Bush skipping Saints' London trip to have injured left knee examined


Recommended Posts

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- New Orleans running back Reggie Bush will not travel with the Saints to London following Sunday's loss to Carolina, instead heading to Alabama to have his injured left knee examined.

Bush is expected to see Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala., coach Sean Payton said. The Saints believe Bush has injured the meniscus in his left knee and won't be able to play San Diego in Wembley Stadium next week.

"I think our plan is to have him evaluated in Birmingham, right from here, so he won't make the trip," Payton said.

Bush injured his left knee on a punt return late in the first half. He reversed field on his run, which ended when he stepped out of bounds on the Carolina sideline. He seemed to pull up a bit and favor his left leg after that.

Bush missed practice earlier this week with swelling in his left knee, but the Saints said the injury was not serious.

Bush had 55 yards on nine carries, caught one pass for 5 yards, and had a 3.5 average on three punt returns against Carolina.

Fox sports is also reporting that Reggie will need surgery on his meniscus, and his season could be in jeopardy.

As much as I think Bush is a garbage NFL running back, I dont want the guy hurt....hopefully his medial meniscus is OK.

That would be not be a good thing if it is indeed damaged. His lateral movement would suffer, if he even manages to come back this season at all.
