NY Jets Lose Darrelle Revis For The Year
Despite escaping yesterday's game at the Miami Dolphins with a 23-20 victory, the New York Jets are back in New Jersey with a sour taste in their mouths. During a press conference earlier today, head coach Rex Ryan announced that star cornerback Darrelle Revis has suffered a torn ACL, which prematurely ends his 2012 season.
Revis left yesterday's game in the third quarter with an apparent leg injury, and then underwent an MRI exam this morning back in New Jersey. The former Pro Bowl cornerback will wait two to three weeks to have surgery, with an expected recovery timetable of six to nine months.
This injury is a tremendously huge loss for the Jets secondary, which now has Antonio Cromartie at the top of the depth chart and 2010 first-round pick Kyle Wilson as the new starter. The Jets will be back in action this Sunday September 30th against the San Francisco 49ers, kick-off at 1 p.m.
