TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Darrelle Revis is expected on the practice field when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers open training camp.
The three-time All-Pro cornerback who's the centerpiece of an effort to overhaul the NFL's worst pass defense has been cleared medically to participate in some activities after missing most of last season with the New York Jets following surgery to repair a torn knee ligament.
The Bucs obtained Revis from the Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year's draft, then signed him to a six-year, 96 million contract.
Tampa Bay reported for camp Wednesday. The first practice is Thursday, when Revis will be limited.
"He'll be out there tomorrow," coach Greg Schiano said. "With all the injured guys, we have individual plans for them. Darrelle is going to do some stuff, but he isn't going to do everything."
Tampa Bay was last in pass defense a year ago, coming within 38 yards of allowing the most yards passing in league history.
"He's in good shape. We're going to play him back into football shape. Cutting, moving with other guys -- not just by himself," Schiano said. "He's a professional. He knows what he needs to do to get ready, and we're going to help him."
The Bucs haven't determined how much Revis will play during the preseason. The goal is have him ready for the Sept. 8 regular season opener against his old team.
