Jets Fear Torn ACL For Darrelle Revis

The New York Jets are fearing the worst for their All-Pro cornerback. After watching him get carted off the field with a knee injury during Sunday's 23-20 win against division rival Miami, the Jets are concerned that Darrelle Revis suffered a tear of his anterior cruciate ligament, which would end his season. Without Revis, the Jets relied on cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Kyle Wilson to stop the Dolphins' passing game, and the two didn't do a spectacular job, allowing penalties and big plays throughout the second half.

Revis has been among the best, if not the best, corners in the game for the past four years. He's made four straight Pro Bowls, been named to three straight All-Pro teams, was named AFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and led the conference in interception return yards last year. In the NFL's annual player rankings this offseason, Revis was named the No. 5 player in the league.

The Jets are 2-1 and will host the San Francisco 49ers next week, but Jets fans will shudder to think what two games against Tom Brady and the Patriots will look like without Revis in the secondary.
