Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Darrelle Revis Reveals He Was Briefly Knocked Out Against Panthers
This weekend, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Buffalo Bills in what will likely be a battle for pride between two teams that won’t be in the postseason. One of the biggest things the Bucs will have to do is stop a 4th-ranked rushing attack led by Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller of Buffalo.
While the front seven is busy defending the run, Tampa Bay’s secondary can’t afford to get caught and give up a big play via play action. One of the guys that will be assisting in that effort is Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis, in his first season with the team — that is, if he plays.
Last week against the Carolina Panthers, Revis endured a couple of injuries. While defending a play on Steve Smith, Revis bruised both his chest and his shoulder. At the same time, he bumped his head pretty hard and revealed that his teammates told him he actually blacked out for a couple of seconds after the play.
“They were saying that I got knocked out for a second,’’ Revis said. “I’m fine, though.’’
Thankfully, Revis is fine. He also told the media that he had to go through the league’s protocol for concussions, but that he passed that as well. As for suiting up Sunday, Revis looks like he should be a go. He said that he’s still experiencing a bit of pain in his shoulder and chest, but in all likelihood he will be on the field.

After only two years with the Jets, Smith is about as worn down as a 30-year-old punching bag. But the criticism is only going to stop if he puts points on the board, a skill he has yet to master. And these internet jokesters have noticed ... Here are three of the meanest memes of Geno Smith you'll find on the Internet: Read More
