METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Reggie Bush says he’ll try practicing on his healing right leg on Wednesday with the hope of playing against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night.

The Saints’ running back, who has missed five games since fracturing his right fibula in Week 2, says team doctors have told him he has healed enough to test his leg at full-speed.

Bush says his leg has responded well to strength and conditioning exercises with the training staff.

However, he cautions that he is not sure how he’ll feel when he tries to make sharp, lateral cuts typically required of him during games.

Bush says doctors have told him he’ll know he’s ready to play when he can tolerate those types of football moves.
