Reggie Bush #25 of the New Orleans Saints warms up against the San Francisco 49ers during an NFL game at Candlestick Park on September 20, 2010 in San Francisco, California.


Reggie Bush was back in the lineup for the New Orleans Saints, and the running back looked a bit rusty after missing eight games because of a broken right leg.

The first pass thrown in Bush's direction bounced off his shoulder pads and helmet. He later dropped a likely touchdown and then fumbled on a punt return to set up a short touchdown for the Dallas Cowboys, though the Saints rallied to win 30-27 on Thursday.

"I don't like to think of myself as rusty at all, but maybe it is," Bush said. "That was just a mental error on my part. ... Those are things that we can't have and that they can get you beat. Next week, we'll get better."
