The New Orleans Saints are trying to get back in the right direction, and an injury to Reggie Bush is not what they need. Bush underwent an MRI exam on his left hamstring on Monday. During three prior days at the rookie camp, Bush was limited in his drills. However, at the moment, Saints head coach Sean Payton is not too concerned with the seriousness of the injury.

"It feels good, but obviously not 100 percent," said Bush. "That's why we're taking precaution."

Bush believes that he'll be at full capacity by the end of the week, in time for the team's full-squad minicamp in early June. Payton wants Bush to learn everything possible about the team's offensive system, because he can be something special right away.

"He's been able to get these walkthrough snaps and mentally he understands what we're trying to do. ... He's following along with the scripts," Payton said. "The last thing I want is something that all of a sudden goes from being not too big, to becoming a deal that, all of a sudden, he's not in minicamp," Payton said. "So I just want to make sure we're being smart and not being dumb. The good news is it's felt better. Just from talking to Reggie himself, I think it's something that's minor."

The Saints will operate with a powerful running attack this year in Deuce McAllister and Bush. Along with the addition of Drew Brees at quarterback, the Saints offense could potentially turn some heads.
