This is my first training camp writing for PFT, and I’ve learned a few tricks along the way to help save time while posting. One veteran move is to use a template for Reggie Bush’s minor injuries. It goes something like this:
“Saints running back Reggie Bush was seen limping after the Saints’ morning practice with a [blank] injury, sat out the team’s afternoon session, and coach Sean Payton says the injury isn’t serious.”
The paragraph can be dropped into posts a few times a week, and commenters will be too busy questioning Bush’s manhood to notice.
On this particular Thursday, Bush reportedly hurt his calf, not his oft-troubled knee. Payton said Bush could play if there was a regular season game today, although it’s unclear if he’ll participate in New Orleans’ preseason game Saturday.
Bush has managed to avoid any serious problems this preseason, but all the “nicks” will likely encourage Payton to limit Bush’s workload in an effort to have him finish the season for the first time in three years.
