The good news is the New Orleans Saints won on Monday Night Football. The bad new is they've lost running back Reggie Bush for at least six weeks according to ESPN. Oh and the Saints failed to cover the -6 spread — that's bad luck for some of you bettors out there.
Bush was fielding a punt in the Saints 25-22 win over the San Francisco 49ers Monday night. Unfortunately, he bobbled the catch, dove for the ball, and in the pileup had his legs were trampled. The former USC star couldn't put weight on his right leg when he emerged.
"I'm just trying not to think the worst and just try to stay as positive as I can in this situation," Bush said. "That's all you can do, hope for the best."
It's been a brutal start to Bush's 2010 NFL season. USC recently erased him from their history books after it was revealed that he was getting illegal handouts in college, then he had to give back his 2005 Heisman trophy, and now this. Maybe he should have stuck with Kim Kardashian after all.
Bush was seen on crutches after the game.
