Reggie Bush is back for the New Orleans Saints.

The running back was active and listed as the starter Thursday against Dallas after missing eight games with a broken right leg.

Bush had been listed as questionable after practicing on a limited basis during a short week of light team workouts before the Saints' first Thanksgiving Day game. He got hurt Sept. 20, the second week of the season, while recovering his muffed punt at San Francisco.

Cowboys running back Felix Jones, who had also been listed as questionable with a hip injury, was active.


Running backs Ladell Betts (sprained neck) and Pierre Thomas (ankle) were inactive for the Saints, as were tight end Jeremy Shockey (rib) and safety Darren Sharper (hamstring).
