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.
