Saints hopeful of Reggie Bush return
Bush, who's missed eight games since fracturing his right fibula, is listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis this week.
Payton says it was tough to gauge whether Bush is 100 percent because the Saints did not practice at full speed this week, opting instead for light workouts and walkthroughs during the shortened week.
