METAIRIE, La. (AP) -Reggie Bush, who missed part of practice on Wednesday with a bruised left shin, is still expected to play in Sunday's game at Carolina.
``We anticipate him being fine,'' coach Sean Payton said. ``It's something we'll be able to work through.''
Payton said Bush, who did not speak with reporters on Wednesday, was kicked in the shin during the Saints' 23-10 loss at Houston on Sunday.
The only player who missed practice is defensive tackle Brian Young, who hasn't played in three games because of a swollen left knee that required arthroscopic surgery.
Defensive end Charles Grant, who has missed two games because of a sprained left ankle, was back at practice. Also back to bolster the offensive line was left tackle Jammal Brown, who sat out Sunday's game after straining his left calf muscle in the first half of a loss to St. Louis two weeks ago.
