Bucs don’t think Darrelle Revis’ injury is serious


Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis‘ status for Week 13 was up in the air until just before kickoff because of a groin injury, but he was able to give it a go against the Panthers.

Revis didn’t make it to the end of the contest, although his groin didn’t turn out to be the thing that forced him to the sideline. Revis injured his chest during the third quarter of the game and didn’t return to Carolina’s 27-6 win.

Coach Greg Schiano updated Revis’ status on Monday and it doesn’t sound like there’s much concern about his status in Tampa. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Schiano said Revis has some pain in the upper torso but that the injury doesn’t appear to be “real serious.”

Stroud also reports that the Bucs believe that linebacker Jonathan Casillas has been lost for the rest of the season due to a knee injury. He’d be the 14th member of the team to hit injured reserve this season.

    Darelle Revis on a stretcher is better than any player on the Packers secondary

    Why isn’t Darelle Revis in the talks for being an injury prone player?

    This guy will take himself out any game when he’s getting beat.

    Chest injury? Sounds like Ted Ginn Jr broke his heart on that TD burn

    When are teams going to stop paying veterans for their past accomplishments? Asomugha was terrible when he went to Philly and now Revis is getting torched the few plays he manages to be on the field for.

    I wouldn’t overspend on any veteran player unless I absolutely had to plug a hole in my O-line, or in the extremely rare cases when a QB like Brees or Manning hit the market.

    Drew Rosenhaus was right, paying rookies small contracts and making them play on them for four years before they’re able to sign new deals has absolutely crippled player pay for everybody who isn’t an All Pro…

    I knew he would be active with the groin injury. I believe in his new contract with the Bucs it’s play or not be paid. Probably cost him a Million Bucs. That’s a lot of dough. Get well Revis, your fun to watch and one of the few to watch.

    Even though I don’t like his attitude at times, he’s a hell of a cornerback when healthy. I hope he fully recovers from all of his injuries because he sure is fun to watch.

    Taken a page out of Ed Reed’s book. Get paid to do nothing.. Told you he was afraid to cover anyone.

    He left the game yesterday after being burned for a TD by Ted Ginn and then dropping an easy INT on the next series. Diagnosis- Bruised ego and strained pride.

    Ice up son, Ice up.

    The biggest problem that Revis has is Greg Schiano.

    Revis keep stealing his pay check, he should at least wear a mask.
