The Bucs are on record saying they are comfortable with where Darrelle Revis is in his recovery from knee surgery seven months ago. But should there be a concern that Revis will not be on the field next week for the start of OTAs? During his introductory press conference, general manager Mark Dominik stated the team was confident in Revis’ progress or else they would not have moved forward with the deal to acquire the All-Pro cornerback. However, the team also has stated they would be cautious with his return so the original projected return-to-the-field date for Revis is training camp — as it was when he was still a member of the Jets. Sports Talk Florida’s Jenna Laine also confirms that her sources have told her multiple times that the Bucs are fine with Revis and his progression. So to answer anyone’s concerns about Darrelle Revis not being on the field until training camp, don’t worry about it. In fact, the Bucs are wise to take a cautious approach. This is not a sprain that Revis suffered, it’s an ACL. Another positive to take from this is the added work the younger guys will get, like Leonard Johnson, Anthony Gaitor, and Jonathan Banks. A point Jenna makes in her post. For the next two months, keep in mind there may not be a Revis sighting on the practice fields of One Buc Place. Even if he returns for training camp, should the Bucs play him during preseason games? I wouldn’t. The post Darrelle Revis to miss Bucs OTAs appeared first on The Bay Cave.
