Saints' Bush misses practice, but will play against Atlanta

New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush missed Friday's practice, but is listed as probable on the injury report for Sunday's game against Atlanta in the Louisiana Superdome. Bush made his first return to the field last week after missing the previous four weeks with a torn medial meniscus in his left knee. He struggled in his return, though, as Tampa Bay held him to three carries for no yards, five catches for 32 yards and two punt returns for minus-16 yards. “It was mainly just resting (Bush's knee),” Saints coach Sean Payton said. “He went this week more than he’s ever gone (since knee surgery). It was just backing off of it. He went through the walkthroughs and what not. He kind of kept it quiet. He was out of practice. He’ll play.” Fullback Mike Karney (knee) and linebacker Troy Evans (knee) were listed as probable for Sunday's game and the two players practiced all week.
