NY Sports Nut:
In the fourth quarter of the New York Jets’ season opener against the Buffalo Bills, All-World cornerback Darrelle Revis was accidentally kneed in the back of the head by Bart Scott.
The Jets were cruising to an easy double-digit victory and I wasn’t quite sure why so many starters were still in the game. That came back to bite the Jets as their best player’s status is in doubt for this Sunday’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a mild concussion.
If a player is diagnosed with a concussion, their status is immediately in jeopardy for at least one week if not more. This is a very hot topic in the NFL and considering how important Revis is to the Jets defensive scheme, it will be interesting to see how the organization handles the situation.
The Jets know that they need Revis to play, especially considering how deep the Steelers are at receiver, but the organization could be put under a microscope and face criticism is they mishandle the situation. Whether or not they put Revis’ health ahead of winning this Sunday, they need to act and say they do.
Revis was cleared to resume physical activity but is limited to non-contact drills. He will likely be a game-time decision against the Steelers as the Jets will take as long as possible to give Revis time to be cleared to play.
