Default FO: Torn Knee Ligament Could Force Bush Out for Season

Quote:
Reggie Bush admits that hes underperformed in 2007 (Mario Williams, on the other hand, is having a solid sophomore season), and now it looks like the former USC star could miss the final four games with a torn knee ligament. According to DVOA, Bush isnt just having a tough go of it, hes been awful, ranking last among the 47 backs with at least 75 rushes.

just a rumor though

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3145712

Quote:
New Orleans Saints tailback Reggie Bush will not require surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his left knee, but the second-year veteran almost certainly will not play Monday night at Atlanta, and sources told ESPN and ESPN.com that the former Heisman Trophy winner is likely to miss the rest of the season.



Saints coach Sean Payton said Bush will be listed as "questionable" for Monday on the official league report and said his availability will be a game-time decision.

"We'll monitor where he's at," Payton said. "I'm still hopeful for this weekend's game."

A source said, however, that it is "99 percent certain" Bush won't play against the Falcons.

With all the criticisms that are rightly directed towards the Texans on many points, SI has finally awakened to the possibility that maybe this one was a bit premature............(the rest of the article is well worth reading for its well organized supporting details/analysis)):

Can-miss prospect
Saints' Bush hasn't made a fool of Texans yet

Posted: Friday December 7, 2007 12:21PM; Updated: Friday December 7, 2007 12:21PM



No. 1 pick in 2006 Mario Williams has posted 8.5 sacks this season for Houston -- while also outplaying No. 2 draftee Reggie Bush.

Maybe the Texans were right after all.

The Texans were laughed at, mocked and ridiculed a couple Aprils ago, when they bypassed gifted Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush to draft workmanlike defensive end Mario Williams with the first pick in the draft. Nothing against Williams, but this was the Trail Blazers taking Sam Bowie over Michael Jordan.

Bush was a can't-miss talent, a once-in-a-lifetime player. He was going to revolutionize the running back position.

Almost two full years in, the Saints are still waiting.

While Williams closes in on his first Pro Bowl season in Houston -- with 8 sacks, he trails only Jared Allen of the Chiefs among AFC defensive ends -- Bush sputters along in New Orleans, looking less and less every week like a once-in-a-lifetime player.

More like the second coming of Larry Centers.

The Saints, who thought they lucked into a future Hall of Famer, are now trying to figure out how Bush became so ordinary and what to do with a guy who's essentially a high-priced role player on a 5-7 team.

BTW, if MRI shows an overt significant tear of the PCL, he is done for the season. If he or the team allows him to play, with any trauma to the leg (inevitable for a running back) the loss of stability (forward "drawer movement) of the knee will almost guarantee a major tear of the ACL. This combination would be one that he may find impossible to come back from this year.........or any other year.

Incredibly, the Texans' Williams actually owns a longer play this year than Bush -- his 38-yard fumble recovery for a touchdown is longer than any run, catch or return that Bush has managed.
Ahh...that one felt good.

Most likely, Adrian Peterson, Brian Westbrook and Marion Barber will represent the NFC in the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

That's OK. Maybe Mario Williams can send Bush a postcard
so the MW fans are finally coming out?

Glad to see Mario get the publicity he has been deserving. Tough break for Bush though. *no pun intended*
