Reggie Bush, former Heisman holder and all-purpose Saints star, left the fourth quarter of Monday's game with a leg injury after trying to recover a muffed punt.
The team has yet to release information relating to what exactly is wrong with Bush, but he was spotted by cameras leaving Candlestick Park on crutches; certainly that's not a good sign for anyone.
ESPN's Coleen Dominguez reported following the game that Bush could miss up to six weeks with a knee injury and NewOrleans.com cites a source indicating that Bush broke a bone in the injured leg, but that the injury will not require surgery.
If that's the case, it's a tremendous blow to the defending champions -- despite Bush's inability to ever become a full-fledged running back, he's one of the most versatile weapons on the team and the perfect compliment to Sean Payton's offense.
Additionally, a six week timeline for a knee injury would at least open up the possibility for Bush's injury to be more significant.
