cleveland on Sunday.
Entering the contest, Bush led the Steelers in tackles and now has 86 on the season. The rookie linebacker has been an integral part of a defense that has held opponents to 13 points or less in three of the last four games. In Week 14 Pittsburgh will face an Arizona offense that averages over 21 points per game but was held to just seven points in Week 13.
Bush had three tackles (two solo) in Sunday's 17-12 win over the Rams.
The Pittsburgh defense dominated all game, limiting the Rams offense to 88 rushing yards and no touchdowns, though it was a relatively quiet game for Bush. The three tackles were his fewest in a game after he recorded seven or more in every other game this season. He still leads the team with 69 tackles and will look to contain Cleveland running back Nick Chubb -- second in the league with 919 yards rushing -- in check in Week 11. Pittsburgh held Chubb to 65 yards on the ground in a 33-18 win last season and allows the fifth and sixth fewest fantasy points to opposing running backs in standard and PPR scoring formats respectively.
Bush had seven tackles (four solo), an interception and a fumble recovery for a touchdown in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Chargers.
The rookie linebacker added to his highlight reel by forcing turnovers on consecutive first-quarter drives. Bush started the scoring when he grabbed a Melvin Gordon fumble and went nine yards to give the Steelers a 7-0 lead. On the next possession, Bush intercepted Philip Rivers, and seven plays later, James Conner scored to make it 14-0. Bush now has two interceptions, four fumble recoveries and a sack to go with his team-leading 52 tackles and is a must-start in IDP formats after Pittsburgh's Week 7 bye.
Bush had eight tackles (five solo) and an interception in Sunday's 26-23 overtime loss to the Ravens.
The rookie earned his first NFL interception, grabbing a Lamar Jackson pass intended for Nick Boyle deep in Pittsburgh territory, and continues to dominate on defense with a team-leading 45 tackles through five games. Bush is a solid fantasy option in IDP formats.
Bush recorded nine tackles (seven solo), a sack and a pass defensed in Monday's win over the Bengals.
Bush arguably had his best performance in the NFL to date as the rookie recorded his first career sack. Bush played well against both the run and pass and recorded three tackles for loss overall. Through the first quarter of the season, he now boasts a team-high 37 tackles.
Bush totaled 11 tackles (nine solo) with two fumble recoveries in Sunday's 24-20 loss to San Francisco.
Pittsburgh had four takeaways, including the two fumble recoveries by Bush, but could only manage a 6-3 halftime lead before dropping its third game this season. The rookie linebacker leads the Pittsburgh defense with 29 tackles and three fumble recoveries through three games and has been one of the few bright spots in an otherwise dreadful start to the season. The Steelers will look for their first win of 2019 in Week 4 against the equally awful Bengals.
Bush had seven tackles (three solo) and a fumble recovery during Sunday's home loss to the Seahawks.
Bush made a huge play for the team late in the second quarter, when he scooped up a fumble and brought the ball deep into opposing territory. The rookie now has a total of 18 tackles through his first two games and got a bump in snaps on defense to 63, up from the 53 he saw in Week 1. He and the Steelers' defense will face a deceptively tough match-up on the road against the 49ers in Week 3.
Bush totaled 11 tackles (seven solo) in Pittsburgh's 33-3 loss to New England on Sunday.
The rookie linebacker led the defense in tackles and was one of the few bright spots in an otherwise horrible game for the Steelers. This was their first Week 1 loss since 2015, also against the Patriots, and they will need to play much better in their home opener against Seattle in Week 2 if they want to avoid their first 0-2 start since 2013.
Bush (shoulder) notched one tackle during Sunday's preseason win over the Titans.
Bush didn't match the 10-tackle standard he set during Pittsburgh's first preseason matchup versus the Buccaneers, but he does appear clear of his shoulder injury. The rookie first-round pick appears fully on track for the regular-season opener.
Coach Mike Tomlin said Bush didn't suit up for Saturday's preseason win versus the Chiefs due to a shoulder injury, Brian Batko of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Bush was all over the field in his pro debut last Friday, racking up 10 tackles against the Buccaneers. Tomlin didn't elaborate on the severity of the injury, but Bush could be held out of the Steelers' next two games to make sure the 2019 first-rounder is as healthy as possible for the regular season.
Bush totaled 10 tackles (seven solo) in Pittsburgh's 30-28 preseason win against Tampa Bay on Friday.
Making his first appearance in a Steelers uniform, the first-round draft pick led the team in tackles, all of which came before halftime. It's only the first game of the preseason but it is exciting to watch, and more efforts like this could have Bush challenging Mark Barron for a starting spot on defense.
The Steelers selected Bush in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 10th overall.
Bush might be a bit undersized at 5-foot-11, 234 pounds, but it's difficult to overstate how athletic he is. Bush burned up the combine to the tune of a 4.43-second 40-yard dash to go along with a 40.5-inch vertical, 124-inch broad jump, and 11.16 agility score. Agility drills aside, those are plus numbers by even cornerback standards. Although Bush didn't match the tackle volume of fellow Devin and linebacker Devin White, their proximity in draft placement is a testament to their many overlapping qualities. Pittsburgh didn't trade up from the 20th pick to ease Bush into the game plan - he's a threat to secure a three-down role even by Week 1. Vince Williams and Jon Bostic have coverage limitations that perhaps played a role in Pittsburgh's specific fondness for Bush and his unmatched ability to cover ground, so this looks like a plug-and-play situation. He's very much on the mainstream IDP radar in the meantime, and if he closes in on a three-down role then he could prove a standout producer at the position even as a rookie.
