New York Jets' Darrelle Revis Blows Out Knee
Any chances the New York Jets had of making the playoffs were dealt a crushing blow Monday as head coach Rex Ryan announced that All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis, 27, has torn the anterior cruciate ligament of his left knee in a game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday afternoon.
Revis injured his knee in the third quarter on a non-contact play. He had an MRI on Monday and will reportedly need surgery immediately. Revis had missed the last game against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a concussion he suffered the previous week when the team faced off against the Buffalo Bills.
Without Revis, the Jets lose their best and most important defensive player. This means the Jets, who are known for their excellent coverage schemes on defense, may have to adjust how they play certain opponents. “There’s different ways to skin a cat. You can’t just take away their best receiver with one guy,” Coach Ryan said in a press conference on Monday. “Again, we’ll find a way.”
It is believed that 2010 first-round draft choice out of Boise State Kyle Wilson will step into a starting cornerback role. The Jets will get their first look at life without Revis when they face the San Francisco 49ers this upcoming Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. –Chris Camacho
