Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis has finished his first week of practice with his new team. In that short amount of time, general manager Mark Dominik was confident enough to tell Sports Illustrated’s Peter King that Revis is “almost certain” to play in Tampa Bay’s Week 1 contest against his former team, the New York Jets. King notes that the Bucs have been encouraged by Revis’ progress this offseason, so it’s not entirely surprising to see him projected to suit up for the opener. However, after being acquired from the Jets earlier this year, there were questions surrounding Revis’ potential availability and recovery timeframe, so it’s certainly considered news to hear Tampa Bay’s GM put such an expectation out there. Of all the people involved, King notes that Revis sounded the least optimistic that he’ll be ready to return. Perhaps attempting to keep expectations down, Revis said that while his goal is to return Week 1, he’s not sure at this time what the future holds. “At this time,’’ he said by phone from Tampa Friday, “I can’t tell you. But it is my goal to be ready for the first game, and it’s coming along well.’’ After a week of practice, Revis told reporters that he is not experiencing any swelling in his surgically-repaired knee. As such, the cornerback has been able to test the knee extensively, and so far it’s responded. Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
