NFL Notebook

Associated Press
The NFL notebook …Reggie Bush’s injured knee will keep him from hopping across the pond next week.
Bush will not travel with the Saints to London following Sunday’s loss to Carolina, instead heading to Alabama to have his left injured knee examined.
Bush is expected to see Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, Ala. The Saints believe Bush has injured the meniscus in his left knee and won’t be able to play San Diego in Wembley Stadium next week.
– Just 14 plays into his return from a separated shoulder, Brodie Croyle suffered yet another injury, this time a sprained right knee that sent him off the field in the second quarter against the Tennessee Titans. The oft-injured Chiefs quarterback is likely done for the season with ligament damage.
– Another special teams star got hurt when Chicago Bears kick returner and wide receiver Devin Hester injured a quadriceps muscle in the third quarter against the Minnesota Vikings
– Rams running back Steven Jackson, who had 160 yards and three touchdowns in a 34-14 win over the Cowboys, pulled a quadriceps muscle in the fourth quarter just before coach Jim Haslett was planning to lift him.
– A jolting block by Pittsburgh receiver Hines Ward broke the jaw of Cincinnati linebacker Keith Rivers, likely ending his season.
– Steelers cornerback Bryant McFadden and safety Troy Polamalu got hurt on the same play. McFadden injured his arm. Polamalu lost his helmet while tackling running back Cedric Benson and was unsteady. Neither returned to the game.
