MIAMI FL – After the Jets ugly win against the Dolphins Sunday, the biggest thing on everyone’s mind involved with the organization… staff, media and fans isn’t the team’s unimpressive performance on both sides of the ball, it’s the status of their franchise player, All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis who injured his knee during the game.
Revis left the game in the second half after his left knee appeared to buckle when trying to tackle Dolphins RB Daniel Thomas. The injury initially seemed to be very serious as he winced in pain on the field and while being taken off. He was seen afterwards boarding the team bus walking without crutches but with a noticeable limp.
Revis declined to speak to the media or comment about his injury after the game. Coach Rex Ryan acknowledged that the loss of Revis would be a devastating loss for the team.
“Clearly, with Darrelle, your best player, of course you’re going to be concerned.” said Ryan. “I don’t know anything about it right now. We’ll find out with the MRI.”
According to the team, the MRI is scheduled tomorrow morning and everyone in Jetsland will be holding their breath until then hoping not to hear the dreaded “tear” word when the results are revealed.
The loss of Revis would be a back breaking blow to the team who despite being touted as a premier defense before the season by the Coach and many NFL experts, has struggled, giving up 72 points in 3 games.
Revis’ replacement is former first round pick Kyle Wilson who has yet to show that he can handle the role as a starter or even a replacement or extra CB for that matter. Making matters worse, Revis’ partner on the other side of the field, Antonio Cromartie has struggled the first three games.
All in all, bad news for a team seemingly going into the hardest next two weeks of the season, with matchups against the 49ers and Texans.
