New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is officially out for the remainder of the 2012 season due to a torn ACL, according to head coach Rex Ryan. Revis sustained the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory against the Miami Dolphins. He was untouched on the play, fell to the turf clutching his knee and required a cart to be removed from the field.
Sunday's game was Revis' first since suffering a concussion in Week 1 against the Buffalo Bills when teammate Bart Scott accidentally kicked him in the head while pursuing Bills' running back C.J. Spiller.
The loss is an enormous blow to the Jets' defense as they prepare for the San Francisco 49ers in Week 4 and beyond. Kyle Wilson and Antonio Cromartie will be among those expected to step up in Revis' absence.
Rex gamely talking about others "stepping up" without Revis, but his demeanor says everything. He looks, understandably, crushed.— Judy Battista (@judybattista) September 24, 2012
