Saints RBs Bush, Thomas Out vs. Steelers
METAIRIE, La. (AP) – Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas won’t play on Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Both Saints’ running backs missed practice on Friday and coach Sean Payton has listed both as out on Friday’s injury report.
Bush has not played since breaking a bone in his lower right leg in Week 2, but said earlier this week he hoped to test his leg at practice this week.
Bush wound up doing some conditioning work on his own but never practiced this week.
Thomas has been out since spraining his left ankle in Week 3 and also did not practice this week.
Payton says linebacker Scott Shanle (left hamstring) and cornerback Tracy Porter (left knee) would be game time decisions, while cornerback Jabari Greer (shoulder) was doubtful.
