METAIRIE, La. — Rafael Bush missed practice his ninth consecutive practice Friday and is officially listed as questionable heading into New Orleans’ NFC South showdown at Carolina Sunday.

He’s one of three players listed on New Orleans’ game status report, a strikingly small list for Week 16 of an NFL season.

Linebacker Keyunta Dawson (calf) and tight end Josh Hill (hamstring) both were limited. Safety Roman Harper wasn’t listed on the report for the first time this week; he was limited Wednesday with a hip issue but was full both Thursday and Friday.

Bush (ankle) hasn’t been on the practice field since injuring his ankle in the first half of New Orleans’ Dec. 2 loss at Seattle.

For Carolina, only running back Jonathan Stewart (knee) is out. Tight end Greg Olsen (foot), tight end Brandon Williams (hip) and receiver Steve Smith (finger) all are listed as probable.
