Report: Saints without Bush, Ellis Sunday at Tampa

The New Orleans Saints are headed to Tampa and Reggie Bush and Sedrick Ellis are not with the team as both players will remain home with knee injuries, the Associated Press reported.

Bush missed practice this week with swelling in his left knee. He scored two touchdowns in the team’s victory last week at St. Louis. This will be the first game this season that Bush sits out. He missed eight games over the last two seasons. Pierre Thomas will likely start for New Orleans.

Ellis has been sidelined with a sprained right knee for four weeks now. He was listed as questionable, and returned to practice on a limited basis this week.

The good news is that both players are expected to be at practice next week.
