Reggie Bush will reportedly miss at least six weeks with a broken leg suffered in the Saints’ Monday night game against the 49ers, but not the rest of the season. The team has not offered any official updates on his condition, but sources familiar with the injury confirmed a break of his right tibula.

He suffered the injury when recovering a muffed punt Monday night with 6:58 left in the game. The wind was howling at Candlestick Park and after muffing the catch, Bush was hurt during the ensuing scrum for possession when several players from both teams landed on top of the leg.

The injury caps off a tough week for Bush, who gave back his Heisman trophy earlier in the week amidst speculation the Heisman Trust was considering taking it. Bush scored the game’s first touchdown on a 6-yard pass from Drew Brees and finished the game with five carries for five yards and four receptions for thirty yards.
