Saints bring back RB Ladell Betts, waive Wynn

The New Orleans Saints have brought back veteran running back Ladell Betts, who the club had released after the preseason.

Saints spokesman Greg Bensel says the club re-signed Betts on Wednesday, two days after running back Reggie Bush broke his right leg during New Orleans’ victory at San Francisco on Monday night.

Betts, who played eight years for Washington, is trying to come back from a serious left knee injury last season. He played in two preseason games with the Saints, rushing nine times for 53 yards and making five catches for 24 yards.

The Saints also waived reserve running back and special teams player DeShawn Wynn. Wynn is eligible for the practice squad and could be re-signed if he clears waivers.
