FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - Darrelle Revis is ready to shut down receivers _ and questions about his balky left hamstring.

The New York Jets’ All-Pro cornerback declared himself healthy Monday after using the bye-week break to rehabilitate it at the team’s facility.

“It felt great today,” Revis said after a light practice. “Now I can settle in and just play football. I’m 100 percent.”

He said he’ll be able to play unimpeded in the Jets’ next game at home against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

“I’m ready to go,” he said. “I’ll be there Sunday. We did everything we could this week. This week worked out for me to stay here and get all the treatment I needed to get.”

Revis missed two games after straining the hamstring, was very sore when he returned against Minnesota two weeks ago and was still not completely healthy last week at Denver.

“He was moving around great today,” coach Rex Ryan said. “I think we’re going to see Darrelle at 100 percent, so that’s exciting for me.”

Revis received treatment on the hamstring and went through running drills and defensive backs drills during last week’s six-day break. He said he had no swelling in the hamstring or any complications.

“I was here all week, just trying to get back and get this hamstring right,” he said. “We did a couple of running drills, DB drills when I was here last week. We’ve been doing everything. I’ve been running.”
