FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Rex Ryan already said he's sorry. He thinks it's about time Reggie Bush did, too. The New York Jets coach is still bothered by the Miami Dolphins running back's comments a few weeks ago that Darrelle Revis' season-ending knee injury was a case of "what goes around comes around." Ryan drew the ire of the Dolphins star when the coach said the Jets were going to put "hot sauce" -- saying he meant lots of attention, not an intent to injure -- on Bush before New York's 23-20 overtime win last month. Bush hurt his left knee in the game and later implied it was karma that Revis also hurt his knee and was lost for the season. "I apologized for my comment," Ryan said Wednesday. "I expect him to do the same." Ryan said after that game on Sept. 23 that his "hot sauce" comment was misinterpreted, and he never coaches to hurt another player. Linebacker Calvin Pace raised some eyebrows after that game, saying the Jets planned to "put him on out" but later apologized and insisted there was no "bounty" or anything malicious meant by his comment. Bush, whose injury wasn't serious, was angry, though, saying during a radio interview: "They talked all week about putting hot sauce and this and that, and they ended up losing their best player for the rest of the season. So, it's sad that it happened because of that, but I'm going to be back." Revis had surgery last week to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee and hopes to be back in time for training camp next summer. Ryan said he wasn't worried about Miami retaliating Sunday when the teams meet again at MetLife Stadium and again reiterated that his comments were taken out of context. "I never said we were trying to injure Reggie Bush. That's not even close," Ryan said. "He's going to get our attention. I'm sorry, but he's a player that's going to warrant a lot of attention, and that's what I meant by my comments. If it was taken differently, I apologized for that. But trust me, we know when he's in the game." Ryan added that he respects Bush's abilities and said it's "bad for football" when any player of his caliber is injured for any period of time. "This game is great because of the players and talent, and that's what I mean," Ryan said. "If Reggie thinks about it, you want Darrelle playing in this league." Ryan later said he doesn't necessarily expect Bush to apologize to him, but perhaps the running back should say sorry to Revis at some point. "I'm sure he kind of got caught up in the moment," Ryan said. "He was injured. I mean, obviously, no one likes to get hurt. And that certainly wasn't my intention and I hope he understands. But he doesn't have to ever say anything to me, or even reach out to Revis. "But I would expect him to, for the simple fact that that's his peer. That's one of the elite players in this league."
