Darrelle Revis cleared for contact

AP

It looks like the Jets will have Darrelle Revis back on the field this week.

Coach Rex Ryan started his Wednesday media session by announcing that Revis has been cleared for full contact and that he would be practicing fully on Thursday for the first time since suffering a concussion in Week One against the Bills. Assuming there isn’t any setback in the next two days, it’s a good bet that Revis will be lining up opposite the Dolphins on Sunday.

“There’s only one Darrelle Revis. It’s hard not to smile when he’s out there,” Ryan said, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

We’re guessing that Joe Philbin, Ryan Tannehill and Brian Hartline are a little less enthused by the news.

Revis was able to return to physical activity last week, but never got the green light from the doctors tasked with administering the post-concussion tests that players must pass before they can resume doing everything on the football field. The fact that he’s been able to get some work in over the last week should mean that Revis is able to make a quick tranistion back to the starting defense, which missed him while trying to stop Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger in Week Two.

  1. Doesn’t matter. He can’t keep the Sanchize from throwing picks. I think Miami will ride last week’s slaughter of the Haiters to a nice victory against New York’s bastard NFL team.

  2. Revis earned his money last week without even playing.. Best corner in the game by far.. Tannenbaum better pay this man!

  3. Dolphin fan but admit Revis is ridiculously good. Without him, Jets were okay at secondary. Should be interesting matchup, both receiving corps are not good, secondary much better on Jets, but Miami without a doubt has a better run game. Could be close game.

  4. @ dougydougdoug, Sanchez has thrown 1 int in 2 games and that was off the hands of the receiver. For him that is a great start to the year. Plus the NY Defense has given up 7 points with Revis on the field (3 quarters) and 48 in the 5 quarters without revis. To say they missed revis is an understatement. So Sanchez isnt going to need to play his @ss off because the defense is going to chew up the rookie Tannehill.

    Glad you don’t watch football games but just post uneducated posts bashing the Jets like a moron. Revis is if not the best one of the best tacklers at the corner back position.

  6. j3ts83: Take things personally, much?

    evinnie: Simply put, no. Sanchize is a very weak link in an otherwise pedestrian offense. Didn’t you just lose a running back to a major concussion?

    Don’t get too far ahead of yourself when you look at the lone victory against the Bills. The Jets have had their number for a while now, just as Miami seems able to punch the Yets’ ticket more often than not.

    I think Miami wins, going away.

  7. With Revis back the Jets can get back to those man coverages and crazy exotic blitzes Rex loves so much. For most QB’s it is hard to read and with Miami starting a rookie, the Jets should be able to capitalize on this.

    Dougy: you seem to be taking it more personal than anybody. It is easy to sit back and listen to ESPN talk about players but unless you watch them, you dont know much. Sanchez has been perhaps the lone bright spot on this Offense thus far this season. If not for those dropped passes in the Pitts game (Sanchez didnt drop them), the game COULD have been much different. He is getting the ball out quicker (only sacked 2 times) and making accurate throws (1 INT / 4 TD’s). Does he misread at times? Yes, but what QB doesnt?

    Well I guess everyone else does too since I got all thumbs up. And no we didn’t lose our running back to a major concussion he actually returned that game and his backup Powell looked very effective. Miami usually plays the Jets tough but Sanchez has looked good his first two smarts making good decisions, as other poster mentioned only one pick off of a Jet player hand.
