Reid said he apologized to Hurst for dissing him before the game.
“I feel bad that I didn’t know — I didn’t give the proper respect to Hayden Hurst in this game,” Reid said, via Charles Goldman of USA Today Sports. “I apologized to him for that. I still feel confident and always will be confident in our team and our defense to go out and play tough football. Credit to [the Bengals], they went out and played a hell of a game today. [They] made a couple of more plays than we did and came out with the win.”
“He’s a very talented receiver,” Reid said last week about Hurst on WDAF-TV. “More of a finesse-type of guy, not the best blocker. I’m going to lock him down, you know what I mean? Straight up.”
Reid finished with four tackles.
