Bush’s season in jeopardy

Posted by Mike Triplett, Staff writer December 07, 2007 1:55PM

The Saints learned Thursday night that tailback Reggie Bush suffered a torn posterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during last Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay, an injury that varies in severity.

Saints Coach Sean Payton said he is still holding out hope that Bush can play in Monday night’s game at Atlanta. But it’s also possible that Bush could miss several weeks, putting the remainder of his season in jeopardy.

“If you just study the history of PCL injuries, I know they vary with each player, but it is an injury that you come back from,” Payton said. “We’ll see. We’ll monitor where he’s at. You know, I’m still hopeful for this weekend’s game.”

Bush practiced fully Thursday, which adds to Payton’s optimism. But after that practice, Bush experienced some soreness. So the team performed an MRI, which revealed the ligament tear.

    I’ll try to look on the bright side.. Aaron Stecker needs to step up and maybe now we’ll see a little more of Pierre Thomas. I have high hopes for him!
