New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis will be sidelined the next two to three months after undergoing wrist surgery, according to an official team announcement as reported by Dan Hanzus of NFL.com.
The Jets’ announcement stated that Revis would be in a hard cast over that time period, but is expected to be back in time for training camp. It is believed that he suffered the injury against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3, but he played through it. After soreness lingered, he opted for surgery.
Revis played in 14 games in his first year back with the Jets last season, posting 39 tackles with nine pass-breakups and five interceptions while still proving to be one of the NFL’s best shutdown corners despite being 30 years old. He’s no longer a spring chicken, but still more than capable of getting the job done.
