Miami Dolphins RB Reggie Bush, hoping to play Sunday vs. Arizona Cardinals, not feeling much pity for Darrelle Revis or New York Jets
By Post Staff
Dolphins running back Reggie Bush, making his weekly Tuesday morning appearance on The Paul and Young Ron Show in South Florida, confirmed that his MRI on Monday showed no structural damage on his left knee, which he hurt in the second quarter Sunday against the Jets. Bush said he hopes to play this Sunday at Arizona.
“It’s just a bruise,” Bush said. “I’m working hard to get back for this week.”
Meanwhile, Bush is seemingly upset with the Jets, who have been accused by some fans for deliberately trying to hurt Bush on Sunday. Calvin Pace said “we had to put him on out” after Sunday’s game, and was forced to clarify on Monday that there was not a bounty on Bush and his injury was not deliberate. Jets coach Rex Ryan also said in the days before the game that the Jets had to put “hot sauce” on Bush, or hit him extra hard.
In Tuesday’s radio appearance, Bush intimated that karma served the Jets when Darrelle Revis later suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s game, ending his season.
“It’s like the old saying, what goes around comes around,” Bush said. “They talked about 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.”
The Dolphins also made a handful of roster moves on Tuesday. They signed safety Jonathon Amaya and linebacker Mike Rivera and waived safety Troy Nolan and offensive tackle Ray Feinga.
Amaya and Rivera have both previously been with the Dolphins. Amaya played in 10 games as a rookie with the Dolphins in 2010, and was part of the trade that brought Bush to Miami last July, going to New Orleans with a sixth-round pick. Rivera was in training camp with the Dolphins in 2011. Both will mostly be special teams contributors.
The Dolphins also terminated the contract of offensive lineman Artis Hicks, who was on Injured Reserve with a neck injury. Hicks, slated to start at right guard this season, was a surprise addition to IR at the end of training camp, and the Dolphins cut him Tuesday for failure to disclose an injury.
