Buccaneers waiting for word on Darrelle Revis’ groin injury

The Buccaneers’ season has taken a turn for the better over the last three weeks and they’ll try to make it four in Carolina next Sunday.

Having cornerback Darrelle Revis on hand to stop wide receiver Steve Smith would be a big help on that front, but the Bucs won’t know for a little bit whether or not that will be the case. Revis injured his groin during Sunday’s victory over the Lions, which forced him out of the game and prohibited him from returning.

Coach Greg Schiano said, via Pat Yasinskas of ESPN.com, Monday that Revis was having an MRI and that the team would use those results to devise a plan for his recovery. The Bucs moved rookie Johnthan Banks across from Calvin Johnson after Revis was hurt, a matchup the Lions targeted a couple of times with success before Johnson was quiet in the second half.

Schiano also announced that tight end Tom Crabtree has been lost for the season with a torn bicep. That will make three tight ends on injured reserve for Tampa and it will almost certainly mean a new arrival to join Tim Wright on the roster at the position.

    It’s weird they say groin injury when he was grabbing his ACL.

    Here’s one Panthers fan hoping that the MRI brings good news and Revis will play. You know Steve Smith wants him to play. “ICE UP, SON!”

    Why should he bother? He got paid.

    Yo, dcstinks, mega tron lost without Revis on the field. To the rest of you knuckleheads, yea, he got paid. Bet you wish he was on your team. Get well fast Revis, we need you and the knuckleheads need you too. They’ll have to find someone else to hate.

    Whenever he gets burned, he grabs something like he’s hurt.

    He’s been doing this for years now.
