The name of Saints running back Reggie Bush did not appear on this week’s injury report.
But maybe it should have.
Rachel Nichols of ESPN reports that Bush has been suffering from the flu.
Players routinely are listed as having an “illness” when they have, you know, an illness. Even if they ultimately play.
And Bush plans to play.
“By Sunday you can guarantee I’ll be fine,” he told Nichols.
Still, he needs to be better than fine if he hopes to make a significant contribution to the effort to knock off the Vikings.
