Jets' Darrelle Revis making progress
By James Walker
The biggest concern for the New York Jets this week is the status of Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, who suffered a mild concussion in last weekend’s victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Our colleague Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com has the latest. He reports that Revis has been cleared for physical activity but will not practice Wednesday. Revis is making solid progress and this is a good sign that he could be ready for Sunday’s huge matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1).
The Jets (1-0) need Revis to beat Pittsburgh. The Steelers have a bevy of good receivers, including Pro Bowler Mike Wallace, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders. The Jets can pick and choose which receiver to put on “Revis Island” if the cornerback plays in Week 2.
In other Jets news, receiver Jeremy Kerley was named the AFC Special Teams Player of the Week. Kerley had a 68-yard punt return for a touchdown against Buffalo.
