Darrelle Revis misses part of practice with hamstring issue

Darrelle Revis threatened that a third holdout was “close,” and now he’s missing from practice for another reason.

The Jets cornerback didn’t participate in team drills during the first full practice in pads Sunday, but insisted his right hamstring tightness wasn’t a long-term problem, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

I don’t think it’s that serious,” Revis said. “It just a little bit of tightness. Actually I felt great going out to practice… but they just told me to sit out [during team drills].”

Revis has pulled himself before, claiming to be “light-headed” in on offseason practice in 2010. He also missed some time in 2010 following his holdout with a strain of his left hamstring. He said this one wasn’t a protest, however.

“It has nothing to do with that,” Revis said about his contract. “I’m here. If I wasn’t going to be here, I would have held out. So, that’s not the case.”

Revis said the pace of practice has been more intense this year, with new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano keeping a higher tempo.

Apparently, it was too high for Revis.

    Revis felt an alarming tightness in the back of his upper thigh where his wallet sits, once he realized he would face substantial daily fines for holding out.

    His hamstring is holding out.

    Was he trying to cover Randy Moss or Stevie Johnson in practice?

    He’s just practicing for when he gets burned in a game.

    He has that “tight hamstring” routine down pat.
