NEW ORLEANS -- New Orleans Saints running back Reggie Bush reportedly suffered a broken right leg during Monday's game against the San Francisco 49ers.

Bush was hurt during the fourth quarter when he tried to recover his own muffed punt. As he fell on the football, a 49ers player crashed into his right leg. He tried to leave the field under his own power, but was assisted to the sideline and was then carted off the field.

"It was pretty windy, the ball was moving around a little bit when he punted it and at the last second it kind of shifted just enough for me to drop it," said Bush on Monday after the game. "I tried to recover it and someone took my leg out. I don't know what happened or how it happened, I just got taken out."

The Saints said Bush was scheduled to undergo tests on Tuesday, but the New Orleans Times-Picayune cited a league source in a report Tuesday morning as saying Bush suffered a fractured right fibula.

Bush, who left Candlestick Park on crutches, finished Monday's game with five carries for four yards and four receptions for 30 yards and a score in the 25-22 victory.
