If you don’t like the latest report on Reggie Bush’s knee, we suggest waiting half a day for it to change.
Bush was unable to his finish his scheduled one practice a day Wednesday. He later returned with a slight limp and his knee wrapped in ice.
While the Saints say they aren’t concerned with Bush’s knee, perhaps they should be. It’s not a great sign when he can’t finish practices consistently.
This is a chronic knee problem, and the team was concerned enough to have Bush undergo an MRI two days ago, according to WDSU in New Orleans.
Bush said after practice he’s “fine.”
While we don’t want to overstate the importance of minor camp injuries, Bush’s struggles will serve to make the Saints cautious about overworking him.
Pierre Thomas is expected to lead the Saints in carries this season and it may not be close if Bush continues to show he can’t handle a big workload.
