Rosenfels Rosenhaus Rosenthal (cut me some slack — it’s late) pointed out on Tuesday, Saints tailback Reggie Bush returned to practice Tuesday after missing Monday with swelling in his surgically repaired knee.
A league source tells us that the Saints aren’t concerned that the knee will be a problem this year.
Unless, of course, Bush injures it again.
As he enters the fourth season of his NFL career, Bush is facing his last chance to fulfill the potential that made him the second overall pick in the draft. To date, the former USC star has been eclipsed by the guy whom Bush overshadowed in L.A. during their college years — UCLA’s Maurice Jones-Drew.
If Bush is ever going to become the guy he was supposed to be when he arrived on the scene in 2006, now is the time to do it.
