NEW ORLEANS (AP) -Saints running back Reggie Bush will not play Monday night in Atlanta because of a knee injury.
He had been listed as questionable after an MRI this week indicated a partially torn left knee ligament. The team Saturday did not comment about Bush's prospects for the rest of the season.
Bush became the Saints' featured running back when a knee injury ended Deuce McAllister's season in the third week. Bush has scored six touchdowns with 581 yards rushing and 417 yards receiving.
With Bush out, Jamaal Branch, Aaron Stecker and rookie Pierre Thomas will be the running back. Thomas returned to practice Friday following a kidney bruise.
The Saints (5-7) have a slim chance at an NFC wild-card spot.
