A lawyer for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis told KDKA-TV that Revis needed medical treatment after an incident on Pittsburgh’s South Side last weekend.

There are varying reports about what happened. WTAE-TV in Pittsburgh reported that Revis could face felony charges as Pittsburgh Police investigate the incident. The KDKA report is different and said Revis was assaulted by five people but did not offer any details on the extent of his injuries or what might have led to the incident.

The WTAE report said two men were taken to a nearby hospital after a confrontation with Revis and a friend. The South Side is a popular night spot and is not far from the Steelers’ training facility.

In a statement, the Jets said they’ve spoken to Revis and are aware of the incident but have no further comment.

The WTAE report said police are investigating but said Revis has not been charged. One of the men injured alleged that punches were thrown and said Revis tried to delete cell phone video of the altercation and threw the phone into the street.

Revis, who played college football at Pitt, is from the Western Pennsylvania city of Aliquippa. He just finished his 10th NFL season.

    Revis Island = Rykers island

    Revise is a punk. He’s a married guy prowling around at night. He shortened his career because he’s lazy and not motivated to train hard. He had a few good years but he’s always been about Mevis.

    The Pats really missed out not signing him to that $90 trillion contract. 🙂

    No worries, Goodell say everything is cool.

    It was probably Woody, Mike and other Jets staff trying to get their money back.

    Revis Island is under attack!

  7. billypogo says: Feb 16, 2017 6:09 PM

    I guess they didn’t release all the details for “safety” reasons?

    And he’ll still hold out for a big payday lol

    It seems like a couple of fan boys were following and recording Revis while he didn’t want the attention. I don’t blame him if he decided to punch them out. However, he needs to travel with a larger posse to keep people like that away.

    And the Jets are right on track for another highly successful season…

    Someone probably got irritated at him talking about himself in the third person.

    Move on here. Just another ghetto, bling punk. He will sign a few autographs at the Station and all will be forgotten. Rules dont apply to guys like him.

    So it’s not just wide receivers he has problems getting separation from?

  17. dtp15 says: Feb 16, 2017 6:39 PM

    From hold out to knock out

  18. navyvandal says: Feb 16, 2017 6:46 PM

    Even if the Patriots signed him to a big contract, we would released his ass the very moment Belichick found out about this. Remember Hernandez?! Danny Roach was reporting on WBZ will the helicopter followed him driving to Foxborough. 15 minutes later, back on Route 1 he went!

    destroying evidence = 4 game suspension

    When “Keeping it Real” goes real wrong.

  21. codiablo says: Feb 16, 2017 7:08 PM

    Revis has so much money a felony should mean nothing to him…wait, he won’t get a felony because he has so much money…civil suit will be settled whether he’s guilty or not, felony will be dropped to lower charges or altogether by good lawyers.

    3 great years does not equal a hall of fame career
    either

    most overrated player ever

  23. maverick2560 says: Feb 16, 2017 7:27 PM

    This is not typical behavior by Revis. Being a Pittsburgh native one can
    tell that the Southside of Pittsburgh is now full of bars where young adults party. It is the scene of many fights on weekends.
    It used to be a mill town with a bar every block. About 10-15 years ago
    it became a yuppie and college student haven.
    Many a person can be assaulted and or jumped on any weekend.
    I’m sure the editor will agree. Let’s wait and see on this one. The Pittsburgh City- court is full of preliminary hearings based upon
    alleged assaults. The Police are young and fairly aggressive which is
    natural based upon the scene. Often these matters work out at the
    prelims.

    Revis, Felon.

  25. crush22 says: Feb 16, 2017 8:43 PM

    Must have learned that phone trick from Shady.

  26. motsuret06 says: Feb 16, 2017 8:43 PM

    Stupid Revis and I would not be to sure about no charges as Revis has a mouthpiece speaking for him. Either way, he will end up paying because of deep pockets.

  27. magnumpimustache says: Feb 16, 2017 9:09 PM

    Revis had to stay and fight. He can’t run any more.

    where was joey porter?

  29. nomoreseasontix says: Feb 16, 2017 10:20 PM

    He’s soft. He needed treatment because he was not used to contact.
    He’s a football player who shied away from contact.

  30. dirtdawg54 says: Feb 16, 2017 10:20 PM

    “He just finished his 10th NFL season”.

    Yeah. Literally. Now he’s just finished.

    Veiled racism

  32. Angry Orange Man says: Feb 17, 2017 1:17 AM

    I’m wondering if when in the pokey, he’ll try and hold out for more cigs?
