Saints Decide To Keep Bush Out vs. Seahawks

Reggie Bush will be inactive for the Saints as they host the Seahawks this afternoon. Bush was on the injury list as questionable as he recovers from a broken leg.

Thomas is also inactive today, but he has not ruled out the chance he could be ready for a Thanksgiving Day game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Chasers Warned: No Team Orders

NASCAR officials met with owners of the three drivers competing for the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship this morning to make it clear teammates and team orders that could influence the outcome would not be tolerated. Vice president of competition Robin Pemberton backed that up in the driver's meeting by saying, "Remember, 'have at it' does have its limits." Sunday's meeting with NASCAR included Joe Gibbs, Rick Hendrick and Richard Childress, whose drivers -- Denny Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick -- are separated by only 46 points heading into the finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway.
