Saints' Bush hurts right leg, doesn't return against Cowboys

NEW ORLEANS -- Saints running back Reggie Bush appeared to injure his right leg during Saturday's 24-17 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Bush limped off the field and went straight to the bench immediately after making a 16-yard reception during the second quarter. The injury occurred shortly after the catch, but Bush was able to limp out of bounds before being tackled.

Trainers surrounded Bush for a few minutes, then he got up and began stretching both legs on his own.

There was no immediate word from the Saints on the extent of the injury or whether Bush would be able to return. However, Lance Moore replaced Bush as punt returner after the Cowboys' next possession late in the first half.
