On Sunday, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen raved regarding the “stunning” explosiveness of fourth-year running back Reggie Bush.
On Monday, Bush was held out of practice due to swelling in his knee. Bush had microfracture surgery on the joint (but supposedly not the full-blown version of it) in December 2008.
Coach Sean Payton mentioned on Monday that Bush had a procedure in the “spring”; unless Payton’s timeline is simply a little off, it could be that Bush had two separate procedures.
don’t think it’s anything significant yet it’s significant
enough to where I don’t want it to become irritated and keep him out for
more than just a practice or two,” Payton said regarding Bush’s knee.
Payton also said that it has not yet been necessary to drain the knee.
It remains to be seen whether Bush participates in the afternoon session.
