FLORHAM PARK, N. Wes Welker Womens Jersey .J. —
Darrelle Revis is feeling better these days, recovering from the concussion that
sidelined him Sunday. The New York Jets All-Pro cornerback still isnt sure,
though, if hell be back in uniform for the teams next game at Miami. “Im going
through the tests and things” Revis said Monday, “and doing what I need to get
back and help my team.” And the Jets sure could use him after they lost 27-10 to
the Pittsburgh Steelers, with the AFC East-rival Dolphins up next. Revis
suffered what the team called a “minor concussion” last Sunday in the season
opener against Buffalo when he made a diving attempt to tackle the Bills
C.J. Spiller and then teammate Bart Scott accidentally kicked him in the head.
He said he felt as though he was in “a fog” after he was first hurt, but has
gotten progressively better since. He was cleared to participate in non-contact
drills Friday, but ruled out for the game. He had been limited to light running
and lifting weights earlier in the week. “I feel good,” he said. “I feel pretty
good. The only way we can figure it out is the things that Im doing test-wise,
what the doctors are putting me through. From those results, theyre showing up
great, and Ive just got to keep on passing those tests and move forward.” Revis
needs to be cleared by the team physician and an independent neurological
consultant in order to first practice with full contact and then play. Because
of the NFL protocol for players with head injuries, coach Rex Ryan cant
definitely say hell have Revis back in his secondary on Sunday. “I dont think
you can assume that,” Ryan said. “He has to—to the NFL standards—pass
those tests right now. He looks to be doing well, so hopefully he will be
playing.” The teams characterization of the concussion as “minor” didnt matter
to Revis, who is hoping to feel 100 per cent soon. “Any blow to the head, you
have to take it serious,” he said, adding that he never experienced any
sensitivity to light or other usual side effects. “Mild, severe, whatever it
could be, its still a head injury and thats how youve got to look at it.” Revis
said one day of the testing might be better than the previous day, so he has had
to be patient during the process. It is the first concussion he suffered at any
level of football. He was replaced in the starting defence by Kyle Wilson, who
had a solid game in his absence. But, Revis is considered by many to be the best
cornerback in the league, a player who changes offensive game plans because of
how he shuts down opposing wide receivers. The Jets clearly missed his presence
against the Steelers speedy trip of Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emanuel
Sanders. “I really wanted to be out there to play with my teammates,” Revis
said. “You know, looking at the tape, theres things we did that we can easily
correct. Not taking anything away from the Steelers, who are a great team. But
theres things we need to clean up on our end for us to be better.” Throughout
the last week, Revis has spoken several times to teammate Eric Smith, who has
missed time during his career after suffering a few concussions. “Weve been
joking around a little bit, not to say this isnt a serious matter,” Revis said,
“but I would always joke (in the past) with Smitty and say, Get back because we
need you. Now, hes saying that to me.” Ryan had
