    Louisville running back Bush to enter NFL draft

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville running back Michael Bush will enter the NFL draft in April rather than return to the Cardinals next season.

    Bush, who announced his decision on Tuesday, broke his right leg in Louisville's season-opener against Kentucky on Sept. 3 and hasn't played since. A senior, Bush applied for a medical redshirt in case he decided to come back, but opted for the NFL instead.

    "I loved my time here at U of L, but I think it's time for me to move on," Bush told reporters.

    Bush said coach Bobby Petrino's decision to leave the team was a factor in his decision. Petrino resigned Sunday to become head coach of the NFL's Atlanta Falcons.

    "When coach Petrino signed that deal, I didn't really want to play with nobody else," he said.

    WE REALLY NEED TO LOOK DEEP INTO THIS KID and would be an a hell of a pick up with the 15th pick. Boy, we got ourselves a real tempting problem here.

    The dude is coming off an injury and basically didn't play at all last season, I doubt he goes in the first round!

    I find it kind of odd that since he didn't play at all that he's not coming back for 1 more year to try and improve his status in the draft. he's a helluva player though but he won't go as high as he could have I dont think.

    That's a good point TG... I think had his coached stayed like he had said he was going too then Bush probably would have returned for one more year. Since his coach left though it means he'' have to learn a whole new system and he could have a bad year and hurt his stock even more I think when it comes down to he's just trying to cash in on an NFL deal before he gets hurt again... IMO

    We have other more immediate needs. Do not need Bush.
