The New Orleans Saints remain snake bitten in the secondary.

Saints safety Rafael Bush tore a pectoral muscle against Arizona, according to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapaport.

Bush, who made two tackles in the game, has been starting at free safety in place of injured starter Jairus Byrd, who is battling a knee injury.

Byrd is reportedly expected back in the next couple of weeks.

With Bush down, the Saints will re-sign veteran safety Kenny Phillips, according to a league source, to shore up the safety position.
