Saints Pro Bowler Brown could have sports hernia

Reggie Bush isn’t seriously injured, but another first-round pick by the Saints might be.

Left tackle Jamaal Brown, who is a lot more crucial to the team’s success than Bush, is sidelined indefinitely with a groin injury.

The team suspects Brown has a sports hernia, but Brown visited a specialist on Thursday to undergo further testing.  Saints coach Sean Payton said the evaluation has not yet happened.

Losing Drew Brees’ Pro Bowl blind side protector would be a huge blow to the Saints offense.  Brown’s play has been up and down in his career, but he’s a quality starter.

Brown’s backup, Zach Strief, is also out with a knee injury.  The team will likely use their third-string left tackle Jermon Bushrod against the Texans on Saturday.

Expect Drew Brees to hand the ball off a lot this weekend.
