New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan told players he was "embarrassed" by a controversy surrounding his wife on Wednesday, CB Darrelle Revis said.
Foot fetish videos emerged on the Internet with a woman who bears resemblance to Ryan's wife, Michelle. Asked several times about the videos during his news conference on Wednesday, Ryan declined to address it and said it was "a personal matter."

"He basically came in there and said, 'You guys might know about the situation; some of you guys might not know,' " Revis told the paper. "'You'll find out later on today. Right now, I feel embarrassed, but it's something personal with me. But right now we need to focus on Chicago,' and he'll take care of it from there."
The Jets travel to play the Bears on Sunday. A win would clinch a playoff spot.
Jets GM Mike Tannanbaum pledged the "full support" of the franchise to Ryan. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the league considered it a "personal matter."
