Jets coach Rex Ryan said before his team played the Dolphins that he wanted his players to “put some hot sauce on” Miami running back Reggie Bush. Bush, who got hurt in the game, said this week that he wasn’t happy about that, and he suggested that the injury to Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis could have been karma.
Now Ryan want Bush to know that he wasn’t saying his players should target him.
“By no means do I ever want to see anybody leave the field due to an injury,” Ryan said, via the New York Daily News. “I think he definitely misinterpreted my comment.”
Ryan said that when he talked about Bush before the game, he was just pointing out that the Jets had to make him the focal point of their defense.
“The next time we play him he’s going to get attention from us because he’s a great football player. It’s almost a compliment,” Ryan said.
Even if it’s not a compliment Bush appreciated.
