The Saints will be without their punt returner and explosive utility back this Sunday against the Falcons. Reggie Bush will miss the Saints’ next four to six games.
Reggie Bush was trampled while diving to recover a botched punt return last night in San Francisco, with his left leg bending beneath a very large Niner. He attempted to walk off the field under his own strength, but crumpled to the turf after a couple steps.
In six career games against the Falcons, Bush has scored five touchdowns and averaged 64.9 yards from scrimmage. He was New Orleans’ third-leading rusher and fourth-leading receiver last year, though he had been higher on both lists so far this season. If he’s out for only four games, Bush will miss three division games.
