Reggie Bush expects to play against Raiders

The Times-Picayune - [Full Article]

After sitting out Saturday night's 38-14 exhibition victory over the Houston Texans with a strained calf muscle, Saints running back Reggie Bush said he is ready to return to action for this week's preseason game at Oakland.

And he expects to carry a heavy work load.

"It's just precautionary, taking it slow, building back to the season," Bush said of missing the Texans' game. "I'm sure I'll play quite a bit this game. I know I'm looking forward to it."

Bush strained a calf muscle in his right leg during post-practice conditioning drills Thursday morning, but he said the calf is fine. Bush suffered the injury while running pass patterns with quarterback Drew Brees following the Saints' two-hour workout against the Texans.
