Jets CB Revis out for Miami game
“I want to be out there with them, but I can’t,” Revis said Wednesday. “I’m just going to take my time and get back to 100 percent.”
Revis did not practice, and coach Rex Ryan said the All-Pro would not even travel with the Jets (1-1) to Miami. Instead, he will stay back at the team’s facility to receive further treatment on the hamstring.
“He’s itching to get back,” Ryan said, “but it’s too risky of a proposition to put him out there.”
Revis said he’s getting progressively better each day, but he and the team decided he would not be ready in time to play Sunday.
All-Pro center Nick Mangold (right shoulder) and backup offensive lineman Wayne Hunter (shin) spent practice on the stationary bikes, but Ryan expects them to play. Linebacker Jason Taylor was limited while wearing a brace on his injured left elbow, but is also expected to play against his former team.
Revis was limited in practice last week with tightness in the hamstring, but said he felt completely healthy heading into the game against New England on Sunday.
He immediately grabbed at his leg after Randy Moss made a spectacular, one-handed 34-yard touchdown catch in front of him with 53 seconds left in the first half of New York’s 28-14 win.
Revis was examined on the sideline, and then taken to the locker room for treatment. He didn’t return and watched the second half in the trainer’s room.
On Monday, Revis would not rule himself out for the Miami game, but acknowledged that it could take him a week or two to heal. He said it would be the first game he has ever missed at any level.
“I’m just relaxed,” he said. “I’m dealing with the hamstring thing right now. There’s no point in getting emotions in it. I’ll just root my team on and watch them win.”
Revis pulled the same hamstring last summer and missed two preseason games, and has said that injury was worse. So, he knows it was smart for him to sit out the second half against New England as well as this week.
“I know from previous hamstrings that if I continued to play that game, it probably would have gotten worse,” Revis said. “Then, I probably would’ve been out way more weeks than I could be coming up.”
Revis missed all of training camp while holding out for 36 days in a contract dispute, and acknowledged last week that it likely played a role in the injury.
