Jets’ Darrelle Revis cleared to practice, status unknown for Sunday

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been cleared for full-contact practice Thursday for the first time since he suffered a concussion against the Buffalo Bills in Week One.

According to ESPNNewYork.com, Revis and the Jets have been given the go-ahead for the team’s shutdown corner to participate in all practice drills.  Revis had been participating in light workouts since last Friday.

The news could provide a big boost to the Jets, who face the division-rival Miami Dolphins in Week 3, as they look to bounce back from their 27-10 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.

“There’s only one Darrelle Revis,” head coach Rex Ryan told the New York Daily News. “It’s hard not to smile if he’s out there. You feel good having the best player.”

For now Ryan is unsure if Revis will be able to play against the Dolphins on Sunday, but the fourth-year Jets head coach remains optimistic his star cornerback will be able to suit up.

Revis had an interception and seven tackles in the Jets’ Week One win against the Bills.
