Reggie Bush's knee is fine

METAIRIE, La. -- If you were worried about Reggie Bush's left knee, relax.

"The knee is fine," Bush said Wednesday night. "It's great. You saw me running."

Bush had just finished a practice session in which he participated fully. He did not participate in the morning session and that was the plan all along. But Saints fans had to endure some nervous moments after an Associated Press report said Bush had left the morning practice due to a setback.

That wasn't the case.

"I warmed up and ran through stretches with the team and then [went inside and] put ice on it," Bush said. "That was it, so I guess they suspected I came out, but I never even started practice."

Bush was seen going into the locker room and coming back out on the field with his knee wrapped in ice. He stood on the field and watched practice and took the ice off after a while. The Saints have been giving Bush periodic practices off.

"That's been the protocol since Day 1," Bush said.
