A league source tells us that the current thinking within the Saints organization is that running back Reggie Bush and starting center Jonathan Goodwin will miss four-to-six weeks due to knee injuries.
Bush has yet to have an MRI, so the extent of the damage isn’t known.  For now, the team believes he’ll miss four-to-six weeks.
The absence of Bush diminishes the league’s annual English holiday — the Saints play the Chargers in London next week.  NFLN reports that Bush won’t be making the trip.

    What is the bad karma you speak of? Remember it pertains to everyone.

    What the hell has karma got to do with anything?

    So the Saints don’t know the extent of the damage to Bush but he’s coming back in 4-6 six weeks whether he’s ready or not?

    They’re probably basing that timetable on a worst-case scenario based on sideline and locker room examinations. There are ways to isolate where the damage is on a preliminary examination, and from what I’ve heard about Bush, it’s the meniscus and I hope that’s all they find. No I’m not a doctor but I’ve been in the same situation and I’ve seen others in similar situations.

    I think it’s called an estimated timeline based on current knowledge of the injury. Once more knowledge becomes available, you know, through further examination, results of treatment and recovery, a new timeline will be communicated. He could even be placed on IR if needed.
