Found August 05, 2013 on The Bay Cave:

So it looks like the Bucs and Darrelle Revis are no longer saying he is on track to hit the field against the Jets in the first week of the season. Instead, both sides are now saying they are “planning” on having him ready. I think that’s still too far down the road. Right now just going day by day, but that is the goal and we’ve talked about that. I want to be there, first day, first game, with my teammates. So much for the team counting on him being ready Week 1. It appears more and more now like it’ll just be a small hope for opening day and hold him out to be 100% come the second week against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. But even with that, he may not even be 100%. And f they try to push him during the preseason, we can forget him making it through the preseason.
