Head Coach, QB talk about playing without Bush
New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and QB Drew Brees met with the media at today's practice. Both of them discussed the effect the absence of RB Reggie Bush due to a fibula injury as well as the challenges that the Atlanta Falcons pose. Below is a transcript


Sean Payton


Opening Statement:

“With today’s injury report, Anthony Waters (hamstring) did not practice; Reggie Bush (leg) did not practice; Randall Gay (concussion) did not practice; Usama Young (quad) did not practice. Zach Strief (knee) was limited and Chris Ivory (knee) was limited. We signed running back Ladell Betts and released running back DeShawn Wynn and then practice squad-wise, we re-signed fullback Jed Collins and released quarterback Sean Canfield. The schedule was first and second down; a little bit abbreviated but nonetheless our normal Wednesday type of practice, just later in the afternoon.”



Having let DeShawn Wynn go, does that indicate that Chris Ivory is further along than he has been? Do you expect him to play on Sunday?

“He was limited and he hasn’t been limited if we’re looking at his progress, and with the way he moved around today he looked pretty good.”



What’s the latest on Reggie Bush?

“He has a fibula fracture and we’re looking ballpark at probably four-to-six weeks, depending on how quickly it heals.”



How does Bush being out change what you do offensively?

“There obviously are some nuances that are different in regards to personnel groupings but if you go back and look – not just with Reggie, but with a few of the offensive players – periodically we’ve had to play without guys and you adjust your personnel and you put the plan together accordingly. That’s what we’ll do. We’ve had to do it before. It changes the roles for some players as well.”

True but their thirdstringer had a huge game last weekend. The falcons have a dangerous offence and it might turn into a shoot out.

I've said repeatedly that Atlanta is going to be tough and that we had better take care of business. This is the week that the offense starts clicking.
