Reggie Bush will not be a part of the Saints push for the postseason Sunday when New Orleans faces Chicago.
The running back sat out of practice Friday and is now listed as out for the last game of the year.
Pierre Thomas is expected to make the start in Bush's place since Aaron Stecker is listed as questionable with a sprained toe.
Sunday is a must-win for the Saints to have any chance at playing another game this season.
Only one spot is left and if the Redskins beat the Cowboys, it belongs to them. If Minnesota wins and Washington loses, the Vikings remain alive. If both the Vikings and Redskins lose and New Orleans wins, the Saints will be headed to the postseason.
