Is Darrelle Revis Ready To Return?
Last season, cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered from a torn ACL early in the season against the Miami Dolphins which forced him into surgery and sidelined him for the entire year. Before his injury, he was labeled as the best cornerback in the NFL, shutting down basically one side of the field. During the offseason, Revis was acquired by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a trade for a first-round pick and a conditional pick this year. Shortly after Tampa acquired him, they signed him to six-year deal worth $96 million.
With all of the business taken care of with Revis, the Buccaneers expect him to do great things on the field. Revis underwent his surgery in October which gave him plenty of time for his rehabilitation and yet he still hasn’t played in an in-game situation. I think that Revis is ready to play, but I understand why the Bucs coaching staff wants him to sit out the first few preseason games. It would be terrible if he suffered from another knee injury in only an exhibition game, and would inexcusable on the staff’s end.
Revis will most likely miss the next preseason game against the New England Patriots to give him one more week of recovery and to learn the defensive scheme. I would expect him to play week three of the preseason against the Dolphins, ironically the same team he got hurt against. With even more irony, if Revis does not play week three of the preseason, he will most likely play week one at his old team, the New York Jets.
