METAIRIE, La. (AP)—Reggie Bush’s left knee needs further examination before he’ll be allowed back on the field for either of New Orleans’ final two games.
Noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews will look at images from Bush’s latest MRI, and coach Sean Payton said Saturday the team expects to have the results by early next week.
Bush was hurt when he was pushed out of bounds in the first half of Thursday night’s 27-24 loss in Chicago. He remained on the sideline, often wearing his helmet and standing up as if eager to keep playing, but Payton held him out after seeing him rush for no gain on the Saints’ opening drive of the third quarter.
