REVIS SUFFERED MILD CONCUSSION DURING JETS’ WIN
Wed, 12 Sep 2012 02:30 AM EDT

The New York Jets’ impressive start to the season was tempered somewhat Monday with the news that star cornerback Darrelle Revis sustained a mild concussion in the game.

Revis’ status for Sunday’s game against the Steelers is doubtful.

“He seems to be feeling happy, but whatever those (test) scores are, apparently that’s low,” Rex Ryan said. “I’ll lean on the doctors and trainers. We will see how he progresses during the week.”

Later, in an interview, Ryan declared Revis attended Monday’s meetings and looked fine to him.

The NFL’s protocol on concussions states that a player cannot practice or play till he has been cleared by the team doctor and by the team’s independent neurological consultant.

On Sunday, Ryan claimed Revis had endured a “head injury.” Initially, the All-Pro corner said that he was fine, but he went for tests Monday morning and the concussion diagnosis was announced at noontime.

“You can’t lose a player like Darrelle and say you’re not going to suffer with a dropoff in production,” linebacker Aaron Maybin announced. “He’s the best cornerback in the league. But so far as people stepping in to get things done, we’re very confident in their ability.” Betting lines

Revis was hurt on a fluke play in the fourth quarter of the N.Y Jets’ 48-28 win over the Buffalo Bills. He was chasing RB C.J. Spiller and landed on his stomach after a diving attempt to tackle him. While on the ground, Revis was unintentionally kicked in the head by LB Bart Scott, who also was in pursuit.

Revis took a few moments to get up and walked slowly to the sideline, where he was checked for a concussion by the medical staff. He did not return to the game. Afterward, Ryan never discussed the word “concussion.”

Later, Revis was in the locker room, chatting with squad, but he didn’t speak with the media. The team, citing the league’s media policy for players with head injuries, did not want to make him available to speak. Revis also was off-limits on Monday.

Concussions are a hot-button issue, and the league has directed teams to use caution with head injuries. Ryan claimed he will “err on the side of caution,” depending on the medical staff.

Revis set up the N.Y Jets’ 1st touchdown Sunday with an interception. He also shut down Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson, the only player last season to beat Revis for a touchdown.

The New York Jets would miss him enormously against the Steelers, who’ve QB Ben Roethlisberger and 3 threatening receivers – Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace and Emmanuel Sanders. Nickel back Kyle Wilson, who also had an interception in the opener, would start in Revis’ spot.

Revis has missed only 2 games in his career due to injury, Week 3 and 4 in 2010 thanks to a pulled hamstring. The Jets won both games, beating the Miami Dolphins and Bills, but the QBs were Chad Henne and Ryan Fitzpatrick, respectively – neither of whom is in Roethlisberger’s category.
