NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush appears to have injured his right leg.

Bush limped off the field and went straight to the bench immediately after a 16-yard reception against the Dallas Cowboys on Saturday night.

The injury occurred shortly after the catch, but Bush was able to limp out of bounds before being tackled.

Trainers surrounded Bush for a few minutes, then he got up and began stretching both legs on his own.

There was no immediate word from the Saints on the extent of the injury or whether Bush would be able to return, but Lance Moore replaced Bush as punt returner after Dallas' next possession late in the first half.
