Reggie Bush inactive for Saints vs. Patriots

The New Orleans Saints will be without running back Reggie Bush for tonight’s game against the New England Patriots.

Bush, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury, is on the Saints’ list of inactive players. Bush’s absence will be felt in the running game (he’s third on the team in rushing yards and fourth on the team in receptions) and on special teams, where he’s the team’s primary punt returner.

The Saints will also be without cornerbacks Jabari Greer and Tracy Porter, which is good news for Tom Brady, Randy Moss and Wes Welker.

The Saints’ other inactives are wide receiver Lance Moore, kicker Garrett Hartley, fullback Kyle Eckel, linebacker Jonathan Casillas and defensive tackle DeMario Pressley.
