Bush shelfed with possible torn meniscus

According to FOX Sports and The Associated Press, there is speculation that Reggie Bush has torn his meniscus during Sunday's loss to Carolina. Bush is scheduled to see Dr. James Andrew in Alabama and won't be making the trip to London with his Saints to face the San Diego Chargers at Wembley Stadium.

Even before today's game, there was already concern about swelling of the knee during weekly practices. It's a tough break for the former USC star who was having an outstanding season. Bush rushed for 55 yards on 9 carries, before limping from the field after a return. The loss of Bush had an immediate impact, as Coach Sean Payton said the team's offense became "one dimensional", and New Orleans was drubbed by Carolina 30-7.

As soon as there is confirmation as to the exact extent of the injury, I'll forward that information.
