RB Michael Bush has been voted FedEx Ground NFL Player of the Week for games played on November 10-14. Bush totaled 242 yards from the line of scrimmage, including 30 carries for 157 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders 24-17 victory over the Chargers. His 242 yards from scrimmage marked the highest yardage total posted by a Raider in nearly 50 years.

Bush was selected from among three finalists in the Ground Category. The other FedEX finalists were RBs Chris Johnson of the Tennessee Titans and Maurice Jones-Drew of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bush was also named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week.
