Michael Bush almost healed

Dr. James R. Andrews wrote a letter saying that Michael Bush is '99 percent healed.' In the letter, which has mailed to all 32 NFL teams, Dr. Andrews goes on to say “I would estimate that Michael Bush will pick up in the NFL where he left off in college.”

Bush also performed a workout that was taped by his agent and sent to NFL teams. In the workout he ran, jumped roped and did squats to further prove his leg was healed.

RB Bush has second leg surgery

Louisville running back Michael Bush is in the hospital after having a second surgery on his leg. Bush, who broke the leg last September, had the old rod removed from his leg and a new one put in.

He will be unable to run for scouts before the NFL draft in April, but he is expected to be ready before NFL training camps begin.

This will undoubtedly drop his stock and he could fall to the second day.

Michael Bush will enter the NFL draft

Louisville running back Michael Bush will enter the NFL draft. A senior, Bush applied for a medical redshirt in case he decided to come back, but opted for the NFL instead.

Bush's senior season ended in the opener against Kentucky when he suffered a broken right leg. According to Bush, his rehabilitation is going well. However, he still walks with a limp and he doesn't know if he'll be able to run before the draft.

Petrino to the NFL, Brohm and Bush next?

Louisville coach Bobby Petrino has accepted a five-year, $24 million offer from the Atlanta Falcons to become their new coach. One has to assume that Louisville's Brian Brohm and Michael Bush are now going to enter the NFL draft.

Brohm, a junior, was thought to be headed back to Louisville for his senior season. However, he is unlikely to return for a new coach and to learn a new offense. If he enters the draft he'll be a first round pick, possibly in the top ten.

Bush, a senior, could return to Louisville with a medical redshirt. He broke his leg in the first game of the 2006 season and won't be completely healthy till March.

Running back group weak in 2007

The last two drafts have spoiled NFL teams with a bevy of future stars. However, 2007 will be a weak draft for future NFL running backs. There isn't a single senior RB projected as a first rounder, only juniors Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch are guaranteed first round picks.

Top seniors Michael Bush and Kenny Irons both had disappointing 2006 seasons. Bush missed the entire season after breaking his leg in the first game and could return to Louisville next season as a medical redshirt. If he enters the draft, he won't have much of a chance to workout for scouts. Doctors have said he won't be fully recoverd till early March.

Irons battled injuries and inconsistency all season. He'll need to show up big in the Senior Bowl, combine, and pro day to get himself back into the first round.

This group is a far cry from last year's Bush, Maroney, Williams, Addai, White and Drew.

Michael Bush Still Undecided

Louisville running back Michael Bush hasn't decided whether to seek a medical redshirt and return to college or enter the NFL draft. His senior season ended in the opener against Kentucky when he suffered a broken right leg. Louisville coach Bobby Petrino said Bush "is improving a lot" in his rehabilitation, "but he still does have a limp and a ways to go." Doctors have said he should be fully recovered by late February or early March.
