Saints RB Bush still not ready to return

Saints RB Reggie Bush‘s return to the lineup will have to wait another week after the team declared him inactive for Sunday’s game against the Seahawks.

Saints coach Sean Payton said Saturday there was a “good chance” that Bush would play. But with Bush and Pierre Thomas (ankle) sidelined, the team again will turn to veteran Julius Jones and rookie Chris Ivory in the running game.

Bush hasn’t since played since Week 2, when he broke his right leg during a win over the 49ers.

Saints rookie CB Patrick Robinson also was ruled out Sunday after being limited in practice with an ankle injury.

For the Seahawks, WR Brandon Stokley (calf) is active despite being listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report. RB Michael Robinson (hamstring) and WR Golden Tate (ankle) also were doubtful, but they will not play.
