Revis suffers mild concussion, expected to play this week

Giants Jets Football AP

Jets coach Rex Ryan said cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a mild concussion in yesterday’s win over the Bills, and will undergo tests this week.

“What I’ll say is, with me I’ll always lean on our trainers and our doctors,” Ryan said, via Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger. “With any head injury and any injury at all but especially a head injury, I’m going to err on the side of caution. We’ll see how he progresses.”

Ryan said Revis “seems to be feeling good,” which follows a our report last night that he was “fine.”

Revis was kicked in the head by teammate Bart Scott while making a tackle on Bills running back C.J. Spiller.

He’s expected to be cleared in time for this week’s trip to Pittsburgh.

    NFL Player Meme…
    Today – I’m fine coach, put me back in the game.
    Tommorow – Sues NFL for every penny due to headaches.

    I wonder if he embarrassed himself and then faked injury like he did when moss exposed him. Holds every play the most overrated player in league history. Gets a paycheck solely because of NY biased media. Hard knocks is a joke

    Reevis is the greatest cornerback in the history of the NFL.

    @ chesslungo: the bills don’t think he’s overated.

    Didn’t think there’s such a thing as a “mild concussion”?

    If he was diagnosed with a concussion, and they want to let him play this week, it should be interesting to see if the NFL gets involved.

    You would think that with all the lawsuits, that they would put a serous beat down on any team that would play a player that got a concussion with giving him some time off.

    “Holds every play the most overrated player in league history.”

    I assume that when you watch Revis play you’re sitting next to your seeing eye dog.

    Revis is the best corner in the NFL, Jets need him if they plan on winning a few more games this season.

    While I wouldn’t call Revis the best CB in NFL history, he’s probably the best of his generation (and the heir apparent to Darrel Green)

    And he certainly doesn’t hold on EVERY play, just about 50% of the time. Great players know how to get away with things that others can’t.

    Second best. Revis is incredible and he’s tops in the league right now but Deion Sanders was a MONSTER. Let’s see how Revis’ career plays out before we bestow that honor. Hope he’s good to play sunday.

    Hardest hit Bart Scott has made in years. Too bad it was on his teammate.

    Cant really compare Sanders to Revis as the rules have changed so much since Sanders played. Rules now protect the WR much more so Revis has less to work with. When its all said and done for Revis he will be known as 1 of the best to EVER play the CB position.
