Bush said he expects to play against Bucs

Monday, 5 p.m.

By Mike Triplett
Staff writer

Saints tailback Reggie Bush said he expects to play Sunday at Tampa Bay, but he probably will miss practice time this week after re-injuring his left ankle in last Sunday’s 35-22 loss to Baltimore.

“Oh yeah, I’ll be ready,� said Bush, who hobbled off the field during the fourth quarter after being tackled by Ravens linebacker Bart Scott. “I’ll probably take this week off, maybe, and just try to get myself 100 percent for Tampa.

“I’m just going to do what I can (in practice). The main thing is to get ready for Tampa Bay. I plan on doing whatever the coaches and trainers want to do.�

Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed

RE: Bush said he expects to play against Bucs

I didn't like his "my ankle has been sore all season" quote.
Sounds like an excuse.
I want more from my Bush.
Man, I haven't said that one in a while.

I hope he is ready to play Sunday, we need some flash

Why the Hating?
All things considered, he is still a ROOKIE!
A Rookie with imho too many expectations on his shoulders.
He will be one of the Greats.
Give the dude time.

I think he's doing ok for a rookie, especially one that everyone seems to be keying on. I think, if he has a problem, it's that he expects too much of himself and trying too hard and thinking too much. He justs needs to relax and have some fun, if you can have fun with 11 neanderthals trying to kill you. As for his ankle, it's not unusual that they play that way considering the nature of the game and that the Saints play on that carpet covered asphalt. He'll be fine.

Rooks these days are thrown to the lions pretty much because they have no choice, peyton, eli, ryan leaf,vince young are all rooks as well as Ricky that played rookie year becaus ethey had no choice. Reggie has a great teacher to learn from right? So why not have Deuce teach him? I mean it does make sense to do a trail and error theory with Reggie it's just that it's starting to hurt the team in the run game. But we know Reggie has potential and he shouldn't get discourage but hell Decue is still on the team too and we did him a fat pay-day to be a Saint forever so guys think about it Deuce is and has to play the whole game. We will not quit, we will not faulter we will succeed

When I wake up in the morning I piss BLACK AND GOLD!

Deuce and Reggie have totally different running styles. I doubt Reggie can learn much from him. It's just a matter of being on the field in game situations and figuring out what works and what doesn't. Look how long it's taken a back like Tiki Barber. He's just now reaching his full potential in his retirement year.

No, it sounds like he's downplaying the injury.
