Appearing on The Dan Patrick Show, the Ravens' Bart Scott said that while he believes Reggie Bush took a cheap shot at him, he never intentionally injured the Saints' rookie running back. Scott said he would never disgrace the game that way and also explained his "hot sauce" comments.

During the play in question, Scott pulled Bush to the ground and rolled over Bush's lower legs as the two spun down.Bush sat on the field for several minutes and winced as he was examined by trainers. He then limped to the locker room with help from team staff. "The media darling, aka the golden boy of the NFL, tried to take a cheap shot at me, so I told him I was going to put some extra on it," Scott told the Sun. "He can do all those shakes he wants, but I wasn't going anywhere. I put a little hot sauce on that ankle." Tuesday, on ESPN Radio, Scott said he has the utmost respect for Bush and didn't think his tackle was a cheap shot, but did stick to his claim that Bush tried to cheap-shot him. As for that hot sauce? Scott said he was referring to playing in New Orleans, where they have, hot spicy food -- not to putting something extra on his tackle.
