Bush likely won't return until after Saints' Week 10 bye

New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush was limited again at practice Friday and the team has listed him as doubtful for Sunday's game at Carolina.

Bush has not played since Sept. 20, when he fractured his fibula when he dove on his muffed punt and players piled on top of him in the fourth quarter of the Saints' 25-22 victory at San Francisco. He said Thursday he hoped to play Sunday but would leave the final decision up to the training and coaching staffs.

The Saints have a bye next week, so Bush could get two more weeks to heal if he does not play Sunday.

The offensive line and secondary received some good news, however, on the injury front. Tackle Jon Stinchcomb (knee) and center Jonathan Goodwin (groin) were listed as probable. Stinchcomb practiced for the first time this week on Friday.

Cornerbacks Tracy Porter (knee) and Jabari Greer (shoulder) both went through a full practice and are probable.
