Safety Malcolm Jenkins helped erase a critical Reggie Bush turnover, earlier, to help the New Orleans Saints prevail, 30-27, over the Dallas Cowboys, on Thursday. John DeShazier, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Reggie Bush's leg held up fine Thursday, his broken fibula apparently healed. It was his hands that seemed fractured against the Dallas Cowboys.

A dropped pass that likely would've gone for a touchdown and a fumbled punt that led to one for Dallas cost the Saints 11 points and spoiled his much-anticipated return after eight games.
