Jets coach Todd Bowles said on Thursday that the team would wait until Sunday morning to make a decision about whether cornerback Darrelle Revis will play in Pittsburgh against the Steelers.
They may not make their call official until that point, but there doesn’t appear to be much hope that Revis will be able to play after hurting his hamstring in last Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks. Bowles said Friday that Revis is getting a doubtful tag on the team’s final injury report, which leaves him unlikely to play for the 1-3 Jets.
Assuming things don’t take a rapid turn for the better, that will leave Buster Skrine, Juston Burris, Marcus Williams and Darryl Roberts as the cornerback options against Antonio Brown and company.
Wide receiver Eric Decker has been ruled out for the second straight week due to a partially torn rotator cuff in his shoulder and right guard Brian Winters is out with a concussion. Wide receiver Quincy Enunwa is questionable with a knee injury after not appearing on the injury report earlier in the week, so the Jets could be quite shorthanded at wideout if things don’t go his way.
