Greg Schiano says Darrelle Revis set to go
By Pat Yasinskas
Tampa Bay cornerback Darrelle Revis will be on the field when the Buccaneers hold their first training camp practice Thursday, coach Greg Schiano said Wednesday.
Revis, Tampa Bay’s key offseason acquisition, is coming off major knee surgery. Schiano implied he will ease Revis in.
“He’s in good shape,’’ Schiano told the media. “I want to play him back in to cutting and moving with other guys, not just himself.’’
Schiano said he hasn't decided if Revis will play in any preseason games. Schiano said he has individual work plans for Revis and guards Davin Joseph and Carl Nicks, who also are coming off injuries.
Schiano said the only player who won’t be ready for the start of camp is punter Michael Koenen. According to Schiano, Koenen injured his toe while chasing his son at the beach last week. But Schiano said the injury is only expected to sideline Koenen for a day or two.
