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.
