TAMPA, Fla. -- Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis worked with the first-team defense in each period at practice Monday, a step forward for the four-time Pro Bowl player as he continues to recover from a torn ACL in his left knee sustained last September.
Revis' work in training camp had been limited to individual drills against reserve wide receivers and brief seven-on-seven sessions in recent weeks. But his efforts to begin this week, which included limited reps and no contact, were a self-proclaimed "huge step" as he eyes a Week 1 return against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.
"It's the most work I've done, which is great, man," Revis said. "The game plan has just been to take it one day at a time. We're just trying to get as many reps as I can. Today, my knee has been feeling good. It's good for me to be in the team activities and get out there."
Both Revis and Bucs coach Greg Schiano have been noncommittal...
