Jets’ Revis has sore hamstring, status uncertain
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Darrelle Revis‘ balky left hamstring is acting up again.
The New York Jets cornerback said his leg was “very sore” after the team’s victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night. Coach Rex Ryan was not sure Tuesday if Revis will play against Denver on Sunday.
“There was added swelling in his leg,” Ryan said, “but hopefully he’ll be ready to roll.”
Revis returned Monday night after missing two games with a strained hamstring, sustained in the first half of the Jets‘ 28-14 win over the New England Patriots in Week 2. He said after New York’s 29-20 victory over Minnesota that the hamstring bothered him throughout the game.
Ryan said he was unaware of that.
“I thought just the opposite,” Ryan said. “I thought about challenging him more. I never saw it.”
Ryan added that he hadn’t spoken to Revis as of early Tuesday afternoon. He also said the team would not rest Revis this week against Denver just because the bye is the following week, giving the cornerback more time to recover.
“If he’s healthy, we want to play Darrelle,” Ryan said. “It’s not vacation time. It’s time to beat somebody. This is an AFC opponent and we need to win games so we can get into the postseason. That would be my thought. Is he going to be better three weeks from now if we don’t play him or all that? I think that still has to be determined.”
“We wouldn’t have put him out there if we didn’t think he was healthy,” Ryan said. “We thought he was healthy, ready to play. I think he felt he was healthy, ready to play.”
Revis was not up to his best against the Vikings, as the Jets used Antonio Cromartie on Randy Moss. Meanwhile, Revis mostly defended Percy Harvin and Greg Lewis in what Ryan called a “decent football game” by his star player.
“For the standards of Darrelle Revis, let’s face it, we expect him to go out and if this was golf, we expect him to birdie every hole,” Ryan said. “That’s the truth. Now, if he has a couple of par and a bogey every now and then, what’s wrong with Revis, you know what I mean? But hopefully, this injury is not that big a deal.”
