While the Bears had an injury scare with rookie RB Matt Forte on Thursday night, the Saints might not be as fortunate with an apparent injury to RB Reggie Bush.
Forte left Thursday’s 27-24 overtime win over the Saints during Chicago’s first drive with a right toe injury, but after missing most of the first half, was able to return to action during the second half. He finished with 34 yards rushing and a touchdown on 11 carries, plus five receptions for 29 yards.
Bush was held out the majority of the second half with what appears to be a left knee issue. He exited the game late in the second quarter, and had trainers checking on his left knee on the sidelines. He had just one carry during the second half as the Saints went with Pierre Thomas, who finished with 146 total yards and a touchdown. Bush missed four games this season after surgery on the same knee.
