Playing career

Bush was drafted by the Houston Oilers in the fifth round of the 1985 NFL Draft. As a rookie in 1985 he started 11 of 16 games recording three sacks. During his second season in 1986 he started the first three games of the season when an examination following an injury, revealed that he had a narrow spinal canal. This condition, not caused by play, made it too risky for him to continue playing.[1]
