    Darrelle Revis not cleared for contact

    Posted by Josh Alper on September 12, 2012, 12:14 PM EDT
    Giants Jets Football AP

    The Jets returned to the practice field on Wednesday, but cornerback Darrelle Revis wonít be able to join his teammates.

    Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com reports that Revis has been cleared to resume physical activity after suffering a concussion in the season-opening victory over the Bills. That means he can run and lift, but he hasnít yet been cleared for contact and, as a result, wonít be able to participate in practice. Missing practice shouldnít be a huge deal for a player with Revisí experience and the fact that heís been given some clearance would seem to bode well for his chances of playing against the Steelers.

    Ultimately that choice isnít in the hands of Revis or the coaches. As Florio pointed out on Tuesday, Revisí status is up to an independent neurologist because of the NFLís concussion protocols. The fact that the Jets are calling it a ďmildĒ concussion means nothing because a player either has or hasnít been concussed under the terms of the program. Revis will have to pass all of the tests before heís allowed to get back on the field.

    If he canít, the Jets will turn to Kyle Wilson as a starting corner across from Antonio Cromartie. Wilson had an interception against Buffalo, but heís still a big step down from Revis on the field.

    Not an issue. This is a good sign. Means he is asymptomatic, and non-contact activity is the first step in the process of full return to play.

    Someone thought that there was a chance they would let him practice over giving him more time to recover?

    He'll do some lifting, classroom work and do the walk through.

    Nothing shocking here.

    Romney's poll numbers, thats what is up.

    Would not rule out his return on Sunday. If he remains asymptomatic through increased activity, should play.

    What if the independent neurologist is a Steelers fan?

    Yeah right. That means that someone from Pittsburgh actually got into med school.

    Kind of like the new owner of the Browns?

    I doubt he plays Sunday. Doctors usually don't clear these type of cases right away in fear it could look bad on them should he play and get another.

    Revis wont play Sunday. It's out of the Jets and Revis's hands.

    I don't think a Steelers fan could spell neurologist much less be one!

    Kyle Wilson matched up on wallace or brown would be the worst possible scenario. He would get killed by either guy.

    Slip the independant nuerologist a few hundred bucks and we will be fine. Everybody has a price.

    Too late. Kraft will have already slipped him a few thousand to bench Revis.

    I guess you haven't looked at his poll numbers recently, unless that was a sarcastic statement.

    Did you and Sar miss the part that says it isn't up to Revis? If he gets cleared, he plays, if he doesn't get cleared, he doesn't play. There's no gray area here.

    If he plays, I want him covering Brown. Cro can handle Wallace's speed, and after not practicing all week, the last thing we need is Revis trying to go stride for stride with Wallace down field and pulling a hammy.

    Are you that naive? They ask him questions about how he is feeling. Guys lie all the time and say they are fine.
